Annie's 1st Week Home

It's a girl!! Our sweet Annie was born on June 24, 2009 at 3:04 pm. She weighed 7lbs 7.8oz and was 21" long. She is just perfect!

On her way home from the hospital. She loves riding in the car.

Exhausted after her first visit to Dr. Harris on June 30th. She had a great check up and now weighs 7lbs 8.4oz. She is growing everday!!

On Thursday Laura Hunter from Moms on Call came to the house to teach us all the basics of feeding, bathing, sleeping and settling little Annie into a daily routine. We learned the perfect swaddle (see above pic), which with the sound machine is the key to getting her to sleep. Annie loves her new routine and is truly an angel. We put her to bed at 10:00 and she only wakes up once at 2:00 to eat and then sleeps until about 6:30. Mom and Dad are loving their sleep too!!
Check out Laura's website She is the baby whisperer and a life saver for new parents!

Annie's first bath

Annie participated in her first neighborhood 4th of July parade on Saturday. The fire engine sirens kind of scared her but all in all she loved meeting all the neighbors and strolling in the parade.

Being a mom is much more time consuming than I ever imagined and some how the days just fly by! Please forgive for me taking so long to update the blog :)!
