Happy 4th!

Ok, so maybe it's already the 5th... it's 12:13am Independence night... so I am a little late on the well wishes. We didn't do too much today; I am really sore so we opted to stay in. My mom and dad came over with my Uncle Gary and Karen (G&K just got home from vaycay and hadn't met Nolan yet.) We had a really nice visit. Aaron cleaned the house in preperation and made me lunch... in addition to putting together the stroller... I appreciate him so much. :-)

I had a mini melt down tonight; was feeling achy (fluish) and my tummy is extra sore... not to mention the irritation from the cath... I just started to cry. Could be the hormones too! I am calling the doc in the morning w/ regard to the cath irritation... this is some b/s.

Everything else is going wonderfully... I know this is going to come across like I'm gushing, but get used to it. I just can't get over how in love I am with my little Nolan... my heart is as full as it has ever been, and seems to be getting fuller and fuller with each passing moment. I have had the warm fuzzies since last wednesday, and man... it's just awesome. I can't wait to get up with him at night... I get excited just thinking about getting him out of his cradle to change his dipe and have a snack. Hell, I don't even wake Aaron up as I had planned to, unless I need his help with something, because I usually have it all under control and enjoy being up with Nolan when it seems the whole world is asleep. Plus, I'd rather he be well rested if I need a nap and Nolan isn't asleep... though right now all he's doing is eating, sleeping, and pooping. Occasionally we get a few minutes of alert time... I love that time. he just looks around, and coos... he makes all these different funny faces... and it amuses us greatly.

Lastly, I'm swollen as a motherfucker... my feet are more swollen today than they EVER were in pregnancy... the tops of my feet were almost kind of sore at different points today. I didn't really get overheated or feel sweaty though until late this evening; all day I felt pretty cool. Oh, and I've had zero appetite today. Have drank a few glasses of cranberry juice, and some water... Aaron made me a mini totino's pizza for late lunch around 2pm, but I just have no desire to eat. Weird.

Anyhoo, the real reason I came here was to update people on the baby pool. The winner is...

Kirsten Mccullough! Even though Nolan was 8lbs 8.9oz, the closest weight of course would be 8lbs 9oz, and she guessed that correctly as well as his length. Kirsten, I can't seem to find your email address, so if you could email me and let me know what address to send the $$ via paypal to, I would be grateful!

How about a few more pics?



Nolan hopes you had a very happy 4th!



Nolan got to try out his bouncy seat today; he was hungry though and didn't care to be in it for more than a few minutes.



He also got a sponge bath today, to which he heartily protested.



He slept on my chest like this for a few hours tonight, man there is just nothing better than a sleeping baby on your chest. Heaven.
