I really HAVE been photographing my daughter the past 2-1/2 weeks. I just haven't had time to process and upload them!! Ahem, so it's been a little hectic, okay?! ;) No really I have to send a huge THANK YOU to my Mom, she and my Dad have been staying with us since right before Lila was born, and I would not have been able to hold my eyes open at this moment if it weren't for her. She's made breakfast, lunch and dinner, cleaned our house, taken care of Parker, taken care of ME, and let Chris actually get some work done instead of being bombarded with all of the "helping out" on his own. I secretly think Chris will miss her as much as I will, if not more!
And... we've had a breakthrough over the past couple of days! Parker has relented it seems, and has been calling his baby sister by her real name for two days in a row!! I'm so relieved. I was just anticipating my little girl being confused about her name all the way until kindergarten.
He's already assumed the role of Protector, and has been keeping a watchful eye on her while she's in her carseat, so her tiny head won't flop over without Mama knowing about it... also putting her pacifier back in her mouth every time she spits it out in complete disapproval. ;)
And of course I'm on maternity leave... but I'm still here. :) I'm returning all phone calls and emails as soon as I'm able... albeit on a delay.... catch as catch can these days! Thanks for bearing with me.
I also wanted to send lots of hugs and appreciation to each and every one of you who have sent us such sweet love notes and comments here on the blog... to our friends, family, and clients, my goodness... to all of y'all who have emailed or called to congratulate us! We are so grateful for this much care and support right now, and we love you all dearly! Of course, Parker has been highly anticipating the UPS guy's almost-daily visit to our door now too... so thank you to everyone who has been so sweet as to send presents for Lila, and to Parker! I can't tell you how much it means to us. :) xoxoxox
