It's definitely been hard to find the time to blog between feedings, diaper changes, visitors, taking care of myself, and finding time to nap. I know things will settle down soon though! I've been meaning to do a post with pictures from the first meeting with all the people near and dear to our hearts.
My mom and brother in law were the first two to meet him. They were in the waiting room when he was born. Jeremy's mom had a cold so unfortunately she wasn't able to be there those first few hours.
Uncle Jonathan and Aunt Riley!
I unfortunately forgot a picture with my old coworkers and friends Morgan and Kara. They were actually the first friends to meet him Thursday afternoon, and I was so disappointed I forgot a picture with them! They brought me a bundt cake which was a delicious treat after a long labor.
Brian and Ashley came next.
Those were all our hospital visitors!
Jeremy's mom, Janine and her boyfriend, Terry were next. She had been watching our dogs so this was Sydney and Sofie's first time meeting Nolan.
On Tuesday, my friend, Brittney, dropped off a meal and met Nolan. After dinner, our friends and neighbors, Cathleen and Chris came over to meet him too. Neglected to get a picture of both these visits. Cat and Chris also came back with a delicious dinner on Wednesday night. She remembered I loved fetticine Alfredo and made that! So good! We have a lot of fun with them and I am excited we have friends in the neighborhood.
We have been blown away by the generosity, love, and support of our family and friends. It's been amazing to have all these meals so I can focus on my recovery and nursing the baby. We've also received tons of flowers, cards, snack boxes, and other sweet, thoughtful gifts. I want to take a minute and thank all of you for making this transition with a baby super smooth. Love you all! That wraps up our first week of visitors.
We have lots more coming from out of town including my dad, best friend from college, my brother, sister in law, and nephews, my other brother and his fiancé as well as my best friend from high school. All their flights are booked! We also have more local friends coming next week. So much excitement! I love sharing our bundle of joy with our family and friends! More soon!
