On our Own....

My mom has been up here helping since Gracie was born and she had to head home this morning, so we're officially on our own. She got to spend a part of her birthday here with her new grandbaby, so that's a nice little present. Hope the rest of the day is good, too (tell dad you're not allowed to do too much trucking on your birthday).

Actually, things are going pretty well here. We're setting up a bit of a routine and she's a really good baby, so we'll survive. It sure was nice to have an extra set of hands around to make meals and lend her experience by offering advice and help with everything around the house and just to have her here to visit with, plus my counters have never been so full of yummy baking.

Gracie's doing well. We're both kinda catching on to things so she's eating better and she usually sleeps fairly well. We went for our first little walk today in the stroller and she slept through it all, but I think the fresh air was good for all of us.

Here are a few more pictures of us and the grandparents with Gracie in the hospital:

And cuddling at home with my mom:

So peaceful:
