Last weekend we were very busy. It started Friday morning with Kaitlin's 2 week well check. The doctor said that she's doing great and that Kaitlin is average in height, weight, and head size. She weighed 8lbs 4oz and was 20 1/2 inches long. ( On a side note today I had her weighed and she is 9 lbs 2 oz, is it normal to gain that much in a week? ) After that we went on a nice quiet ride to Oxford for the weekend. We went to see Meme and Pappy and cousin Chase was in town visiting as well. Here's Pappy with Kaitlin. Saturday we went to the Pruitt Family Reunion at Noccalula Falls, a must see if you are ever driving through Gadsden. They have a 100 ft. waterfall, train, walking trails that go under the falls, a petting zoo, and more. Kaitlin went on her first train ride while we were there, she loved it. I didn't get a chance to get a picture of the falls, maybe next year. And here Kaitlin is with Mom. We are still not sure what we are going to call her, Nana She She, Garndma, or Red ( just kidding ).
Even though it was a fun weekend and I really miss everyone I am glad that we are home now.
Piglet had her first bath last week. She screamed the entire time. I felt so sorry for her. You can check out the video here. But I warn you, lots of little baby nudity, and lots of screaming. I'll have to get some video of her later, with her in a little better mood.
Its not all crying and poop. This is what I get to look at every morning before I go to work. Its so sweet when she's just sleeping there, with her arms in the touchdown position. We've been going for walks too. Just me and Piglet. She usually goes to sleep on me just as soon as I put her in the stroller.
I did it, and I never want to do it again. Though I'm sure I will.
I changed my first poopy last night. It was the most disgusting thing ever. I got some on her foot and on the changing table. She cried. I cried. Now I've got to go the store and buy some clothes pins for my nose.
And by the way, whoever told me that it doesn't smell bad when its your own child needs to go read Revelation 21:8 and see what it says about liars.
Last Friday, before the infection, Kaitlin had her first doctor's visit. It went well. She cried a lot when they undressed her, just like me she does not like being cold. She gained an ounce and weighed 7.1 and she grew a 1/2 inch. With her being under the weather right now we've had to hold her a lot more than before. The negative is that it is hard to get anything done when you have a baby in your arms and she will only sleep while you are holding her. Every now and then we can get her to sleep for about 30 minutes in her bed or bouncy seat. Thankfully, Mom is here helping out so I can get some sleep, she's even going to stay extra until the infection clears up. Mom has made everything so much better, she's great. The positive of Kaitlin needing to be held all the time is that you get to see all of her cute facial expressions like her pouty face, her smile that shows off her 2 cute little dimples, and another face were she presses her lips together real hard and makes an O just like her cousin Owen. I have no clue when most babies do this but she can roll over now. I've only seen her do a 1/2 roll to her side but last night she rolled all the way over on her face for Chad.
It didn't take long for Piglet to get sick for the first time. She has an infection, as does her momma. She has been much more unsettled, crying more and wanting to be held all of the time. Its pretty wearing on Chrissy. We've also been instructed not to use a pacifier. That is rough. Despite the problems, there have been moments of bliss. There is nothing better than having that sweet thing in your lap looking up at you. Or watching Josh Beckett and the Sox.
I hear her crying again. I think I'll go see what's going on.
