Munchkin Picture Update

I haven't posted any pictures in a while, so I thought I better...

Here she is right after a bath. I was drying her hair with a towel and couldn't pass up this photo opportunity.

We tried a new position in the Sleepy Wrap and she fell asleep almost instantly. I just walked all over the house with her and she just slept the whole time.


Here she is in her "I love Dad" outfit, sporting a pair of her Baby Legs leggings.

All curled up with grandma...

Chillin with pops...

And here she is with me. I can't believe how big she is getting already!

I packed away all of her newborn stuff a couple of weeks ago. She'll be in the 3-6 mos stuff pretty soon.

She is still sleeping great in her swing through the night. She has even gone for some 5+ hour stretches. It's been great.

We took her to the park the other day and went for a walk. Then we took her to my sister's house and hung out there for a few hours and had dinner. It was so nice to get out of the house for an entire evening. She did great at my sister's. It was a good place to start because she has the same swing and all sorts of baby stuff since her due date was yesterday. Any day now, she will have a new cousin! Last night we went for a quick trip to Walmart. Tonight we took her to Sam's (a shopping club) and then to Babies-r-us. She did so good. She pretty much slept the entire time, except for about 20 minutes in Sam's when she just stared, wide-eyed and looked around at everything. I was so relieved.

So we are finally getting out there. It feels good to be doing things again. Saturday night my mom is going to come over and hang out with her while we go see a movie. She will be giving her a bottle so hopefully everything will go well. Joe tried to give her one on Wednesday when I went to my doctor's appointment, but it didn't go very well. She drank about an ounce and a half, but that was about it. I think Joe was just really nervous and not sure what to do. So I think it was more him then her. I think it might be better for her to start out with my mom and then Joe can try again. We'll see.

Tomorrow someone is coming to look at our house at 9:30 am. This sucks cuz we are usually just getting out of bed at that time. So we'll be getting up early and heading over to my sister's house for a little while. Someone came out and looked at the house last night too. They said they really liked the house, but they didn't like the lot. I wish they would have said why. Maybe because we live at the bottom of a HUGE hill and the first thing that everyone thinks when driving down it is "what the hell happens when there is ice?". Well, you call in sick. Obviously.

What adorable pictures! The one with the towel dried hair is so cute!

It's sad that not everyone has the guts to live at the bottom of a big hill.

She has the best little cheeks. I'd kiss her all the time. Oh my gosh, she's so perfect.
