Baby hog

So much for being worried about having a baby.  Ever since I popped the little girl out leif has been in love. So much in fact that he won't let me have her when he is home from work. He went from being deathly afraid of her to knowing what to do better than me. He had to fix how I put a diaper on. He burps her better than me and he keeps her awake better than me. And he was the worried one. He was just singing to her while saying what her arms and legs are. Now he is making her spell out o.h.i.o. with her arms. I told him that he is wonderful and such a good daddy. I already know her first word will be daddy.

Baby shower

Our welcome baby shower was today since someone decided to come early and miss our original shower date. It was so much fun everyone loved being able to see Scarlett at the shower. We now have plenty of diapers and more than enough love from all of our friends and family.  Scarlett knows how loved she is. She is one lucky kid.

Loving it

Its so nice to have everyone under one roof. Right now we are all in the living room.  Leif is sitting on the couch and crammed on the loveseat are Scarlett buckeye and myself.  It feels wonderful.  She fits in so well. Buckeye is getting used to her. He loves smelling her. My favorite part of having her home is that her and buckeye get to bond. Now back to how she fits in. This little girl is a loud farter.  It shocked us the first couple times. Now the problem with her being a loud farter is that we now have one more "person" to blame it on. Well this morning all four of us were in the living room and all you hear is ferrrrrrrrrrt. I look at leif knowing it wasn't him and we both look behind us and it was buckeye.  We laughed so hard. We thought it would be our new pooper but it was the always powerful dog fart. What a family we have.

We went up to go see Scarlett today and the doctor said to go ahead and bring her home.  I almost cried I was so happy. She met her brother.  The big hairy monster that he is and I think he likes her. He keeps licking her legs. Its love. He is now sleeping by her bassinet.  I can't believe she is finally home.

Any day now

Just waiting for the word to bring her home. The end of this week seems promising.  It can't come soon enough.  I mean look at that face.

Bottles bottles bottles

Scarlett is doing great. She is over five pounds,  passed her carseat test,  can breathe on her own and can regulate her temperature.  The only thing we are waiting on is eating.  Its harder than you think for a preme. She is on 3 bottles or boobies a day and has to get up to eight to come home. She eats well but gets sleepy before she finishes.  So everyone send your best fat kid vibes to the little girl and make her a hungry hungry hippo.
