our baby is here!

i have a two week old baby girl? WHAT?!?

so life has changed quite a bit lately. baby cook finally arrived in the package of a 7 lbs 11 oz. baby girl. caroline elizabeth. she is little and squirmy and soft. she pretty much just cries, poops, sleeps and looks around, but she's still perfect. our perfect little girl that i've been waiting to arrive for 9 long months. sometimes i still can't believe she's here. i still can't believe that i am a mommy and shaun is a daddy. and that we are now responsible for raising a daughter.

there have been quite a few adjustments around the cook house. our living room now looks like a daycare. pacis and blankets laying around. a pack n play and swing have been squeezed into one corner. and baby clothes like socks and pants are in the strangest places. but it all seems very normal for some reason. it's seems like this is the way things have always been.

kona has adjusted perfectly. i couldn't been happier about the way he has welcomes and adjusted to the new little cries and squawks that come out of caroline. i can tell that when she gets really upset he worries about her. he'll come and give me a look like "is she ok?" but mostly he just lays around her pack n play or at my feet when i'm holding her. we have made an effort to still love on him so he doesn't feel left out. and he has been great on the few walks we have been about to go on.

and shaun and i are adjusting together. it hasn't been easy, but because we are working together, it really hasn't been that hard. it's been really nice having him at home. he is being as helpful as possible and i'm so thankful for all he has done. we are learning more about each other and what we are capable of as couple. i knew he would be amazing, and i'm so thankful that we are doing this together. it's would be near impossible without him.

so now what? i kind of think that each morning when i wake up. what will today bring, because so far almost every day has been different. i guess we'll just wait and see...
