Anna wore one of her outfits from cousin Claire to church today. And her boots were from Grandma Harvey. She looked very cute, as always!

This last week, I have felt like Anna is growing in leaps and bounds. I love her little personality she is developing. She is sleeping much better at night now, as well, which gives her more awake time in the day time. I also think her hair is turning more and more red. We'll see if she develops a "red head" personality.
Everyday we have tried to have some tummy time.
She loves spending time with her daddy! I love watching them together!

Grandma Adams came today! Anna loves to have her grandmas around! Mommy and daddy are excited to have her here too! We went to Red Robin tonight for dinner and then came home and grandma gave Anna a bath.
Last night Anna slept better than she has since last Saturday. We were very grateful for a little more sleep and less screaming!
She did scream a little in the morning though when we tried to take her picture. She wasn't too happy. This outfit was cousin Claire's outfit.
Daddy gave her a pep talk, and she stopped screaming, but refused to stay awake for the photos.

Every night daddy has been reading from the Bible to Anna. Anna loves spending time with her dad. We wish he was home all day long!
We have been giving Anna a bath in the evenings. She hasn't really liked them so far. She is usually pretty content when it is over.
Anna wore this outfit to go visit daddy at work while I had Bible study.
This is how she is in the morning after a long night of screaming and staying up. It's a good thing she is so cute!

I can’t believe Anna is already 12 days old! Time has flown by so fast. Anna looks older everyday! We have loved watching her grow and develop her little personality. Our little angel has been such an easy baby, so far. We really feel pretty lucky. She has definitely had her moments, but for the most part, she is very patient and tender hearted! Nights have been relatively easy, as well, minus the whole getting up for feedings thing. Last night was the first night since we were in the hospital that she really didn’t sleep the best. And I am pretty sure last night was because I ate chocolate pretty late. I forgot that I have to watch what I eat, for her! I guess it will help me take off the extra weight though.
Today my mom leaves to go back home to Oregon. She will greatly be missed! She was very helpful and so giving while she was here! And the same with my dad and sister! We really do feel so blessed to have such a wonderful and supportive family, on both sides! Reed’s mom moves in this Friday! We are excited to have her here, as well! Cindy and Phil were already here for a few days, but didn’t get to spend as much time with Anna. This time, Cindy will! We wish Phil could come too, but understand the whole job thing.
Speaking of which, Reed went back to work last week. He only went in for a few hours each day though. It has been SO nice to have him home! Tomorrow is when he goes back for full days! It will be very hard to have him gone! Tomorrow is also my first day on my own with Anna. I am not too worried, but a little anxious to be on my own. Reed is leaving early to give plasma and then has a late meeting which will put him home a lot later than usual. It will be my first test of if I will be able to pull off this whole mom thing. I plan to sleep most of the time Anna is sleeping- something I really haven’t mastered yet.
Here are some of the pictures that we have taken that I really love. Of course a lot of them have already been posted on facebook, or have been circulating around. But they are still really cute! Hopefully I’ll get better and this blog thing, now that we have Anna. I know that many family and friends are wanting to watch as our little girl grows up.

Well, she's here! Tuesday, Jan 5 we went to the doctor and found out that Audrey wasn't very dilated. We decided to go ahead with a two-step dilation process starting that night. At 2:30am Audrey's water broke, and the rest of the night people were in and out of the room. She started pushing around 12:00 noon and Anna was born at 1:28pm on January 6. She weighed 7lbs 7oz and was 20 inches long. She has been a very good girl, and has only really cried when people messed with her (which, of course is often...they have to make sure she's clean and perfect and all that stuff. Well, we're exhausted, so this won't be a long post. I do just have to say that seeing a baby born is one of the most wonderful, beautiful, tiring things I have ever seen!
Oh yeah, what you all really want...a pic!!
