Emily Meets the Family!

I'm hoping that my mommy-blogging skills get a little better as time goes on!  I can't believe it's been two weeks since I last posted anything.  Time flies when you're walking around like a zombie (I'm pretty sure that I was about 2 minutes away from falling asleep in Safeway yesterday... while walking. lol).

Emily celebrated her ONE MONTH birthday last Wednesday.  I really can't believe that (as of today) she's been a part of our little family for five weeks!  She is still waking up every 2-3 hours at night to be fed/changed, but she is starting to be awake a lot more during the day and falling asleep a lot faster after her night feedings (which is really awesome to only have to get up for 20-30 minutes and then go back to bed!).

She's able to recognize Jacob and I.  I didn't realize this until we went to visit family this weekend and she, quite obviously, turned toward us when we would talk/walk into a room and make eye contact.  Since Jacob and I are the only adults that she sees on a regular basis, we hadn't realized that she actually KNEW us... and didn't just think we were those people who waited on her hand and foot. =)

As I mentioned, this weekend Jacob and I took Emily to hang out with her Grandma and Grandpa.  It was her first over-night away from home (not counting the hospital).  She did pretty good.  She slept almost all day on Saturday (which made me a little nervous as she's been a lot more awake/alert recently), but was up and at 'em to visit on Sunday morning.  She even let Grandma give her a bath without screaming her head off!  =)

Emily also met her Great-Grandmother and her last aunt/uncle set. She met her other aunts/uncles and cousins last weekend when they came up to Portland to see her.   (Thanks for the photos Brittney!)

Four generations!

Emily is growing and gaining weight quickly, too.  I can't believe how much she has changed in the last month.  She's up to more than 11 pounds!  I love that she's getting the cute little baby chub!  Me, on the other hand, still have plenty of pregnancy chub. =P  I was under the impression that I would have naturally lost more during the delivery (only currently only down 15 lbs)... guess I just ate too many brownies. =P  Positive side to the breastfeeding though is that I now have some pretty awesome cleavage. =)

Aw, so cute! She is getting so big! Isn't it crazy how fast time flies? I know I have said that a lot but it is true. My own baby girl will be 2 at the end of this month. It's just crazy!
