Hello! Here is an update on how we are doing:
James went home on Friday...he couldn't miss more than a week of work and I was really grateful to have him with me for 9 days. He said that Kayley was so surprised to see him when she woke up the next morning. He told me she had grown since he has seen her last...what?! Noooo! She is not allowed to grow without me. :)
I miss her so much. It is funny...I am homesick, not for my home, but for my sweet little Kayley. (Oh, and I miss James a little too...but he just left so not nearly as much *yet*. LoL!)
I am still hanging out here in Arizona. I am so thankful to my dear friends Connie and Glen for letting me impose on them for the past 9 days (and more to come). They have been gracious and helpful.
My mom is coming out on Tuesday afternoon to help me drive back home. It looks like we should be able to leave Thursday morning...Yay!
Maggie- ok...I have to tell you about this amazing little girl. It is hard to believe that she is already 8 days old! She rarely cries. Seriously! She just hangs out, stares at me, looks around, sleeps, eats and quietly 'requests' a diaper change or help with an air bubble... Last night she ate at 10pm, slept until 2am, drank 3oz, zonked back out, slept until 6am, drank 3 more oz, fell back asleep and slept until 10am! Am I spoiled or what?! :) :) :)
She is alert in the mornings, usually enjoying a couple of hours of awake time. We just hang out and chat. (ok, I'm the one doing all the talking...but she is really a GREAT listener.) She likes to have her hair washed...her eyes roll up into the top of her head. (Mine do too when I get my hair washed!). She likes to lounge in her swing and patiently and calmly tolerates my insistence that she get some supervised time on her tummy 2x's a day. (Trying to avoid the flat head, bald spot and general tummy time meltdowns for the future). She is also a trooper in the car seat and has enjoyed her 2 trips in the stroller. (She slept the whole time-haha).
She loves her Soothie binky. My attempts at getting her to enjoy a Nuk or Button have failed and looks like we will be staring at the big, round, green, (ugly), binky for a few months.. (I did notice that they come in "fashion colors" at BabiesRUs...)
Anyway, that's where we are. Still waiting for ICPC to clear, but looks like it should happen early this week! I can't wait to get home. I miss my Kayley.
