Getting into the Groove

Since my baby, Eisley, has been home for about a month now, I feel like I have gotten into a pretty good groove. I may not have a “to the minute” routine, but I do have a loose one. Since she is so small developmentally still, she eats about every two hours, so there isn’t much to do that doesn’t involve feeding. 

The first two weeks that we were home, after being in the NICU for so long, were really difficult emotionally. My husband and I had a lot of support from the doctors and nurses and now we only have each other. Then, a few days after we brought her home, my husband went back to work, so I was all alone! I know this is something most of us moms go through, but I wasn’t prepared for that! I actually couldn’t think much beyond delivery! Birth was the scariest part for me, and gave me the most anxiety. I didn’t give much thought to what came after that. And I certainly didn’t think a 50 day stay in the NICU would be apart of the process. 

However, now that a few more weeks have passed, I am feeling more at ease with Eisley (my baby) and have adjusted my mindset in a more positive direction. I have been making sure to read scripture everyday so that I can make sure I can have strength and wisdom to make it through each day. An infant is A LOT of work! Goodness! ❤

  1. Wow, it HAS been a long time since I visited your blog. Congratulations! I didn’t realize you had a baby. She is beautiful and I love her name. I am glad things are getting a little easier for you. This is a learning experience for both you and her (and your hubby of course). I wish you blessings and will try to not stay away so long.

  2. Oh my gosh, so tiny! My kids are 10 and almost 9 years old now…I miss when they were babies. Just thinking of it brings tears to my eyes. They grow up FAST. I know it’s hard when they are babies (kids are always hard, just the challenges change every year as they grow up)…enjoy it. Every cuddle. You got this mama!
