Deep breaths

Well, my parents just left.

We're officially on our own.

You'll be fine! You're not supposed to have all the answers, and Alli doesn't know that you're not the greatest. You're concerned, so you won't disappoint her.

TRaining Wheels OFF!!! C'mon, take it easy. If there's one thing YOU are, it's the mothering kind. You'll be great. I'm jealous of the kid!

Janice said...

Good luck! You'll be great!

You'll do great! Don't worry!

LeslieAnn said...

Aww, you can do it! And you have Jerry to help. I bet you two will be great! How has your little sweet pea been?

Marina said...

Just invite Jerry's parents over for a week. Then my parents. Then Toby's parents. Etc. Before you know it she'll be moving out and you'll barely have done any work yourself!

That's what I'd do if I had kids.

Wendy said...

Take a few deep breaths. Everything will be fine.

Shalini said...

Best of luck! I know you both can do it. Just be there for each other, and let Toby do all the diapers. :)

Seriously you all will do great!

Just get to sleep when she goes to sleep. best advice that's hard to follow.

As my dad said when I had my first son, "they bounce, don't stress over it."

Come on, you guys! You're going to be fine. Have some faith in yourselves. I *know* you BOTH can do this. You two have what it takes to parent. And you BOTH have enough love and patience to get through just about anything. So don't worry so much. Just enjoy your little one and take things one day at a time! *hugs* <3

How is Toby getting on with the newbie? Sophia refused to acknowledge Ian for quite some time. Not until food started falling from heaven did she think he might be a good guy.
Don't worry you will be fine with your little one and you can always call people for advice if you get stuck.

Good Luck! I am sure you guys will be fine.

I think you and Jerry are naturals. Looks like Alli is a natural, too. She looks so easy-going in her photos - I love this latest one - that facial expression belongs on someone much wiser than a few-days-old babe.

Deep breath - one moment at a time...

Kelly and Jerry, You both are GREAT parents and all you have to do is remember when you were young and just about everything you learned to do was all about "Keeping It Between The Lines". such as driving a car and coloring in a coloring book and so on. Well, this is kind of like that. You will be fine, Just Keep It Between The Lines. God Bless You.

Belated congratulations are in order... I was on vacation (left on the 15th) and just finished catching up on the news! So glad to hear that she's finally OUT and you get to see her face! What a cute little "turkey" you've got there.

And try not to stress out, you'll catch on. This is one of life's steepest learning curves... tough and bewildering at the beginning but you'll be a pro in no time. :)

Good luck! I can't say I've been there because I haven't.,. But you love her and you'll be just fine. =)
