Quick Update

I thought I'd do a quick update for you! Precious M (that will be her name on the blog, since I will not be disclosing information on the blog) came home with us on Wednesday and is absolutely beautiful and perfect! We are so glad to have her at our home for a while! She has enough hair for bows, so that has been super fun for me! I'm in love! She is the most precious and tiny little one! She sleeps most of the time, but we're still working on figuring out her little timeline!

We definitely feel like new parents! M is only 4 weeks old (as of yesterday), so we are working on getting a schedule and figuring out everything. A HUGE thanks to my husband for staying up with M the past 2 nights to change, feed and diaper her so I could get some rest. (I went to the doc on Monday, not feeling well (sore throat, etc.) and was told I had a virus, no big deal. So, by Tuesday afternoon I was feeling much better and Wednesday, I felt great, but started getting laryngitis. After getting a combination of maybe 3 hours of sleep for the whole night and then going back to school to teach, I started having a spiral down hill by Thursday night, which led me to go back to the doctor on Friday (thank you, urgent care clinic!!) to reveal that I now had an upper respiratory infection and last night that led into an ear infection and of course, after taking tons of prescriptions and over the counter meds all week, I felt so sick at my stomach.) I say all that to say, that my VERY precious and patient husband has sacrificed all of his sleep for the past 2 days for me and M. He is such a wonderful husband and "father"!! Thanks, Josh!!! I feel much better today, thankfully! So, I owe Josh big time! If you see Josh in the next few days, you'll know why he's tired, it's because he has been so incredibly selfless!
Oh yes, and thanks to my mom for the wonderful homecooked meal last night (italian tomato chicken, red beans and rice, cornbread, green beans, salad, strawberries and cherry cheesecake) was perfect!!!!

Josh is sleeping on the couch with M on the bouncy seat asleep next to him, so I'm going to see if I can snag a quick shower before they both wake up!

Aubrey and Josh--
Congratulations on being given a precious baby to love. You have been blessed and sweet little M has been blessed to have been placed in the care of two awesome Christian people. You're already great parents!
Aubrey, hope you feel much better soon. I've had that crud for two weeks now and don't know how I'd teach and take care of a baby. Thank goodness for Josh!
I love you both and am keeping the three of you in my prayers.
Can't wait to hold her.

Love, Great Aunt Fernie
