We're home!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for all the greetings and congratulations... Mr. D printed them and brought them to the hospital for me.

We're home now. I'm feeling great, aside from the crushing exhaustion. The baby eats and sleeps like a champ, although she has yet to figure out that 3:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. is not a good time to be fussy. She's keeping us on our toes with the diaper changes... just when you think she's done - you open her diaper, start cleaning her up, and she pees or poos all over you. We're already running low on diapers and wipes. If it wasn't so cold we'd take a family outing to the drugstore, but I think one of us adults will have to go it alone.

And to everyone who says that you don't need the newborn size clothes... she is SWIMMING in her 0-3 month sleepers. Most of the time her little legs are crossed near her bum and they don't even make it down into the legs of the clothes.

Her name will be announced, as per Jewish tradition, in a ceremony at our synagogue. Not this Saturday, because it just seems too close to plan and notify people, but next week. Until then she's "the baby". Or Princess Poopypants. Either one works.

I haven't really decided how I feel about posting pictures of my kid online. Those of you who have been reading me for a long time, I'm happy to send you a pic if you email me and ask... sara at wlualumni dot com.

Happy Thursday, everyone!

I'm so glad you're home! Yeah, We definitely needed newborn sized clothes for Livvie because she was only 7 pounds, and she swam in the 0-3 mos too.
I remember the constant diaper changes so well too.

Much love to you and your family.

She'll be growing like a weed soon and filling out those newborn clothes I bet. And hey, Princess Poopypants sounds good to me!

Email me a pic anyway, okay? I'm surrounded by boys. I need to drool over a girl-baby!
