Thank you...

I have been writing thank you notes lately to people who have really helped me these past few months. We have had meals delivered to our home when I couldn't stand up to cook. I had phone calls just to check on me. I am so grateful to everyone for helping our family.
There are a few thank you notes I need to send but I am not sure how to address them so I thought I would post them here:

Dear employees of Chic-fil-A,
Thank you for taking pity on me when you saw me order my lunch with a four year old tugging on my shirt and a newborn in the heaviest car seat known to man hanging off my arm. Since I couldn't even put my wallet back in my diaper bag you offered to carry my tray to my table and help me get the baby seat set up. Thank you for also refilling my lemonade while I nursed my crying baby as discreetly as possible in the corner. I will return often to get my fill of the #1 combo, no pickle.

Dear sweet little old lady at the Target dressing room,
Thanks for giving me a sweet knowing smile when I needed to use the dressing room to nurse my newborn. I REALLY needed to get my shopping done and Brynn decided she was hungry. Having that privacy was great.

Dear HGTV,
Thank you for showing
House Hunters at all hours of the night. Since I never know when Brynn will decide to eat I thought I would be at the mercy of Lifetime or the Home Shopping Network. While she is eating I can watch with a jealous heart a young family choose between 3 beautiful homes in upstate New York. Will they choose the house with a bonus room, the house with the big back yard, or the one with the big master suite? It doesn't matter. What matters is that I don't have to watch an awful movie with LeAnn Rhimes.

Dear Aunt Amy,
While I have to admit, I HATE the Barbie movie you sent to Caroline she loves it. And because she loves it she wants to watch it everyday. Because she watches it everyday I can close my eyes for a quick second. And I do mean a quick second. Thanks hon.

And thanks again to everyone who has helped us.

One month update...

Brynn had her one month appointment yesterday. Just to jog your memory here are her stats at 4 days old:
6 lbs. 9 oz.
19 1/2 inches

Four weeks later:
9 lbs. 10 oz.
21 inches

GO US! GO US! Those three am feedings are paying off. My girl is growing so big. Now if I can just get her into 3 month old clothes we will be set.

Of course I can't just leave you hanging without pictures so here you go.

This beautiful quilt is a gift from Connie Moorefield. I LOVE IT!

That is so close to a smile!

Caroline has been begging me for days now to feed Brynn. After I nursed Brynn, I pumped what was left and let Caroline sit in the rocker and feed her sister. Caroline was a pro. She is such a good big sister.
