The story of our journey into the world of international missions.
Sunday, June 3, 2012
One week ago, nearly to the hour, our little girl came into the world. Has it been a week already? We were able to return home from the hospital on Tuesday evening and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her. It has been fun trying to figure out where she got her ears, nose, and eyes from. It has been not as much fun, but every bit as rewarding, trying to figure out how to soothe her and make her want to sleep when we want her to.
Shortly after we arrived at the hospital early Sunday morning, my (Kevin) parents picked up our dog Cessna. She stayed there most of the week running around at the farm and getting to act like a dog. Yesterday we went to the farm so see my (Kevin) parents, get a little bit of sun (no more than 5 minutes or so) to help with a mild case of newborn jaundice (very common), and to introduce Cessna to the newest addition to our family.
Originally, taking Cessna back home wasn't going to happen for several more days, but as we were preparing to head home from the farm, she jumped in the front seat and would not get out. We figured we have gotten into enough of a groove as brand new parents, so we could try having a dog and a baby at the same time. Tasha sat in the back with the baby and Cessna rode in the front seat with me. Unfortunately for the dog, she weighs just enough to set the passenger seat belt warning off. In keeping with the Tennessee Department of Transporation regulations, and not wanting to disturb the babys' nap on the way home, we had to buckle her in. As you can see, she wasn't too thrilled. Safety first.
We hope you have a great week and look forward to updating you with more info!
