She's here. Mila Carys Jorgensen came to meet us on Monday, 1-13-14, at 5:05 pm. She is a tiny little thing - 6 lbs., 13 oz. and 21 inches long and she looks just like a doll I used to play with when I was little. We are completely in awe of her and I forgot how easy it is to stare at a baby all day.
We came home yesterday and so far, life has moved slowly around here. Mila has seemed to take to her new surroundings well, nursing good for mommy and even sleeping well in her crib last night. Cruz is adjusting as a big brother, too. He sat with me this morning while I nursed and gently patted her back and at one point, leaned down by her lamb chair and whispered, "It's okay, Mila, Cruz is here." That familiar sense of peace that surrounds a newborn baby has settled into our home and we are feeling so very blessed.
More to come...eventually. :)
