We're Home!!!!

Our Main Concern
We arrived home on Friday the 12th at around 4pm and have since been trying to get settled in with our precious little Angel and our two very big, and very hyper dogs. So far it has gone much more smoothly than anticipated. Both Rusty and Chance have instantly fallen in love with Audrey and we have already started seeing signs of them protecting her. I know it might sound silly, but I have actually been praying for God to let that transition (them meeting) go smoothly.
Audrey in a New Environment
So far Audrey has done seemingly well with the transition and the new environment. She has still been eating every 2-3 1/2 hours and has actually been sleeping quite a bit, which has been good for Angela and I. We took down her Pack-n-Play and replaced it with a bassinet that my Dad and Wanda gave us, and Audrey has taken a liking to it already.
She is doing great and so is momma, so I really appriciate all the prayers you have been sending on our behalf. We have been very blessed and we can not wait to introduce her to everyone.

Just sat her in the car for the first time!!

Right when we got in the house Angela sat with Audrey in her room and this is how the dogs reacted. They just layed there at her feet. "Hallelujah"

Our friend Kay made this for us and hung it on our hospital door. We are going to leave it up here at home for a while. :)

Audrey's first bath!!!! She screamed her little head off until I started washing her hair.

Mommy and Audrey Update

Angela and Audrey are doing great. Audrey has been progressing very well and has not had any problems breast feeding. In fact, she has been feeding every two hours for approx. 15-20 minutes each feeding.

Angela has also been doing great. She has started receiving pain medicine for the soreness around the incision area but has been able to start eating and drinking, as well as take a shower and walk the halls to stretch.

We have been very blessed throughout this entire process and God has truely answered all my prayers. I give Him glory for it all, and pray that He continue to protect Angela and Audrey, giving them strength and good health. Please continue to pray for our "little" family (I'm the exception/large one) :) , we can not thanks everyone enough for all the help that has been provided and the love that has been bestowed upon us. THANK YOU!!!!!

Here are a few more pics......

I'm Here !!!!!!!

We welcomed Audrey Grace into our lives on March 9, 2010 at 9:39pm. She waid 7lbs 13oz, and is 21 inches long. She is very healthy, and has been eating and developing extremely well. Here are a few pictures of our experience so far, and I will update you all as things progress.
