Christmas Dress

Today was Aubriana's first time at church. She did so good. We barely get inside the doors and the women come flocking to her. She was admired by many. They were all asking us how big she was when she was born and when I tell them 7lbs 2 oz, they couldn't believe it. They all thought she was so tiny. She is gaining weight normal and eating more and more.

Dad's Home!

Tim was able to come home Thursday from the storm job he's been working in Kansas for over a week. I, of course, was very excited. I couldn't wait to see him. It's so nice to be a family again. He said the conditions out there were incredible. Power lines were down every where and it was very very cold. I'm just glad he is home safe and sound a few days before Christmas. This is a picture of how much he missed Aubriana.

While he was gone, I was in Costco and found the cute outfit that Aubriana is wearing and thought it would be very appropriate to have her wear it when he got home. I also thought it was too cute not to pass up. I got Newborn size but it still drowns her. Oh well, she'll be able to wear it a little while longer. :)

Children's Hospital

Because Aubriana hasn't had a bowel movement on her own since she's been home from the Hospital... our Pediatrician ordered a barium enema for her at the Children's Hospital. He wanted to rule out that she didn't have a disease called Hirshsprungs where the colon narrows at the end and it makes it difficult to pass anything through. At first I wasn't comfortable taking her to Radiology for being 10 days old, so I got a second opinion. The second doctor agreed that she needed it done, so I called and reset the appointment.

Yesterday I took her to Children's and she was such a trooper! The only time she really cried hard was when the nurse held her legs down to take the x-rays. She was very very good. I was proud of her. The doctor called later and told me that everything looks great. She definitely doesn't have anything wrong. So, sounds like she just has a really tight bum. So, now I just wait until Wednesday to see if she has bowel movements on her own or if we need to see the gastroenterologist to see if we need to help her for a while. So far last night she had two messy diapers, however, I think it was because of all the stuff they put in her to see her bowels. So, I'm waiting it out today to see if she goes anymore.

Above is a picture Aunt Dana took of her when she was here. It's one of my many favorites! She looks like a berry.

Patty Cake!

Thanks to Lurlyn, I've been inspired to share a video. Tim is introducing Bumble Bee to her first patty cake, however, I had to sing the song cause Tim couldn't remember it all. Enjoy!

Expressions

It's been so fun to see how much personality our bumble bee already has. Everytime I take pictures of her, I find new expressions on her cute little face. I don't think I'll ever get enough of her. These faces make all those sleepless hours worth it! ;)




Apologizing!

I'm sorry its been so long since I've posted anything on my blog. We've been busy enjoying family and new baby! Now that things are quieting down, we are loosing the man of the house for a while. Tim has been called out with his crew to Kansas to help all the people that are out of power there. He leaves at 5 am. We're not sure how long he will be out, probably until Christmas. :( I'm really bummed out about him going but try to remind myself of all those people in need of power. I can't imagine myself in that situation.


So... I thought I would post my favorite picture of my babe for now and promise to post more tomorrow. I think I've taken a million and one pictures of her so I shouldn't have any trouble getting them posted.

Share the knowledge!
