Out of the house...

After being in the hospital for over a week and then at home for a couple of days, it was nice to get out of the house...even if it was for a doctor's appointment. A had her first doc's appointment today. Our baby girl is 8 days old! I tried to do a one week post last night, but my computer wasn't cooperating. And I was tired. So I gave up. Here are a few pics from today.

Mommy & A at the doctor's office


We were happy that Grinny got to go with us! My sweet Momma has been driving back and forth from my house to my sister's house for the past few days. She has been taking care of everyone and I know she's exhausted...she has been the biggest help!! Pray for my sister, Joy. She had her tonsils out. That is a very hard surgery to have when you're above the age of 5. I know this because I had mine out at 4 years ago...it was bad.


Our baby girl is a little piglet. She has gained 3 1/2 ounces since being home from the hospital. And she now weighs half an ounce more than her birth weight...YAY!!


This is A's pediatrician. We really liked her and she was very happy with A's improvements since coming home. Her bilirubin is coming down as well!


I asked Momma if we could stop by the store to pick up a few things after leaving the doc's office. I was feeling pretty good and felt like walking around some. So A had her first trip to Wally-World.


She didn't see any of it though. She was snoozing and I kept her like this the entire time we were out. My blog friend, Mel sent me this cute blanket with A's name and date of birth. I love it! It came in very handy today while sitting in the pediatrician's office, watching everyone around us cough their heads off. Ick.


It was an all-around good day! A is so sweet. I could just sit and kiss her face all day long. I love being a Mommy. :)

Love to all,

What a big day for a little miss A! She is just the most precious thing I have ever seen. Who do you guys think she looks like? I'm kind of leaning towards your husband. ;-) Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
