Christmas week

We had a great first Christmas with baby Tori. As you can see by the pictures that she slept for a lot of the day, but loved being around all her grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

She got to meet Willie, Mae Mae and Pawpaw's dog. Willie became pretty protective of her by the end of the day.

Day at the Mall

We met my mom (Tori's Mae Mae) at the mall yesterday. We went to get our picture made with Santa. Tori was not affected. She slept for several hours while Mom and I got some Christmas shopping done. She was definitely the youngest one in line to see Santa.

We went to the doctor today. Tori weighs 8 lbs 6 oz. She is growing like a weed. She managed to stay awake the whole time. We got a great report from the doctor!

Weekend of Firsts

We gave Tori her first bath. It definitely took both of us to keep hold of her. She had a good time.

We also went on our first walk yesterday. It was nice for all of us to get some exercise and fresh air. I would say that Tori really enjoyed it, but she slept the whole time:)

One Week Old

Well, I finally have a free few minutes. It is hard to believe that Tori is over a week old. Becoming a mother is an amazing experience. God has given us a precious gift for which we are so grateful.

We are not getting too much sleep, but we are getting a little better each day. I know it will just take time...she has a lot of adjusting to do coming into this world. We are also blessed with wonderful family and friends who have shown us so much love. Bryan and I really appreciate the thoughts and prayers for us during the past few months.

One Day Old

"For you created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. " - Psalm 139: 13-14

Well, Amanda and I cannot seem to stay away from Baptist Hospital for some reason! Natalie and Tori are both doing great. I only heard Tori cry when she was getting her diaper changed otherwise all she did was sleep. I guess that is what newborns are supposed to do. Bryan seems to be adjusting just fine to being a dad. He even changed Tori's first dirty diaper! I know that Bryan and Natalie's parents are both so excited about having that first grandbaby on both sides of the family. Natalie's dad is so excited that he couldn't wait to see Tori this morning so he came to hold her at 5:30 bright and early this morning. I am not for sure if it is possible for her to be spoiled rotten already but I think that she is getting there!!!

"For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition which I asked of Him." -1 Samuel 1:27

Tori's Nursery

This is Tori's adorable nursery. Natalie did such a great job picking out all of the fabrics to go in her room. Now, all that the nursery needs to be complete is Tori!

Bryan and Natalie will be going to Baptist Hospital bright and early tomorrow morning where Natalie will be induced. I will post again tomorrow with pictures of Tori, who we have all been waiting for and praying for for a long time. I cannot wait to meet her!
