Time flies when your a new Mom & Dad

I can't believe Ayla is over a month now... It's crazy how fast time flies when you have bottles to wash and diapers to change. It's funny how everyone tells you to enjoy it because before you know it they will be walking then talking then off to school etc.. I am now believe it! Everything has been going great! With the exception of the lack of sleep. Alya seems to be quite a night owl being that she is wide awake from the hours of 10:00 PM to 3:00 AM. She does however sleeps most of the day which is actually a good thing considering I am not really on maternity leave lol.. But being that I work for myself I have the flexibility to work when I get a spare min here and there which works out awesome. I had my first Baby shower this past weekend which was really fun. I never ever imagined that I would have a baby shower.. It was finally a shower I got to go to and did not dread going because I would be the only one there without a baby to talk about or didn't have to answer the question "So when are you going to have a baby". What a relief that was and pure enjoyment. :) So far we have had two home visits and one to go! Then we get to finally finalize our adoption. The state of FL requires three home visits and a certain amount of days before you can finalize. Don't get me wrong she is all ours but as of now we are only labeled her legal guardians in the eyes of the law.
Justin is now back to work and trying to get enough sleep to function. He has told me many times before we had Ayla "I don't need sleep" lol.. I know call him a liar! hehe.. But really overall we have realized that we can actually function quite well on very little sleep funny how that works out. :) Here are a few photos of Ayla that we have taken. I hope to try at least to blog once every two weeks if time allows for those of you who read my rants and raves and run on sentences oh and not forget my famous typos lol.
