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.
