Wow - I can't believe it's been a month (and a day) since Walker was born!
Things are going great on the home front. The greatest challenge lately has been nursing. He nurses great at night only up once between 9pm & 7am - but during the day is another story - so I have been switching back and forth between me and the bottle just to give it a try.
My sweet friend Dana came to visit last Wednesday through Friday! I have known her since...

While she was here she taught me a few things, like how to:
- use baby powder on the booty
- saline and syringe the little nose
- use the diaper genie instead of making 14 trips to the trash can
We had a blast. Laughed a ton - and stayed up way too late! She left her 2 girls at home with the hubby (everyone survived) and drove over from GA with one bun in the oven (3rd girl due Christmas Eve)
I don't think I've ever appreciated good friends as much as I do now. Since Walker arrived I have seen people really pour out to support us, calling to check in, bringing meals, and just offering to come over and hold him, do a load of laundry and even clean the kitchen. Not that it's all about "doing" things, but it truly has been a blessing! Not sure if I'll ever get to all the thank you notes - guess I could be doing that now huh?
Hopefully it won't be so long between posts...I think we're getting the hang of this!
