Settling in

I have to apologize for not posting for the past few days. We have been catching up on the housework and getting settled with O.  We are all doing great!  Special thanks to Grandma B for being here Monday and Tuesday helping with whatever we needed, from scrubbing toilets to folding towels to holding O.  We could not have gotten back on track without you.

I am trying to keep up with emails, but as many of you know, it is tricky for Mommies to get computer time with a baby.  Babies are much sweeter and warmer than computers, anyway, but I want all of you to know that we appreciate every kind word and every gift.  Thank you list is sitting there waiting for me, and Peter and I are working on ordering birth announcements.

We are truly enjoying every aspect of having O in our lives!  She is the sweetest baby and it is an honor to spend time with her day and night!
Rory is glad to have Mommy and Daddy home.  She is a great help!  Always following me around.  The cats have a very healthy cautious respect for O. They have seen these little babies grow up and they know that before long the tables will be turned.  Lorelai is not that interested. She is just glad that Mommy is home to feed her on a more normal schedule.
Today, we went to the doctor for a well baby check up.
O weighs 4 lbs 14 oz.
Feeding is going well.  She just finished 2 oz. in 10 minutes!  An all time personal best for O!
