Week One

We've had fun at home this week with Callie. Philip went back to work on Wednesday, so it's been me, baby, and my mom for the past few days. There's been a lot of typical eating, sleeping, pooping, holding, crying, etc., etc. I love all of it! She's just so tiny and precious.

Actually, she's so tiny that we had to go to the Carter's outlet yesterday to get her some newborn outfits. She has a ton of 0-3 month stuff, but I didn't get much newborn clothing because the doctor kept saying she was going to be pretty big. The day before I was induced, she estimated 8 1/2 - 9 lbs. Ha! It was nice to get out of the house and out into the world. Caroline slept the whole time, which was great. And now we have lots of cute stuff to dress her in! There will be no shortage of photos of this little girl. :)

In the pics above, she is wearing one of her new outfits. I was glad when I saw they had their winter stuff in; it's really what she needs since we keep our house pretty cool. Philip was having fun mimicking her facial expressions...silly Daddy!

My mom is headed home today. We'll miss you, Mimi! It has been WONDERFUL having help around the house this week. She was going to stay through the weekend, but I am feeling great and we thought it's be nice to have a weekend with just our little family. The remaining weekends in August will be full of family coming to visit and meet our precious baby girl! Besides, she has to get home and pack since she and Dad will be moving to Anniston soon...yea for having grandparents close by!

Ellie and Maggie have done really well with the baby. Actually, Ellie thinks that Callie is hers. She is very protective of and concerned about her. She needs to know where she is at all times, and comes to get me if Callie is crying. I'm glad that transition has been a smooth one; I was worried about how our spoiled dogs would react to having her here!

Caroline has the longest fingers and longest, skinniest feet I have ever seen on a newborn. I guess she is going to take after her momma in that department! At least I already know where to special order shoes and long pants from. :)

So cute! Carolina is beautiful! I love that she and the poodle are instant comrads! I didn't know your parents were moving to Anniston. That's awesome. Have fun and take lots of pictures.
