I know I started off my post yesterday in disbelief that it was Friday, but I kinda sorta forgot it was Friday later in the day. The days just seem to blend together these days. So here it is SATURDAY. I can't help but think that this time last week we were so sad that she had not arrived yet and were trying desperately to keep positive. Little did we know that we would end up at the hospital later that evening and have our little one on Sunday...

It is amazing the difference a week makes. We are still fumbling around, trying (and we think succeeding!) to be good parents and take care of her the way she needs to be cared for. There is so much second guessing and confusion about how to do things, and when to do things. Luckily we both have wonderful Moms who are always up for answering our questions and addressing our concerns.

Caroline continues to get cuter by the minute. She loves sucking on her sleeves and will find ways to unbundle just her arm to get that hand up to her face. Ironically, her little "paw" is up by her face in all out ultrasound shots. OH - and that right foot is still sticking out straight all the time too! Unfortunately her preferred method of using her hands at present is to gouge her eye sockets. AHHH!!! I have filed her nails down as much as I can to prevent any damage, but JEEZ!!! She makes adorable little faces and cute little noises which melt your heart.

We are still trying to decide whose this or that she has - but it seems to us that she has Dad's nose, detached ear lobes, tongue (she has a habit of always having it out a bit) and Mom's hair and maybe her eyes. She looks like both of us - but really she is herself - bits of us here and there, but very much her own little person =)

OH and on a personal note - I have discovered a new method to lose at least 20 lbs in a week! It's a marvel of science!!!! Have a baby - seriously I am 7 pounds up from where I started already and I cannot believe it. I credit it to my healthy eating throughout the pregnancy and breastfeeding. The most bizarre thing ---- being able to see my feet and thighs again??!!?!?!?

Here are some more photos... From Day 5 and today Day 6 AM.
