Baby Piccadilly is doing great! She is breastfeeding well and has just gone through a growth spurt. Her newborn cloths are starting to get tight.
We just got back from a whirl wind tour of showing our little one to family members who live a long way from us. We drove through snow, snow and more snow for an entire week only to get home and find yet more snow! That is o.k. because we LOVE snow so none of that was a bother. The only complaint would be that Piccadilly hates her car seat and we had such long hours in the car.
In retrospect, I think it was a little ambitious to leave on a trip with a two week old and if I had to do it over again I don't think I would. I am still in a fair amount of pain which made traveling for me a nightmare. But we are home again and trying to get Miss P on a schedule so that perhaps we could get a little sleep at night.
I am afraid that I am experiencing postpartum depression which is no surprise since I was very high risk for that any way. I cry all day long at the silliest things and the fact that I have entirely lost my mind to sleep deprivation is not really helping matters.
We were able to spend Thanksgiving with family this year which was fantastic! I am thankful for the usual things but mostly I am thankful that I am NOT PREGNANT anymore...LOL!
I love my little 'Dilly girl and she makes me laugh. We are blessed to have a mellow baby who only seems to fuss when she needs something. Trust me, I do NOT take that for granted!
We are trying to get into the swing of this parenting thing and working hard to find a groove to help our days become more manageable.
I have not been able to accomplish any tatting...or anything else for that matter..but I do have a lot of ideas that I would like to start working on.
Again I would just like to thank everyone for all the prayers, thoughts and wishes that went up for me and Piccadilly. It is a true miracle that she is such a healthy little lass. We all still marvel that after all we have gone through she turned out to be a perfect little baby.
I will try to post more frequently. Hugs to everyone!
