A couple of days ago I was watching Jake get himself dressed and I said something like, "When did you get to be such a big boy?" He answered, "I'm just growing up I guess."

My petite little baby is a porker! We went yesterday for her 2 week check-up (at 3 weeks, go figure) and she had gained 2 pounds in 2 weeks! I had been wondering if she was eating enough because she nurses so quickly compared to the boys. They took somewhere in the neighborhood of 45 minutes to eat, and she's done in about 15 flat. So glad we got a girl. Anyway, she's very healthy other than that pesky congestion.

After being at Grammy & Papa's house (Ryan's parents) yesterday swimming in their pool, we decided we needed one (read: really wanted one) because it absolutely wore the boys out and they ate like horses for dinner. So we trekked on over to the Wal-Mart Supercenter and found the same one. Summer is shaping up to be one of lots of good night-time sleep!

The Little Miss is now a week old and hasn't changed much since she was born (of course). She's a pretty easy going baby, getting fussy when it's close to eating time or when she's getting a bath! The boys continue to be very gentle and loving with her, we'll just have to wait and see how long that lasts. I suspect all that will end right around the time she can start grabbing their toys, but who really knows?

Even after being home for over a day now, I can't tell you how thankful I am to be here and not at the hospital! I strongly prefer my own bed and privacy. I still can't believe Aubrey came this early and that we're already home! It's been a fun time getting used to 3 little ones around here. Crazy, but fun. My mom is here helping us out...cooking, cleaning up, playing with the boys, holding the girl. Anyway, here are a couple more pictures to show you. It is so different having pink clothes and blankets and pillows, a whole new world.

As the title declares, you would think I'd know after having 2 babies what real labor is. We had a major false alarm this morning. I woke up when Ryan got up this morning at 4:30 and was having real (or so I thought!) contractions laying in bed for a little over an hour. I finally got up at 5:45 and informed hubby that he probably doesn't want to take a subbing job today because this was IT. Well, after a little while of being up and about things kind of cooled off. All you people who I would have called to say that I was in labor are probably glad I didn't at that hour! But I'm not discounting that I may be close because I have not felt "right" all day. Though this could be my body punishing me for the extremely long and active day we had yesterday. Our kids were certainly punishing us this morning for the extremely long and active day without proper rest we had yesterday, so why not my own body?
Or rather backward...On Saturday we went out and did a couple of the things that were on my list to prepare for baby girl. We got some pacifiers, a Boppy cover (pink camouflage!), and an Icee to hold the boys over. The boys were thrilled with the pacis:
Warren couldn't figure out how to keep it in his mouth while saying "cheese!"
My sister-in-law Christi also gave us the baby clothes she had from her 2 girls, so I spent part of the morning today sorting and putting clothes away. Thanks Christi!
Let's go Baby Girl, I'm ready! (Well except for Shilo's baby shower on Saturday, I'd really really like to make it to that, since I'm in on the planning and executing of said shower! Hope I see you Saturday Shi.)
