A Day at the Park

Atalie enjoyed her first trip to the park, but she did get cranky with us fussing with her to get 8 billion pictures. :)

We've been doing great lately. We're tired, but that seems to be par for the course. She's such a good baby. We went to her two week checkup a week ago and she's already 8 pounds 3 ounces! Everything seems to be going really well.

Ben's schedule at work has been slow lately, just because it isn't really tourist season right now in Branson. It's been a bit hard since we're shorter on money now, but it's really nice to know that he has time to get the rest that he needs and he's been able to do all of his obligations with the intership at the church. This week he's going to start descipling two high school guys, which will be awesome! He's really got a heart for teaching the Word and this will be a great way to ease into teaching without having it be a large group of people. We're really excited to see what God has in store for us with our church, but please keep Ben in your prayers since wearing all of these hats can be quite exhausting.

We were very lucky to have Gina's mom come up and help us with Atalie's first two weeks of life. It was so nice to be able to call on her experience and extra set of hands! She also brought an afghan and two quilts that she has been painstakingly stitching ever since we found out we were pregnant. They are absolutely gorgeous, and it is impossible to see all the details from only a picture. Atalie is already so spoiled!! :) We are so sad that the time has already come and gone, but it was a real blessing and special time together.

almost 2 weeks old

Atalie is doing so well! She is a very happy baby, and only sometimes keeps us up at night. Tomorrow will make two weeks that she has been with us, and it has been flying by. Hopefully she won't grow up too fast!

Busy days

Since we've been home there has just been a buzz of activity! We are getting settled back in after the delivery of our wonderful little bundle, and it seems like there's always something that needs to get done! After the first couple of nights, we have settled into somewhat of a routine, but every minute there is a new challenge and surprise, with having a new baby around. Gina has been doing supremely well taking care of Atalie, she is such a good mom! I hope I've been able to help too but she is doing such good work! The hardest thing for everyone I think has been adjusting to our new sleep schedule. Night-time is sometimes just as active as daytime! We have been snapping so many pictures so there is always bound to be something new in our photo album if you want to see how she's doing day to day. We have just had so much fun getting to know our little girl and we are falling in love with her more all the time.
