Meet Daddy's Girl.
Boo was definitely a mommy's girl, but this little one is a daddy's girl. And she has her daddy's red hair, so that's lots of fun. I hope she keeps it. :)
This precious little baby joined our family a month early, and she certainly is tiny. She was only 4 lb 10 oz at birth. (It was really funny--while she was waiting in the hospital nursery to be checked by the doctor, right next to her was a 10 lb newborn...just in case we didn't realize how very tiny she was.) If you remember from this post, she was small for how far along in the pregnancy we were, and we never did find out why. So we were worried about her, and when she came early, we expected some time in the NICU. But she's a healthy little squirt. No NICU, no breathing problems (very common for 36 week babies, as I understand it), no jaundice, even. (Well, it wasn't bad enough to need light therapy, anyways.)
So we've been adjusting to having two (healthy!) little ones. (I have kids now--as in plural. Weird.) But we love it. Boo is a great big sister; she loves to have tummy time with the baby. ("Let's have a floor party!") She goes and gets pacifiers, diapers, burp clothes--whatever we need. Sometimes she's a little more clingy than before, but really, Boo is adjusting amazingly.
My blogging is going to continue being sporadic at least until Daddy's Girl starts taking regular not-needing-to-be-held naps, but you'll see me every now and again.
And the rest of the time, we'll just be enjoying our little baby.
