I found this quote in a magazine: "Your ultimate job as a mother is to prepare your children to leave you."

Ella is only 3 almost 4 weeks old and that already makes me sad. Last night we put her in her crib, in her room, at 8:30pm. She slept there until 10:30pm when she got up to eat. Mike and I both agreed it was too early to let her sleep in there by herself. Mikes says, "what if she wakes up and needs something?" The girl has a powerful set of lungs, we would hear her. He said it was like watching your child get on the bus for the first time, we are just not ready for that yet.

I never thought my days would consist of getting up at 6 in the morning, diapering, washing bottles, changing clothes a zillion times a day (twice already this morning) and getting spit up on. You know what, I don't even mind. I look into those sweet, blue eyes and it makes getting pooped on at 3am all worth it!

New Template

It's a boring Saturday in the Williams household so I started playing around with my blog. Do you like the new template?

Ella is sleeping away in her swing, Mike is helping his Step-Sister move and I'm doing nothing. I should be doing laundry or cleaning up my room or something productive, but I don't feel like it. I do need to go visit Old Navy and try and find some clothes to wear while my body continues to shrink. I know its only been 2 weeks, but darn it, I'm tired of wearing maternity clothes. They said it would take at least a month.....I want it to be now!!

Hope everyone has a fun, safe weekend!!

Times are a changing....

It's amazing to me that my life has changed so much in just the past 2 weeks. I can't believe that Ella is 2 weeks old today. For those of you that know me, you might find some of these changes unbelievable but trust me, they are so true.

Can you believe that I'm getting up at 6:30am every morning? Now sometimes, I do fall back asleep for an hour or two after feeding the little one, but most of time I'm up for the day. Considering I'm not going to bed until 11-12am, I have to say that is pretty good for me. I like my sleep.....I don't get it anymore. We get a wake up call at 1:30-2:00am and are usually up for an hour.

It amazes me everyday how much I can love this little human. My life has changed so much in the past two weeks, I can't imagine my life without her now.

She is doing awesome! She is awake a little more each day and she is starting to smile more!! She just stares out at the world with those big blue eyes, I wonder what she is thinking?

Soon Mike, Ella and I will be ready to rejoin the world. Doesn't she look just like her daddy?

Ella's Arrival!!

Our baby girl has arrived! Check out http://ellamariewilliams.com to see more pics and hear about her arrival into the world under news.

We got home Saturday afternoon and things have been going well. My sister has been here all week and I'm not sure what we would have done without her. Ella is fast becoming a chow hound and loves pooping and peeing on her Daddy!! He's gotten it a few times already. It's amazing to me that in just under a week I've grown so attached to this little body. She is so awesome and I can't wait to teach her all about the world around her.

Here are a few pics for now:
