Week1 Down

 Week 1 with our girl was great! We had a couple of hiccups but not with her. She has been perfect. I have no complaints! The language barrier is a little hard but we are doing great. She is doing great. She says... Thank You, No, Yeah, Mommy, Daddy, Water, Cereal and both boys are Beckham. Those are the main essentials right?!

Every night last week Emme woke up every 2 hours... on the dot. She would wake up crying "Mommy" Oh melt my heart! I am her Mommy! She knows that and she needed me! It was like having a new baby. I was kinda excited...well maybe not excited but ok with getting up with her. I wanted her to know that when she called for me even if it is 2:09am I will come to her. She is not alone.

That first night Parker woke up puking in the middle of the night! Welcome home Mommy! Actually Phillip got up and cleaned it! Such a good daddy. I prayed that stomach big out of my house!! We just couldn't deal with that the first week! Hiccup number 1! Thursday I was in bed all day with the bug! Hiccup number 2! But my sweet Philly came to the rescue and played the role as Mommy!

 Emme also woke up EVERY morning at 3:57 or 4:09 am. ready to go and WIDE AWAKE! The first night morning I went in there and 4:03 and her little tummy was growling soooo loud and every time it would growl she would suck on her fingers (all of them) really hard. It broke my heart because I realized that is probably how she has always pacified her hunger. Well not any more sister. We got up and I got her cereal. She has 2 BIG bowls, 2 bananas and a piece of cinnamon streusel bread!! I'm tell ya... This girl eats like a man! Every morning was like this until this past Sunday. She slept all night and woke up at 6:30am!!! Hallelujah!!! I felt like a new woman! I got to sleep in until 6:30am!!! As of today I believe we are on a normal sleep schedule! She is finally on America time! Praise the Lord. Although...I don't mind getting up early. Not 4:00am early but maybe I can make 5:30am a new habit! We shall see

Here are some pictures from this week.
