Hi everyone, Briar is five days old and is beginning to unwrinkle. He sleeps a lot (unfortunately mostly during the day) and is a very amiable little guy. We took him to the doctor on Thursday for a weigh-in and he has already gained weight over his birth weight (babies usually lose weight for the first few days). I have been too tired for visitors so far, but we did manage to stop in at G.G.'s for a brief visit with G.G. and Oma on the way to the doctor. Olivia is adjusting to life as a big sister very well. She goes to daddy for most things as I am stuck to a baby often. I am hoping it will all work out when Jeff goes back to work. Olivia LOVES to cuddle the baby. I think Briar loves it just as much. I am finding that although I am not AS paranoid about germs, etc. as I was with the first one, I am still having trouble when people are touching Briar's little hands with their 'been everywhere' hands. When he puts them in his little mouth, I want to choke! Anyhow, here are some new pictures of the little guy. Enjoy!

A few musings of a homeschooling, crafting, neurotic, organic loving and, most of all, kiddo adoring mommy...I've now become a widow. My best friend and husband died of a pulmonary embolism on March 25th, 2008. This blog has now become a place for me to mentally unload and try to figure out how to do this and who I am without him.
