small victories



Here is a peak at our day at the zoo on Wednesday.  It was our first time to be alone with Baby Girl.  It was also the first bottle she would take from me.  I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but I am crying tears of joy and relief that she felt comfortable enough to eat with me.

We are home now and doing so well!  She is an absolute joy!  So smiley and happy.  She is eating well and sleeping well.  Moonpie and Buddy are doing great with her.  We are loving being in our little nest, getting to know our littlest bird.

and i know...you can't even see her face.  we are still feeling a bit shy during this very intimate time.
