Anna Claire had her first bath the other night. Clearly, it didn't go as well as we had hoped. She loves the warm water, but I think when the cold air hit her, it took her breath away and she didn't like it so much anymore.


Mike has been fooling around with his camera to see if we can get some shots of Anna Claire that are similar to those that you would get with a professional photographer. This is the first try. All we did was buy a black sheet and drape it over the sofa. He is going to adjust the lighting, centering, etc. She started to have a meltdown shortly after this was taken so we called it a night.

One of Mike's best friends, Bob (who also happens to be his assistant coach for softball) and his wife, Jayne stopped by to meet Anna Claire. They were her first official visitors. Because of the precautions the doctor has said we need to take with it being RSV season and her being still so small, we hosed Bob and Jayne down outside with warm, soapy water and then once inside we lathered them up, head to toe, with antibacterial hand sanitizer! :)

We go back to the doctor today for a weight check--hopefully she will have surpassed the 5 lb. mark!

She is adorable! I remember when our first came home we made people wear mask and wash their hands. It is fun to think about all that now.
Enjoy! Today my baby is 15 and going to get her drivers permit!Time flys!

That picture of her on the couch is very good! She is so adorable and still so tiny but it won't take her long to start getting big.

It's a really good attempt at the professional type shot! She's so cute that any photo will be great. :) Good luck having her go past 5 lbs!

Mike's picture turned out so well! Her little smile is so charming. I love her plump tummy in her bath picture, she's looking so healthy. It's hard to believe she's already a month old!
