We have survived our first week at home as a new family. We have had a lot of visitors. Great food from my mom and members of the ward. I of course don't get much sleep at night but that's to be expected. Barry was able to stay home during the week which was a life saver. He took Andrew to the park everyday which has been good for the both of them.
We also celebrated Andrew's 2nd birthday on Thursday. Grandma and Grandpa Wachter came over along with Aunt Cathy and cousin Jake. I should have known better but we decided to open presents first. Then he didn't want anything to do with his cake. After some convincing, he did blow out his candles but didn't eat the cake.
On Sunday we did the usual Sunday dinner at my mom's and got some fun pictures with Brooklyn and Ruby side by side. They are so cute!
Last but not least... I was really worried about how Andrew would take to Brooklyn. He has thus far been wonderful. He loves his sister so much!!! He always wants to hold and kiss her. I hope this will continue once Barry goes back to work.
