Everyone said - wait until she's 6-8 weeks old - things will get easier. I think its right. We've seemed fall into our new "normal" around here. I'm getting used to working a few days a week, Josh is getting used to changing diapers and feeding a baby, and Eden is finally getting used to her "routine". Next we've got to get working on her sleeping through the night! I can't wait for that day (or night). Its hard to believe she is already 2 months old though. She seems like such a big girl now - its kinda sad how quickly they grow. As much as I want her to start playing and interacting - I'm going to miss those "newborn" days.
Eden had her first real visit from Nana and Papa Joe and Aunt Staci this weekend. I said "real" because the first time they came Eden was in the NICU and they couldn't really see her much. We had a great time just hanging out and making faces at Eden. There are more pictures at the link to the left (Eden's 2 month photos). We were so glad that they all got to come and visit for a few days. Now we just can't wait to meet the rest of the Carroll family - Skype will only suffice for so long.
I've never been one for journaling (that was my sister's forte), so you'll have to bear with me. This blogging thing is harder than I thought. My life seems so busy at times, but when I sit down to write about it, nothing comes to mind. I'll get better - just give me time.
