3 Weeks Today

Gabriella is 3 weeks old today. Wow does time fly by. It really doesn't feel like she's been here for 3 weeks, but she has. My hormones have started leveling out a bit so I'm not as overly emotional as I was last week, Thank God! Gabbie is starting to sleep fairly well at night as well. Sometimes she's on a 2 hour schedule and other nights she sleeps longer between feedings. Some days are better than others, but all in all she's a pretty good baby. The Man may have to start sleeping in the guest room though, she's been keeping him up at night. She doesn't cry when she's ready to eat instead she makes this grunting noise and, unfortunately, she does it in her sleep as well. So, all night long you hear Gabbie grunt and, I have to admit, it can get pretty annoying.

She met her paternal grandparents this past weekend. They drove in from North Carolina on Friday and left yesterday morning. It was a nice visit. They also brought along The Man's grandfather so there were 4 generations together, so I just had to take a picture.

She also met her Uncle Patrick. Patrick and I went to high school together and have remained good friends. He made a special trip here from Alabama yesterday to see her. It was nice to visit with him. We hadn't seen each other since our wedding in 2008 but we have been in contact through out my pregnancy. He would always make sure to call after my doctor's appointments, making sure that we were OK. I'm lucky to have him apart of my life. Last night we sat and told The Man all the crazy stories from high school. I would go back to high school in a heart beat!! It truly was the best time of my life!

These are just a couple random pictures of Gabbie on a really cold day, all bundled up! The outfit she's wearing is a newborn size and she was swimming in it! But she had to have something warm cause it was really cold that day. The other is a picture that The Man took of Gabbie and I taking a nap. I love nothing more than holding her and taking a cuddly cat nap.

There are a TON of other pictures. Unfortunately they are not on my camera. I've been asking mother to burn me a CD with all of the ones from her camera but I haven't gotten one yet. I'm hoping I will soon and when I do I'll be sure to post more.

Gabbie is sleeping so I'm going to get some chores done and a couple other things I've been meaning to do. Until next time....Ya'll make it a good one!

  1. Does she curl up her tehgs underneath her when she naps? Megan used to do that and we called her frogger. It was the cutest thing. I loved the naptimes too. Still do. Glad you're feeling better, hormome wise. Enjoy the rest of your week.
