1 week under our belts...

Tomorrow marks our first week home from the hospital. We have had a great week. Izzy is good eater and sleeper. We are up usually at 2ish and 5ish in the morning, but she goes right back to sleep. We are so in love with her it is insane. I would hear all the time pre Izzy how crazy in love parents become with their babies. It is so true. With all of this love comes a ton of emotions. I'm on cloud nine at times and then crying for no reason. It is uncontrollable. I think I cry because I have so much love for Izzy and an even deeper love for Justin. My emotions have been taken to a whole new level. I still can't believe this is my life now. It seems so surreal that Izzy was inside of me for nine months and now she is living and breathing outside of me. I just adore her. Both of my sisters were in town last weekend to meet Izzy. It was really nice having them here. I miss them a ton. They both were amazing with Izzy. It was neat to see them interact with her. It has also been nice having my mom so close to us now (.5 miles away). Izzy had two projectile vomits yesterday, which I balled my eyes out and she was totally fine. I called up mom and she was over so fast to comfort her grown daughter! We always need our moms right? Justin has been fantastic with Izzy. He is an amazing father! I'm excited to watch their relationship grow. For now however, I'm focusing on being in the present and soaking in every bit of Isabella!

Oh so sweet, It made me cry to read this. The love really is hard to describe but soooo strong! I'm glad you are doing well and enjoying every minute of your little one. She is just precious!

Such a pretty little girl! Love that you are feeling so in love with your baby, no one told me about how crazy your hormones are after you've had the baby (I thought they were bad enough when you were preggo!). Just know that sometimes they swing the other way too and that's totally okay-you've gone through a massive experience and she's absolutely gorgeous. Enjoy these days and weeks, they fly by so quick!

Jess!!! Izzy is absolutely beautiful, she definitely has your eyes. I can't wait to meet her on Thursday. The feelings and emotions you have for your baby just keep getting stronger and stronger which is hard to believe. It truly is a miracle this job we have as Mommy's.
