Newborn News...Part One

Not much going on here folks. Just thought I should update you since I see that people have been stopping by (I appreciate the interest, thanks a bunch).

Sarah is growing. She eats so much that I think that on Tuesday, when she has her first appointment, she may show that she's gained instead of lost newborns often do. She makes plenty of "sourdough biscuit" diapers for us, and her pipes thankfully do not keep air trapped in them. Let's hope she keeps ripping out the farts! (but she's such a lady...). I gave her a sponge bath last night and my heart just melted. She didn't like it very much, but I just couldn't get over how tiny and delicate she is. I am in love (I know, I know, I've mentioned that before) and I think it's pretty safe to say that I'm not the only one around here that feels that way. Phillip is totally wrapped around her little finger!

Gabe is still excited about her; just not quite sure about things right now. It's a big change for him and I think that her being so tiny kinda scares him. He treads very softly around her and has mentioned that he doesn't want to hurt her. We explained to him that he can still be very much the little boy that he is, but just to be careful about certain things like where to aim his Nerf Gun. He called her the "house princess" this morning, so I think that things will be totally okay with him soon. He likes to spend time with me while I'm feeding her, and I take that time to stay in touch with him. It's our special time.

Hope all is well on your end. I'll try to update you soon.

It won't take long before she's big enough for that active boy to be just as active as always... or ALMOST as active. Hugs to the new big brother and a little kiss for the princess. :)
