First day alone with the munchkin. So far, she's eaten and is trying to sleep. I managed to pump, stuff in some toast and check my email. I am going to try and sleep again while she is, I just need to check on her really quickly here. Anyone else remember their first day of staying alone with the baby? Scary. Shiver.

I remember standing at the door and sobbing the day my mom left and I was home alone with Harper for the first time. You'll be amazed at how quickly you realize you can do it!

Yes, I do remember - it was very scary. The first time i was alone with my daughter she choked and turn blue. I had to use the sucker thing to get some gunk out of her throat so she could start breathing again. I remember yelling at my husband and mother when they returned - "You guys leave me alone for five minutes and I have to save her life." The good news is that is the last time that EVER happened.

I remember, too. (Doubt any mom could forget).

But treasure the time. I know you've heard it before, but it goes SO fast.

One day you're changing diapers and nursing and snuggling, the next day they're teenagers.

All the time in between is just GONE.

Can't wait to see more pictures. She's precious.
