update!!!

First of all, I want to thank everyone for leaving us such sweet comments! We feel so incredibly blessed! Thank you for sharing in our excitement and joy!!!

The outpouring of love we have felt from our family, friends, and neighbors has been overwhelming! Our neighbors have been bringing meals every night for the past two weeks! And not a day has gone by where we haven't had a package of baby items dropped off on our front porch! We are so extremely grateful!!!

This week has been wonderful! We are getting to know our sweet Sophie more and more! She is such a GREAT baby! She is eating about every two hours. She eats between two and three ounces every feeding. Needless to say, we aren't getting much sleep, but were not complaining!!!! It truly is a joy to have her in our arms!! What's worked really well is Shane and I are splitting the nights in half. He cares for her the first half of the night and then wakes me up around 2am to finish the rest of the night. My wonderful mom is coming over to spend the night with us tonight though, that way, Shane and I can get one good nights rest! Thanks mom!!!
We also discovered that she really likes her swing! She naps the best when she is in it!

The boys have adjusted really well to the addition of a sister! They simply adore her!

Riley is so sweet with her and just loves to kiss her head.

Corban is a great helper! His favorite thing to do is to give her a bottle. I am so proud of them! They are great big brothers!!!

We still just love to sit and stare at her! We can't believe she is here and she is OURS!!!! We are soaking in every sweet moment! God is so good and we are so... blessed!

Your boys are precious with her. She is so tiny and sweet. I can't get over all the blonde hair. You are going to have fun with bows! Congrats!

I keep thinking about you... and how trying the newborn stage is! I hope you are able to get some rest. It certainly looks like you have some wonderful helpers!

I just love the picture updates!
