Bringing Baby Home...

Goodness, time is just FLYING by with little Anna!!  So much has happened in her little baby world ~ here's what we've been up to for the past two weeks!

We brought Anna home two days after she was we are ready to leave the hospital!

We had a little bit of trouble with the carseat, even though it's the same one we used for Ben.  Anna and Ben were close to the same size, but it seemed like we couldn't get the seat to go small enough for petite little Anna!  Mark and the nurse worked on it for a while and we finally felt good about keeping her safe for that 5 minute drive home :)

First ride in the car!!

She had a tiny, tiny bit of jaundice ~ so little that the doctors didn't even require any follow-up.   So, we tried to get her a lot of sunshine the first few days.  Turns out that's hard when you've got them bundled up keeping warm!!  Here she is looking very Elvis-like with her shirt open to let some skin show, sitting by the window...

Out on her first stroller ride!  I was itching to get outside and enjoy this "cooler" weather we've been having.  She did GREAT riding in the stroller, and even slept better that night.  Of course, I took her for a stroller ride the exact same time the next day, hoping for another good such luck, ha ha!!

Anna's big brothers think she's pretty neat.  I love this picture - it's the first time Ben got to hold his sister.  We'd been keeping them separate as much as possible because Ben had a 102° fever the night before we brought Anna home (YIKES!), but fortunately, that was the worst of it.  So, I think he was pretty sweet!!

Anna's first visit to the doctor ~ Granddaddy Raoul!
