Well we are finally home and getting into the groove of things. I am sure most of you already know how traumatic the birth turned out to be. I was going to write about it but I still am not ready to talk about it yet. Hopefully someday soon. On a positive note we are both healing and I am so very much in love with this beautiful little girl.
Kaili is a week and 2 days old and so far she is a great baby. Nights have been smooth sailing and are pretty much the same each night. She will eat around 9 or 10 pm and sleep until 12:00 or 1:00am. Then after another feeding she will sleep until 3:00 4:00am and then wake at 5:00 to 6:oo am. for the day. I get up with her at night and then Shane will take her in the morning while I catch another hour or two of sleep. So far it seems to be working out great.
She is in her most active state during the morning hours and then the sleepiness kicks in around lunch time. After her lunch she seems to spend most of the day napping. Sometimes it’s so hard not to wake her just so I can love on her. Her cheeks are the most adorable kissable things and she makes the cutest faces when she is trying to wake up from a nap.
I have heard how hard it can be to have a newborn. I would like to say that she is a piece of cake after everything we have been through. I am one lucky lady to have an amazing husband and a beautiful daughter that we worked so hard for finally home in my arms. Uh oh here come the tears..
I will keep taking pictures of the little princess and updating you all with the wonderful things going on in our lives!

Kim, I’m so happy to read this latest post. When do Kaili’s bandages get to come off?
Thanks Janet! We have her Dr. appt. tomorrow morning with her surgeon. I will update tomorrow to let you know what the plan is!
So happy all is going well. You certainly deserve it! Anxiously waiting to hear the latest after your appt.
Kaili is just so cute. Kim I hope you are feeling better and healing as well.
We all thank you for the updates. I love that family photo at the front door!
