3 weeks old tomorrow.

Havent been online this week because 1) Mike has been monopolizing the computer, and 2) we caught a virus and had to wipe clean the entire hard drive, and 3) Im simply too tired.

Aliah is doing fine. Our miracle baby is still growing like crazy! On Monday she weighed 9lbs 3.5 oz, and by Thursday she was 9 lbs 12 oz! She'll be hitting ten pounds any day now!

Hannah has been a handful these last 2.5 weeks. One minute shes a perfect angel, very helpful and compliant. But watch out, the next minute she could be screaming her head off, throwing toys and hitting/kicking everything within reach. This also creates a lot of mommy-guilt for me. I really really hate seeing her so sad! Bedtime is the worst.

My MOPS friends have been a huge help! They've brought us dinner all this week and have lined up to bring more meals next week too! It has been SUCH a relief to not have to cook when Im sleep-deprived, running on 3 or 4 hours of sleep, and nursing a newborn around the clock. What a neat blessing!

Mike has one more week until he has to return to work. Im really afraid of how I will cope everyday when he is back to working twelve hours shifts all the time. I am at high risk for developing PPD. Fortunately my in-laws and my own parents will be visiting at the end of the month, so I will have a few extra hands. Still, I am worried....

{{HUGS}} Sorry about the virus! That stinks!

Not much else I can say except to give you hugs... I don't have any Earth-kids yet but you can feel free to vent on me anytime. {{HUGS}}

Will be praying. I was scared when Andrew went back and Kendra's birth rocked Logan's world. But hang in there.
