First Day Home, Bath, and Playtime

Hello everyone! I thought you might need an Emma fix, so I am posting while she is napping. Her first day home was so special to us. We enjoyed loving on her and making sure she knows we are here to stay. Bottle time has been difficult for her. She started taking it without crying yesterday afternoon. Nighttime is also hard and we are doing our best to console her. She is still trying to get her sleep routine figured out. When she woke up yesterday around 11:30, she took a 30 minute nap in the carrier and then didn't go back down until last night. She was up and down last night but we are working on establishing a routine. Did I mention we just love her??? She is the sweetest little girl and has such a cute personality. She laughed out loud today for the first time as mommy was blowing on her tummy. She also liked her bath after she got used to it. She splashed and giggled. I will try to post a video later. Here are a few pictures from yesterday and today. She loves her toys.
