Scenes From A Blissful House



Whew!  Where has the time gone?  It's been almost a whole month since I last posted.  And much has happened since then as most of you know.


I'm enjoying my new little man so much - he has brought so much joy to this house already and it feels like he has always been here.  


I was able to stay in the hospital for 5 days - nice break for me after a C-section.  Cole was 3 weeks early and almost 8 lbs!  Because of possible complications, I was under general anesthesia and not awake for the delivery.  Also, Rich was not permitted in the room under these circumstances so he missed out too.... :(




So much love...




Big sister Mallory in the hospital with her new baby brother...




Big sister Amy - could her smile be any bigger???




Coming home...




Settling in...










Mommy wearing makeup again!!




Big thanks to Jenn from Munchkinland Designs for designing my new blog header.  I highly recommend Jenn for her skills and her prices!  


Have a wonderful weekend!
xoxo,
Kim

Congratulations on your beautiful baby boy. It looks like you have a lot of help! I wonder if the baby knows he has 3 mommies! What a fun time for your family. My little brother was born when my brother and I were 10 and11 years old and my Mom said it was great having a lot of extra hands around!

So good to hear from you again, Kim. I've thought about you often and hoped all was going well and everyone was adjusting to baby Cole. He is so precious. You look great, and your family looks so cute with Cole. We had our little granddaughter Jan. 30. I have pics of her on my post dated 2/1/11. We are back having a visit this weekend. She is so adorable. Babies are so wonderful, and then they grow up into these even more wonderful people. Congratulations again.
