Tummy time!

Well, we've made it through 11 days and each day is more amazing than the last. I know its said that babies can't smile, but we replicated the smile above multiple times through silly actions so we are sure Miss C can and does smile! She is also starting to enjoy her tummy time! Every time we get a chance to lay her down on her belly, Miss C does everything she can to lift up her head and even tries to crawl (pesky arms aren't working!).

We've also discovered that DH purchased what we now call the "poopy chair." Allow me to explain. As with most babies, Miss C's digestive system is quite immature and as a nursing child, she has a tremendous amount of poop and other bodily functions to work out. Sometimes it seems like she hasn't taken a poop in a while so we put her in her little swing and let her go. She grunts and groans and eventually you hear her success. In fact, she has been known to smile vastly upon completion. Yep, I am a certified Mommy now, just reading the above entry, all that poop talk.... Forgive me! ;-)

We have Miss C's two week check up on Friday so we'll let ya'll know how her weight's going, though, based on the photos posted, we can all pretty much agree she has gained back some of the weight she lost in the hospital. Oh, and for those who argue that you can't have caffine and be pregnant or breast feed, WHATEVA! Miss C sleeps like an angel when she wants to, caffine or not. Speaking of which, Miss C is calling for me "Oh Breakfast Lady, I'm ready!" Got to get for now!

SMILING! She's a GENIUS! That's sooooo cute. And she's super strong, I'm not surprised. I can't wait to hear about her doctor's appointment.

I just love the tummy time picture. I told DH we'll be taping her next one. She's just so cute when she cranes her neck out and tries to crawl. We've been warned that she is so strong she will roll over early! So much to look forward to! Can't wait for your visit!
