Finishing this dish with lime zest and juice brightens its rich flavors.

Day Four

We are still settling in here at home. Harper had Jeff up most of the first part of the night and me up the rest. I didn't get back into bed until 6am and Keegan and Isabelle were up by 7am. So we're dragging a bit here. Jeff took the kids out on all kinds of errands. They both have colds with coughing so we have to keep them away from the baby. Hopefully they will be over them soon as they love to be near him. My parents came up today because my dad hadn't met the baby yet. Jeff prepared this awesome chicken corn chowder. Honestly I don't know where he finds the energy. I have been trying to stick to my goal of only taking care of myself and the baby in order to recover. But it is difficult because there is so much I would like to do and we are so used to doing things together as a family. I am taking one day at a time. Keegan loves Harper but has been regressing a bit since his arrival. I am guessing this is to be expected. And we are trying to stay patient with him while he adjusts. It is hard for me too as I am used to having all my free time to be with him. I try to tuck him in and participate in story time and give him hugs and attention as best I can right now.

Here is Harper on the day we brought him home. He had a checkup yesterday and is doing well. We go back in next week for a weight check.
