A short update

Things are going well here with the new addition. She's just perfect!! She had her first doctor's visit and she got a clean bill of health. My sweetie and I are very slowly adjusting to being parents. It's so weird that we're parents!! Monday my sweetie has to go back to work and I'm definitely not looking forward to that. It's been so nice having him home all week. But my parents are coming into town to help out for the next week so I'm not on my own yet. I'm recovering pretty well from the surgery, I'm up and about much more than I thought I would be. I thought I'd be laid out on the couch for at least a week, but I've been able to get around and up and down the stairs with very few problems. Now, if only I could get out of bed easily then I'd be all set. Stay tuned for the official birth story, until then, here's a picture from her first bath:

Be careful and don't overdo the up and down the steps stuff. I'm glad your parents are coming. I could never have gotten thru the first week with both of my babes without my mother there to help!

That was the one and only recollection I have of being in extreme pain after my c-section. I took a nap while my daughter slept and had to get up out of the bed. Oh my god - I was so stiff and sore. I wanted to scream! You never realize how much you use those abdominal muscles!

That's such a cute little smooshie face!!!! I can't wait to meet her! In the mean time, keep me supplied with lots and lots of pix. I really think she looks a lot like Devin.... Does she look like Dev in real life, or is it just the pix?
