Well I've gotten pretty behind on my project 365 posts but I don't want to miss any of these days so I'm going to play catch up right now.
More than anything these posts are just for me to come back and read - I'm not sure they are interesting to anybody else. But I dont want to forget anything about our first days as a new family of 3!
Sunday February 27th:
Sunday morning I woke up extra early to work on my Abraham bible study I have been doing. I have absolutely loved this study and it has come at just the right season in my life (no coincidence there, right God?) Monday February 28th:
I had been waiting and waiting for this frame to come in. I ordered this at the craft show I went to earlier in the month. It goes perfectly in Eli's nursery. And the saying on it makes me tear up every single time I read it. It says:
You are a child of God, you are wonderfully made, dearly loved and precious in his sight, before God made you he knew you, There is no one like you!
I wish everybody truly believed this about themselves and pray that Eli always knows this.

I was craving meatballs on this day like no other. So I made some yummy meatball sandwiches. They were delicious. In fact I could go for one right now!
Wednesday March 2nd:
I got these stickers in the mail from my friend Hillary. I can't wait to use them each month to document Eli's growth. Actually I can wait to use them cause it means my little baby is getting older! But these are super cute, thanks so much Hillary!

I kinda can't believe I'm showing this and it's absolutely disgusting but kind of funny at the same time. This is what my feet looked like the week before I had Eli, SO SWOLLEN. My body was in full "getting ready" mode. I was about to have a baby!Friday March 4th:
My mom and sister came to see me and we went to lunch together. When I look at this picture I think I just look DONE with pregnancy. Swollen face, swollen, feet, ginormous belly. Ha! Saturday March 5th - no picture

The day we went home from the hospital (tear). Eli had a bit of jaundice so we had to let him get some sun. We sat him in front of the window and let the sun shine on him. He was not a fan:Saturday March 12th:
My new reality: Huge cup of water, burp rag, bobby, shirt half way off, feeling exhausted, iphone at my side (reading material while nursing) and a sweet sweet baby on my lap. P.S. that white thing is a tank top not a bra.Sunday March 13th:
My mom had to run out and buy Eli some new PJ's cause he is so tiny and they were all too big. He is modeling his new PJ's:

This was the day my mom left to go back home. I was SO sad for her to leave! She helped so much while she was here. And I know she was sad to leave baby Eli.
