Parenthood




Macey is 2 and a half weeks old and I can hardly believe it. It has gone by so fast and at the same time it seems like forever ago that I had her. I am trying to get used to not sleeping...so far it's not going well. The first week of her life I was a wreck and cried to Zacc at least once a day. Although I still feel immensely overwhelmed, it's starting to get better. I can't believe how much I love this little girl (even when she is screaming and won't go to sleep). She is actually a really good baby, Zacc and I are really lucky. Here are some of the many pictures we have been taking! The first is Macey and Luke Rammell at a pool party. Next, is Macey sleeping, and last is Zacc feeding Macey her first bottle :)

These pictures are great! It's kind of funny, I saw that picture of Zacc and i thought "who's the grown-up". When I think of Zacc he's always the 16 year old I knew from my old ward. I'm so happy for you guys!

Oh my word, she's adorable!! Seriously! Congratulations you guys, well done. Someone told me a couple of weeks ago that you had a babywise question for me...you probably already have it answered, but if not, or you have more...please call! And happy parenting. It's hard work but well worth it. Can't wait to meet her!

It was so good to chat with you the other night!! I will miss you guys. We still HAVE to hangout even though we will be a lot further away! We'll come visit!

She is so cute and it sounds like you guys have it down! :o) Good luck with the lack of sleep...sometimes I felt like a walking zombie! It does get better though.

Oh, and I love the first pic...Luke has such a cute pouty face (that's my boy!)!

She is BEAUTIFUL! I love her hair. I don't know if I have said that already or not. I can't wait to meet her. She'll be a lot bigger but I still can't wait.

She is so cute! Congratulations again. Hope all is well! Enjoy her now as it won't be long until she's not a "baby" anymore!

Oh Michelle that is sooooooo normal. I remember the first time that shay had to go back to work, I balled that whole day. then when I had brody, he was working graveyards so I had to be up allnight with both of the children!! it was worth it all, it may sound crazy but I miss the little baby stage!!! She is so dang cute. the love that you have as mothers is incredible, isn't it? love ya guys.

Congrats Kids

Any time you need a cake you just let me know!!! Especially for Miss Macey ; ) She is so sweet. And if you, or you and Zacc ever need a break I would love to watch her! I can't believe she is a few weeks old already!

I bawled the first week with Jonah too. You should know it is totally a normal thing.(could be post-partum too, which I had a little bit of with Jonah) I still have my days where I feel like bawling. Parenthood is the hardest but best thing ever! Rewarding! That is the word I was trying to find.
You and Zacc are doing great I'll bet. Yes, sleep is important. You will get it soon! Let me know if you need anything. (not trying to sound cliche, just want to be helpful:)

Hey we can't wait to meet Macey. I get to see your sis every once in a while, but hopefully we will get to meet up soon. This is actually my blog. The other one is old and so i deleted it.
