48 Hours Later

Our new family has almost been home for 48 hours now and we definitely have had an interesting time...

From the feeding to the poopie diapers to the naps, we are slowly learning how this little machine operates. I can tell you this... she definitely works on HER schedule. I realized that you give up a lot when you have a child, so an example of this was last night. I decided to sit down and watch the All Star game for a bit. Keep in mind, I am watching the game in my office holding on to Sylvia and not downstairs on the 'big' TV holding a beer. While this is fantastic, the little one was certainly running the schedule. She wanted to go to bed, so we had to go to bed. It doesn't matter to her that the game is tied 3-3 going into the bottom of the ninth inning. What I didn't realize was that Sylvia was trying to tell her Daddy that the game will go for another 6 innings, so get some sleep and I will wake you up when it is time. And that she did. After sleeping for only about 45 minutes, Jamie and I woke to crying so we came downstairs and started the routine back up again. Jamie asked me who won the game (that is crazy it its own way), so I checked online to see that the game is still going! So Sylvia ate, Mommy rocked, and Daddy got to watch Justin Mornau 'run' home and 'slide' to score the game-winning run. American League 4 - National League 3. Eat It. The best part of this night was the fact Sylvia (and Mom and Dad) slept for over 3 1/2 hours! That was AWESOME! Enough about my little story...


While we were in the hospital, my brother and sister-in-law and parents took watch over Lucy. It wasn't until yesterday that she came home.

Lucy doesn't quite know what to think of Sylvia, but I think she will become a great guard dog!



In other news, there have been several people commenting on Sylvia's resemblance to her Daddy. While I think she is the most beautiful person in the world, it is hard to imagine that people would put most beautiful and Adam in the same sentence, unless that sentence is: "Adam is not the most beautiful person in the world." So, I found the old baby pictures that Mom has saved for all of these years and wanted to post them side by side to get your opinions...





















I hope to add more later, including the Nurse's visit to the house and other exciting stories, but nap time is almost up. Talk to you later.

Adam,
Jamie never commented on what a creative writer you are! Great information. Sounds like the two of you have it down as a team. That's awesome. Love the blogging. Let's see some pictures of the new Mom and Dad and, of course, that beautiful new addition. Can't wait to meet her.
