Friday, May 23, 2008

she falls asleep on me as I watch sports or politics. Maybe she's just bumbed that Archuleta didn't win American Idol, he did appeal to young girls.

Thank you Tiare for this hat! She loves it

Suzi and her parents drove over from Greensboro (1 hour west) to meet Olivia. Suzi is one of her many honorary aunts.

I don't know if she likes sleeping on me compared to her bed, but I prefer it!

Sarah's mom is in town and has been a tremendous help.

Kerrie and Sarah have made slings to carry Olivia in; I'm pretty sure she likes them because she sleeps the whole time she's in them.

More pictures

We walked 2.5 miles through the Carolina North Forest on Monday, I can't believe how well Sarah is doing!

It's been great having my dad around

My mom was in Chapel Hill for 2 weeks helping us get settled into parenthood. Her help was invaluable. It was also great having Kent here for the weekend.

Sleeping Olivia

Since she spends so much of her time sleeping and we spend so much of our time admiring her while she sleeps, we've taken lots of pictures. Notice how she loves putting her hands up to her face.

(she's not technically sleeping, though she's waking up)

Olivia's First Week

This is one of my favorite pictures. It shows her facial features better than most, not to mention how cute she is while she's sleeping with her mouth open.

Her first bath. Believe it or not, she really seemed to like it. She was sleepy enough that we basically had to wake her up for the bath, but she never complained.

She spends a lot of her non-bed time hanging out in this chair. She's such an easy going child, that even when she wakes up she basically just sits there and watches the world. She'll cry when she's ready to eat, but other than that, she's not fussy at all.

Here's mommy and Olivia on day 2 looking as beautiful as ever. Many thanks to our good friend Amy for this wonderful wrap. I've enjoyed being able to carry her close to me, as has Sarah.
