I always put these pictures in reverse order...think I'd learn!...ANYway, We had a very busy, fun Christmas. We spent Christmas Eve & Christmas Day with Magaw, Papaw, Aunt Erika, Uncle Joe, Cousin Ellie, Cousin Jake, & Aunt Tammy. Grace wore her Baby's 1st Christmas outfit & way-too-big red shoes. We then headed up north to Flora on Friday for Christmas with the Seelman/Hall side. Uncle John & Sara got to meet Grace...I guess I didn't take any photos...someone did...We got to see lots of family on Saturday as well. Then church on Sunday & dad left for work...Grace & I stayed in Flora until today & got to visit with lots of friends. It's good to be back home though!
Hard at work with Grandpa Seelman.
Andrew's first attempts at feeding his daughter. Grace had slept nearly 5 1/2 hrs one night (now I know not to let her do) & momma needed to get rid of some of the excess...which turned out to be a nice thing...we might try this more often.
Great Grandma Hall holding Grace for the first time. They really hit it off! Love at 1st sight!
Jake decided that maybe he would like to hold Grace. This was his first time holding her...conveniently, he was about to get in trouble...but Grace has a way of saving her big cousin from impending doom.
Ellie helped open all of Grace's Christmas presents.
Catching some rays on Christmas Day!
Ridiculously large red shoes as mentioned above...they matched! :)
Update on us: Grace was weighed again today with little progress. She's now 7lbs. 6oz...still not up to birth weight. So, we are going to wake our sleeping baby even more often (every 2hrs during day & 3-4 at night) and have her seen & weighed next week. Cross your fingers...I'm wanting to stay away from supplementing as long as we can.
I went to the doctor on Friday & got a lot of questions answered. I really like my new doctor & trust that he is going to take good care of me. I get blood checked weekly & dosage adjusted as needed. My leg has been quite sore & painful the past couple of days...he said that was normal. Yea! I don't actually see him again for 2 months.
