Baby Isabella

Here Isabella is with her outfit, slippers and diaper bag that her 10-yr-old big sister drained her savings to buy her for a baby gift! Getting to leave the hospital after 8 days of being there...
Don't they just swim in these carseats at first? And to think that before too many months pass, her head will be hanging out at the top and her toes will be dangling over the bottom of this seat!
" Oh, oh, oh...it just is so much louder out here than in your tummy, Mommy!"

So very sleepy!!!! Time to tuck in for another piece of my 23 out of 24 hour sleep quota...My mom, on the other hand, ends up getting that one extra hour that I don't use up to fulfill her sleep needs every day! I keep her on my schedule day and night! I just cry out in my sleep for a feeding, then after I get my fill, I burp, then load my diaper, then wait for my mom to start changing me so I can try finish pooping and peeing right into her hand or my outfit or both just as she is wiping my teeny-tiny little bottom or to make it really fun, try time it so she is just pulling out one diaper and scrambling to push the impossibly tiny preemie diaper under my little rump! Gotta keep her on her toes. I've gotta hand it to her, after 6 babies, she's gotten pretty fine-tuned reflexes so I rarely get my load onto my clothes or blanket. I have managed to score a few times into her hand so I'm pretty happy with myself! Well, on to my dreamy dreamland........zzzzzzzzzzz-z-z-z-z-z!
Isabella's been eating better and better, meaning I have to "milk" (pump) less and less frequently. She is more awake (slightly) and doing everything she should be doing (which isn't much)! I have been feeling better and better as the days pass, so we have no complaints!!! Isabella's 2 weeks old today already!

Congratulations! She's adorable. Can't imagine what it's like to have a daughter...I'll just keep dreaming about it

:) Yeah, isn't it funny how some can have all kids of one gender and others have all of the other? We have quite a few in our families that have 5 in a row of one gender but I think we just broke the record by having 6 in a row! My husband has a brother that has 5 boys, 2 sisters that both had 5 girls then a boy, I have a sister that had 4 girls then a boy...a brother that had, oh wait a minute.. they had 6 girls in a row too and then twins, a girl and boy... Full houses! :)

By the way, I have tried to get back on your blog site several times and can't get on. Is it just my computer or have you had some troubles with your site? I wanted to go back and read some more when I have my down time after my kids are in bed!
