Baby Jane!

Here are some more pictures of baby Jane that we took yesterday - when she was four days old! She's already five days old! That's so crazy. We are doing well and somewhat falling into a routine. This little one is truly the light of my life and I love her so much. Okay, I can't go on (even though I could) because I will sit here and weep for joy rather than type (and typing time is limited)!

Since we left the hospital after 24 hours, we took her to the pediatrician the next day and everything checked out just fine! She is lovely and alert with those big blue eyes at times and she sleeps wonderfully sound at others. I am so grateful that my mom is here helping out. She is taking care of so much around the house while I rest and feed Jane, and Doug is of course wonderful with her. That won't come as a surprise to anyone that has seen him around children. He is already a great father - he got a good start by first being one on Father's Day! Best Father's Day gift ever!
This one is my favorite of the ones we took (thanks for the dress, Lyndsey!):
So tiny! And yes, there's an audience watching in the background. I think the dogs are getting used to her. Cosmo is indifferent, Sherman tried to lick her and can sit right next to her without a problem, and Maggie is, well, curious. Very curious. They have officially been demoted to "pets" in my mind and not babies.

Sherman's dance

So, maybe this will work. It always takes so stinkin' long to upload videos, and it's never worked before. Obviously the last test didn't work. Let's try again. This is, hopefully, a video of Sherman "dancing." Pretty darn cute!

just a test

This is a test...will this post as a video? Is Emily smart enough to figure this out? We shall see...

Baby Showers!

I had a couple wonderful showers over the last couple months! These pictures are from a shower given by Tera, Jen, and Noel here in Leander. We played some really fun games - Noel put certain foods in diapers that resemble what I might soon find in Jane's diapers, and then we had to guess the food! It was disgusting and hilarious at the same time. I'm sure everyone would dislike me putting pictures of them on the blog, and you definitely don't need a million of me, so I will stick with the wonderful decorations! :)

Beautiful - and useful - diaper wreath made by Tera

Noel has an undiscovered talent - look at this gorgeous cake!
I ate a TON! And then I was glad that Jen took most the leftovers, because I went to her house the next day and ate more of it for lunch!
