Well, we've made it through our first week at home and then some. Can't believe Emma is already 12 days old. I'm so glad my Mom was able to stay with us from Monday through Thursday last week. She was a HUGE help. It's hard to do a lot of things when you are recovering from a C-Section. I feel so much better now though. Almost normal, except after a car ride, then I'm really sore.
We've discovered that Emma is a VERY gassy baby, ha ha! It hits her at night and makes her one unhappy child. She also isn't real keen on sleeping in her crib by herself. So we've taken to sleeping in the chair with her. It's the only way we can both get some sleep. And by 3AM, I'll take sleep any way I can get it! She's sleeping for 4 hours at time sometimes though, which is really nice.
Today the Visiting Nurse came to check on me and Emma. Emma is already past her birth weight - we're so happy about they. The doctors were worried in the begininng about how much weight she lost, she wasn't eating. That's not a problem now! Her umbilical cord came off, so now she has the cutest little belly button.
We've taken so many cute pictures of her, I think we need to share them - so, here are some pictures of our adorable Emma from the last week or so:
Big feet and a sleeping face (2/19/06)
She seriously has big feet, but they're so cute. Thanks Abby, for taking this picture of her face.
Sound asleep in her bassinet (2/21/06)
Yeah, this doesn't happen that often!
Bathtime and a sweet face (2/22/06)
She didn't seem to mind the sponge bath too much, thankfully, only a little crying.
And afterwards, she was awfully calm, quite content to just lay there and let me take pictures. :)

Rebekah, Michael keeps trying to get Emma to hold on to that rattle you got her!
