The First Week

Believe it or not, tomorrow our little Isabelle will already be one week old!  I can't believe it.  She was a little jaundiced so we had to take her back to the doctor on Monday to get her billy-reuben (that's how it sounds... no idea if that's how it's really spelled) level rechecked.  She has been eating and pooping like a champ so her levels are back down to normal and will continue to decrease as she eats.  She was 6 lbs 12 oz when we left the hospital on Saturday and was up to 7 lbs 4 oz on Monday morning.  I told you - eating like a champ!! :)  She's growing like a weed!  We (Grandma Gloria - aka "GG" - and I) went shopping yesterday afternoon and got all sorts of pink and purple clothes so our little girl gets to be dressed up in cutesy girl stuff now! :)  It's fun!!  Here are a few more pictures from this week.  She's just so darn cute!

Sleepy head.

Our little munchkin bundled up like an Eskimo.  She loves it.  Puts her right to sleep!
After her first actual bath.  She was NOT a happy camper during her bath.  But she loves these fuzzy snuggly little jammies!

We can't forget the furry little children.  They have been incredibly well behaved since we've been home with Isabelle.  They are super curious, but already very protective.  Elwood likes to lay in front of the swing when she's in it like a little watchdog.  Yesterday, she was sleeping in her playpen and started spitting up a little and making little gurgling noises and Jake started barking to let us know that something wasn't quite right.  As you can see from this picture, all that hard work "baby sitting" keeps them zonked out! :)

Happy Turkey Day to all tomorrow!!
