Brynn Eliza

It's been a crazy two weeks, but we've finally got it together enough to post some pictures of Brynn. At some point we'll recap the whole labor story and maybe even get around to telling about our adventure with being hospitalized with breastmilk jaundice two different times. But as for right now, let's just post some braggy pictures of our beautiful daughter.

I always pictured that she would take after Greg, but she sure does look a lot like me.

In the hospital (the original time. You know, to be born)

Home, sweet home. 

Baby mullet: 

I don't know why she sometimes sleeps this way? 

With Mommy:

Hello hello! 

With Daddy: 

Even though I've been looking forward to it for so long, I'm not exactly sure what I expected life with a newborn to be like. It's surreal that she's mine and that she's here to stay. It's wonderful. It's very hard. I've made mistakes. It's been hard to forgive myself. I am so happy and sometimes so afraid. Even though having this baby is different than what I thought it would be, I think this new experience with her and with my family is what we've always wanted. We're learning so much and we're changing in ways that we never could have without her. Like I said, it's crazy that she's mine and that I get to keep her here with me the rest of my life. It's amazing. Hard, but amazing, and that's all I've ever asked for.
