beautiful Ellie made her debut, fashionably late, four weeks ago today.
can you believe it??!
though i can't believe it has already been four weeks...i also can't remember not having little Ellie as a part of my life. there are other things i can't remember:
what it was like to get a full night's sleep.
what it was like to be out in the real world...
what it was like to know what time of day it was for a reason other than the feeding schedule.
what it was like to think poopie diapers were gross.
what it felt like to put on a normal bra...among other things.
what it was like to stand still. or sit still for that matter.
how to put on mascara.
what it felt like to take a 10 minute shower.
what normal food tastes like...with the good spices...and chocolate...sigh.
what it was like to talk in a normal, human voice instead of a baby babble voice.
what our house looked like (well, the Chapman's house) without baby stuff...everywhere.
and, in spite of it all,
how i ever lived without her.
happy four weeks, sweet Ellie bear.
p.s. isn't she absolutely beautiful?
