Three Weeks Old

Here's a little update on Miss Keira and our new normal life!

Keira found her thumb on the 11th. It is the cutest thing to see her suck on it. I am trying ot teach her the "right" way to suck on it, with her other fingers folded down. :) I haven't gotten a picture of it yet, but hopefully I will soon. She is constantly eating her hands, so as long as the camera is ready it shouldn't be a problem getting it! She aslo had her first bath that night. It was a little traumatic, but she survived. :)

Stephen went back to work on the 16th. It's been tough not having him here to help, but we have to get used to it! My mom came and stayed from the 17th to the 22nd. It was nice to have someone to pass Keira off to so that we could get a little more sleep in the morning! We went out to eat for lunch on the 19th and 20th and she did great both times.

On the 19th, cousins Nathan and Madelyn came to visit. The girls got to spend some time together and we took some pictures of their size difference. Keira also went up to the school to meet the other teachers. She did a great job.

On the 20th, her cord fell off. Thank goodness! So now she has a very cute little belly button. I am excited about giving her a real bath soon now that it is gone.

On the 22nd, Keira got to meet my childhood friend Alyssa and her fiance John.

The 22nd was also our 5th Anniversary. We spent the evening at the house just the three of us. Keira was a little fussy, but we made it.

She is getting so big! Everyday she looks different to me. Yesterday she finally wore something other than a gerber onesie. That has been all that would fit her for the past 3 weeks. Seeing her in the sleepers makes her look little again, which I love! I want her to get bigger so that she is doing more, but don't want her to get too big too fast.

Here are a few pictures of her lately. Enjoy!!
