Sleep? What is that?!

Oh my goodness...for as perfect as she was during her first 2 weeks of life, our world has been turned upside down in the last week and a half! She has been super gassy and fussy at night. We've had 2 nights of her not going down until 4 am. Needless to say, we are struggling.

Speaking of, she is fussy now and I need to feed her. More to come...

Her umbilical cord is gone!

For as much as I wanted it to fall off, I'm a little sad. It's her first little step in growing up! Cliff was changing her diaper on Friday (10/10) and noticed that it was ready to come off. It was hanging be a thread and as he was looking at it, it came off. She slept right through it...such a good baby! Her little belly button is just too cute now!

She was 2 weeks old yesterday...can you believe it!? I cannot. She is gaining weight and filling out and changing each day. Did I post anything about her first drs appt? Can't remember, but if I didn't...she gained a whole pound during her first week at home! She had lost to 7lb 2 oz in the hospital and weighed 8 lb 2 oz at the dr last Wednesday (11 days old).

Papa Rod is here today for a visit, so I'm getting caught up on some housework. I'm obviously busy at it now...can you tell?! :-) I'm finally starting to feel much more human, so if you'd like to come for a visit, let me know. My only request is that you are healthy (please don't bring any flu bugs in my house) and you're not around any sick people before you come over. If your family is sick or has been sick me a favor and just wait. I'd really like to make it through the flu/RSV season with nothing major. I was a basket case to bring home a healthy baby. I can't imagine what I'll be like the first time she is sick!

Gotta get some work done around soon!

Exhausted, but she is definately worth it!

Here are a few pics over the last few days. We are all 3 pretty exhausted. She is a beautiful baby and is as perfect as I could have asked for. She only cries when she is hungry and luckily, I've been able to take care of that for her. She is such a dream! Cliff started back to work yesterday and that was a bit hard for me. He is off work today though, so I'm enjoying his company. He is napping with AnnaJo and I thought I'd check some email and get these pics posted. They are both from my cell phone, so not as great quality as normal. I am still planning on organizing some of the other pics to post as well. Not enough time in the day anymore. I guess I'll get used to it! The consensus is that she looks like her Daddy! What do you think? I was a little hurt at first...with the terrible labor and scary pregnancy, you'd think I could have a baby that resembled me. I think she is perfect, I think her Daddy is pretty good looking, so I don't have much to be concerned about.
