744 Hours - Baltimore, MD - June 2010

I have been a mother for 744 hours (1 month). I don't think I've slept more than 100 of those hours. Sometimes I'm so tired that I find myself laughing at nothing and crying when I receive sweet packages containing little "happies" from our friends and loved ones.

I feel like I've come a long way in such a short amount of time. For example, I was embarthe first time I had to answer the door to the UPS man and sign for my package with a screaming baby in my arms fearing he would phone up DHS. Now I scribble my signature with a smile that says "what are you gonna do?" and he smiles back at me and says, "they do grow out of it, I promise".

Some people use a stuffed animal to show there little one's growth progress, but my mother-in-law gave El The Hungriest Caterpillar book and it came with a caterpillar with this butterfly blanket inside. That's what we're gonna use so you can watch our little butterfly grow.

Our "Little Miss"

Well it's only taken me 24 days to get back to the computer and for that I am both sorry and proud of all at the same time. I have also struggled a little with how to present this new family member to the blog world as there are true crazy people out there.

THIS poor girl had to deal with a true CREEP!

So without further delay, the hub and I proudly present our "Little Miss El".

Healthy and happy weighing in at 4 lbs 12 ozs.

We love her more than words can describe. Thank you to everyone for your prayers, calls, cards, meals, visits, hugs, advice, praise, and LOVE!

We are truly blessed to have you all in our life.

Stay tuned for a whole new level of "Road Warrior Stories". This story is just starting to get good!

Till Next time,
Bon Voyage!
