It's Christmas Eve!

I can't believe it's Christmas Eve and Matt, Lilly, Midas and I are all snuggled up in the living room (watching "What About Bob" hehe). We are a family of 3 and life is good!

I'm still amazed by how different this homecoming has been compared to the first time. Matt and I feel like we were so much more prepared the second time and were able to relax and be calm about the transition. We think the dog and the baby sensed our tension the first time, but this time, it's all good!

Last night we gave Lilly her first sponge bath, fed her and started the classic Winnie the Pooh story with her. Sure, she had no idea what Daddy was reading to her (shoot, even he and I were confused-- A.A. Milne's writing is kind of nuts and doesn't make much sense most of the time) but it was nice to have that down time before bed and to start a tradition-- and to smell her fuzzy, clean hair while she filled her belly in bed. We were all so calm and relaxed... Lilly never cried once all night and I couldn't get over how EASY the night went. Every time I got back in bed, Matt and I snuggled up to the sound of her little noises and giggled at how darn cute she is. He told me Lilly is lucky to have me for a Mommy... but I feel like the luckiest mommy in the world to have her as my daughter. I would do anything for her.
