Hey, we are making progress!

Happy 3 weeks!  Tutu and onesie courtesy of crafty Julie:o)
Well, Blogger deleted this post I wrote yesterday, so I am sure I can't be as interesting and witty as I was the first time around. I can't beleive it has been 3 weeks since I brought my baby home!  Of course, there are frustrating moments, but we have navigated through them and have started to find our way!  Today, we went on our first "date" together...hitting up Lane Avenue to just walk around and window shop. Of course, once I went into Gymboree and it was 30% off the entire store, all bets were off.

Before you see the progress we have made in bathing (and not mine, mine has definitely taken a back seat since Larkyn came!  Seriously...), here is an updated picture of the nursery. We had to wait until the last minute to add her name so that no one would see it! FYI- anything "white" by Pottery Barn is NOT white. I knew this when registering, but didn't think it would be that big of a deal. It's not, if you are hanging frames or shelves, or something that is not next to a bright white crib. But, after carefully tracing around these letters, hanging the tracings, hanging the letters, and taking a step back, I hated them!  So, I had Matt immediately spray paint them white in the back yard. I know, PBK employees would shudder at the thought of their products being spray painted!

Rather than violent screaming, is that a smile before bath time!?

I don't know if it is the warm weather or her just getting used to baths, but this is MAJOR progress here!

So, of course we still have much to learn. I am still trying to figure out protocol when the pacifier falls out (run and pop it back in!?  Wait a few minutes? Don't put it in at all?), wondering when I should move her from our room to the crib, and wishing she could deal with her gas as easily as her father:o)

Hi there... I'm newly pregnant and entirely consumed with worry, and I just wanted to say your baby girl is BEAUTIFUL and your pregnancy blog on the bump well-written and wholly reassuring, as many of my first few weeks mirror yours, and now you have this gorgeous child. Thank you and congratulations.

Thank you for following us on our little journey! I was definitely a worrier up until I went into labor...then I was just focused and I guess it went away. Let me know if you have any questions I can answer. I think our girl is pretty cute too:o)

Oh and the picture of her in the bath...the reason she's so content...because she's peeing in the pool! Ha!
