The Hiccups

Saturday, July 30th, 2011

Our New Family

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

Link has really changed the dynamic around our house hold.

We’ve been home a week now, and things are starting to fall into a routine. We understand a little about how he sleeps. We understand how often we need to feed him, what his cries mean, and that we don’t need to panic at every little “different” thing he does.

But the dynamic is completely different. Amber and I are constantly working together in a way I’m not sure we ever have before. It’s a good thing.

Our parents, siblings, and friends, are here almost every day as well, bringing a whole new atmosphere of friendship and care.

Jill made a joke the other day about it “taking a village” to raise a kid. And you know what… it really does. The love and support we’ve gotten from all of our friends and family the last week has been nothing short of a miracle. So to all of you, THANK YOU!

And while we are getting close to finding our groove over here, it’s good to know we have backup when we lose our groove.
