|Five-day-old Linna, pretty in pink|
Grandma Saigh (AKA "MeMa") stayed with us the first couple nights when we were home from the hospital. It was so nice to have an extra set of hands for when I wanted to shower, rest, etc. Grandma Specken (AKA "NaNa" or "Grandma Beanie") lives just a few miles away, so she, Grandpa Specken, and Auntie Paige have been stopping by almost every day to make dinner, help out, or just spend time with little "Ling Ling". My dad texts me every day asking how his little girl is doing. So sweet!

|Linna and Daddy|
Right now, Linna eats about every three hours, and she eats about 3 oz. each feeding. I'm pumping every three hours or so, and seriously, if I were a cow, I would make Kemps a LOT of money! Linna is very well-fed, and I've even started to freeze some of my breast milk (that's how much I have). I nurse Linna in the morning (our naked feeding time), and then bottle feed her throughout the day. This way, AJ and other people can feed her too. She's also taking a nuk, so there's no nipple confusion.
|I love this little face!|
I think one of the most amazing parts about having a baby, is watching my husband become a dad. AJ is the BEST daddy a little girl could ask for! I love watching AJ rush in the door when he comes home from work, and walk straight over to Linna to scoop her up from whoever is holding her. Linna knows his voice and seems totally relaxed when her daddy is talking to her. Having a baby has made me fall in love with my hubby all over again, and I cry out of pure joy when I see the two of them together! Time to go spend some time with my lil' lady:)
