Okay, okay, more photos!

Okay, you get your wish; more photos! Here they are.

As far as our Talley family, we are doing just fine. Some days are harder than others, but every day we are learning more and more. Once we got the whole breastfeeding thing down, we found that Eli wanted to eat ALL the time. For four or five hours at a time! Then we figured out that maybe he wasn't hungry, he just likes the attention from his mommy. But his mommy started getting a little sick and tired of it. So today he was strongly encouraged to take a pacifier. And guess what--it worked! Hopefully this progress will keep up.

We owe a big thanks to our parents. Although we have been struggling to learn about how to best take care of Eli's needs, they have been patient, understanding, and very generous, bringing us whatever we need every day and waiting patiently for their turn to hold him. Although we know they think that they haven't done much, they have been a huge help and we couldn't have made it through the first week without them. Thank you, thank you, thank you! We love you.
