My family just left an hour ago to head back home and already my heart aches because I miss them so much.
The past 3 weeks have been wonderful for Paul and I. We love having all of the family together- especially when we celebrated the birth of our first child.
My mom made sure I didn't do anything in order to heal. My parents did so much around the house; laundry, dishes, fixing odds and ends, etc. There is no way Paul and I could pay them back for everything they did. I barely even changed a diaper! Mom even came with me a couple times to clean Earl's house.
Some days I couldn't help but clean something just to feel useful, and I have realized just how easy it is to over do it.. which is why I was given strict instructions by my mother that no matter how great I feel- don't over do it!
And so.. life really begins..
I look over at my sleeping daughter and I feel comfort knowing that Paul and I will do just fine on our own.. the company was just nice. :)
