alive

we are all alive! ...and not to meantion home! yay!! this past tuesday we were able to take elizabeth home. it was a very wonderful day to say the least. everything went so smooth in bringing her home. everyone seems to be adjusting to the little one just fine. she doesnt make a whole lot of noise around here so its like shes not even here. every five minutes elijah has to find "baby" and be "gentle". he seems to love her more than we do. its very precious! she had a check up at the doctor on friday and everything looked great. she gained 4oz. which is so wonderful because that was one of the problems with her not coming home. she weighs a total of 5lb. 10oz. now. chad and i both do not want her to get any bigger, she is just so cute how she is. just a side note, i am doing fine. its definitely a challenge to feed a child every three hours, doctors orders and not have your own schedule but thats ok. like i said we are still alive. i also just wanted to thank everyone that has been praying the past two months for elizabeth and i, we have seen God work mightily in a lot of different areas and continue to see Him work everyday. thank you so much!! (pictures will be coming soon)

Yay!!!! that is great! i know what you mean about feeding every 2-3 hours.... getting kinda sick of it. especially during the night. oh well... could be worse.
thanks for stopping and saying hi at the hospital. it was good to see you again.
glad to hear everything is going well! answer to prayers!

Yay for being home! It sounds like Elijah is a great big brother too. We hope all is going great at home as everyone gets adjusted to baby time!
