One Week

I can't believe that a week has already flown by!
Here is what we have been up to:

We received excellent care at CMC Pineville. My only complaints had to do with not being able to watch NBC in my room and the lack of food that I could eat. Fortunately Dave was able to bring me food. When the hospital called to follow up I mentioned easy things they could add to the menu to make it more friendly to someone on a gluten free diet. Oh, and hospital beds are much more uncomfortable than I ever imagined!

Ashley came to visit us at the hospital and brought us our first girl clothes!

Thursday we came home.

We went to the pediatrician for the first time. Sophia weighed in at 6lbs. I brought the camera with me but forgot to take it out. In the waiting room I breast fed in "public" for the first time. I don't think it counts when you are at the pediatrician, but it needed to be done.

We Skyped with Nana and Grandpop for the first time.

Sunday was our first adventure out of the house to go grocery shopping. I'm training Sophia young on how to get the best deals at the store :) Her carseat is way too big to fit in a cart and still allow for groceries.

Cracks me up that newborn clothes are too big for Sophia.
We just roll everything up.
Dave is an awesome Daddy. It makes me smile and brings a tear to my eye to watch him interact with our daughter. He has been so attentive and helpful. Fortunately he has been able to sleep through most of Sophia's middle of the night crying. He had dental work done on Thursday that is causing him some problems. He goes back today to get it looked at. I think he has been in more pain than I have.

Hunter is getting more comfortable with Sophia. He likes to sniff at her and try to chew on her fuzzy green blanket. He also likes to bark at her when she makes noises - fortunately she is not fazed by his barking yet. Hunter paws at us when he wants attention and his big goofy paws have tried to paw at Sophia.

Kona still sniffs at Sophia and is constantly checking in on her. He likes to steal the onesies and hats she has worn. He is doing much better with trying to constantly give her kisses.

I am doing really well. I am impressed with how little sleep I need right now. Overall I feel really good. Breastfeeding is a success so far. We go to see the lactation consultant today and I am looking forward to getting some tips and suggestions.
