Welcome to the World!!

It has been a long time since I have posted. First our computers crashed and then time just got away from me. And then....Evie was born!! Yes, we are now a family of four!!

Welcome to the family, Evelyn Boyd Warwick "Evie"

Born March 7, 2010 at 3:45am weighting 9 pounds.

these are some pics from our newborn session with Becky Abernathy (the same photographer that took all of Jack's pics).

things have been crazy since becoming a family or 4. It is amazing how adding one little baby can change a family so much. I never knew how easy we had it with just Jack. We are learning a lot about ourselves. Since being in this world (6 weeks now) Evie has been put on medicine for acid reflux, a thicker formula due to the reflux and medicine for constipation. How is it that my child with a CHD never had any feeding issues and would eat any time a bottle was put in front of him, but my child who is completely health has every eating/pooping issue I know? Funny how things work!! I know that God will only give you what you can handle, but with the lack of sleep and trying to keep up with Jack at 21 months...there are days that I don't think I can handle it!

I, also, don't know if any other people with more then one child has experienced this but I am having a hard time sharing my love between two children. I don't know if it is because Jack has his heart defect and I feel an extra special attachment to him and his precious life or because Evie is in the "lump" stage (as one of my friends calls the newborn stage), but it is hard for me right now. I hope that doesn't make me a terrible person. She did finally smile yesterday, and that helps melt my heart!!!

Well, I have a lot more to report on, but I have to go to sleep since she will be up in a couple of hours. I promise to update again...and not wait a couple of months.
