More Pictures

We are still absolutely in love with our little girl even though she can be difficult sometimes. She has a hard time going to sleep. She will work herself up into a fit before we can get her calmed down enough to close her eyes and just when we think she is almost out she will wake up again and start the whole process over. We have been lucky though, she sleeps for long stretches at night (4-6 hours at a time) so I guess the frustration of getting her to sleep pays off because we are able to sleep longer. Meghan, I hope you are right about the 5 week adjustment period. I don't know how people leave the house with newborns, I can barely get anything done and I have Josh to help me. I don't know how single parents do it.
Josh is such a proud daddy and he has the magic touch to calm her down-especially when I am getting frustrated.
She is not quite as sweet smelling as we would have hoped. I never knew that baby's could have such smelly gas!

She is pretty good at lifting her head up already when we give her tummy time. She can hold it up for around 10 seconds already.

This is her favorite position. She is a little escape artist with her hands. She usually has one or both out before we are even finished swaddling her. Luckily she still sleeps okay even when she escapes her swaddle.

She's Here

Ember Leigh Florie was born on Thursday, September 17th at 7:12 p.m. She weighs 8 lbs 10 oz
and is 19 1/4 inches long. She has a full head of hair already and has dark blue eyes that will probably turn brown. She is absolutely perfect in every way and we are absolutely in love with her already. I will post more pictures later.

Still Here...

No, I am not hiding anything. No baby yet. I guess I will have to go to work again tomorrow. I was hoping to be done. I decided not to post a picture because I look the same as I did last week and I am kind of protesting the fact that I haven't had the baby yet. My doctor thinks the baby is close to 8 lbs so there isn't any concern about her being too large. Unless she decides to come in the next couple of days, I am going to be induced on Thursday. Hopefully she will make her big debut before then. We will see though.

39 Weeks

I am really hoping that this is the last picture of me that I have to post. Hopefully you will get much cuter pictures by next week. I am getting impatient for her to get here. I think that it is more boredom than anything. I am all ready so whenever she decides to come would be great.
