Two weeks ago yesterday, on August 12th at 3:48pm Riley Ann Barringer made her way into the world. She weighed 8lbs 10oz was 20.5″ long and had a head full of black hair. I am having a hard time accepting the fact that Baby Riley is already 15 days old, I just don’t know where the time has gone!!
I will say that the past two weeks have been the toughest and most trying two weeks of my life going from having never changed a diaper to having this little human to take care of 24/7 has been quite the adjustment. Not to mention my poor baby has a mild case of colic which has made things that much more challenging and while I’m not going to lie and say I’ve enjoyed living on little to no sleep, worrying myself sick over every little thing and feeling helpless when Riley is in pain and nothing I do eases the pain, but as as I sit here starring at my sweet baby sleeping beside me I can honestly say that the past two weeks have been the best two weeks of my life. Riley is truly a miracle from God and I am over joyed with all the love and happiness she has brought into my life. I wouldn’t trade all of the time I’ve spent getting to know my sweet baby for anything in the world; however I do wish the gas and stomach pains would go away, it breaks my heart seeing her cringe up in pain, so if anyone has any good tips please feel free to share 🙂
With all that has happened over the past two weeks I haven’t had the chance to really introduce Baby Riley, so I thought it would be a good time to share some of the photos from our stay at the hospital, as well as, some photos of Miss Riley at 4 days and 12 days!
I hope you enjoy!!
Here are some photos from the hospital that my husband, Jairus, and I took. As you can see Riley had quite a trip through the birth canal causing her to endure quite a bit of swelling in her face. She also has a busted blood vessel in her left eye, which you can’t see in the pictures, but unfortunately it’s still there 14 days later. They say it will go away, I just pray they are right!!
