Little Love

Lot's to write about, but not so much time to do it. Annabelle is doing great! She is weighing about 12.5lbs! She is all smiles and sweetness. She has had some big accomplishments in the past week. For starters, our "Little Love" rolled over for the first time this past Saturday! I put her down for tummy time, and went to clean her jammies that she got a little messy. ;) As I was in the laundry room treating the spots, I noticed that I didn't hear her normal fussiness during tummy time. I went into the living room to check on her, and she was laying on her side. I was thinking, "She's gonna roll over!". Sure enough, she was soon on her back and then soon in Mommy's arms as I was squealing in delight! She was so excited that I was so excited, but I don't think she even knew what she did. It's so amazing to be apart of her growing and learning. Makes all the hours of doing to same things over and over seem like there is something going on that I don't see. Good job Annaboo!

I also went back to work yesterday. I will only be working one day each week, but the thought of Annabelle not being with Mommy for 14 hours made my stomach turn. I cried the night before, but was actually fine while I was at work. BTW, talk about being thrown back into the swing of things. I had a patient with an emergency situation at 8am. He had a heart attack! There I was calling the rescue assessment team in the hospital, thinking "seriously, this is my first day back!". But everything came back to me. It's amazing what the mind is capable of under pressure. It was nice to get some brain stimulation and use my critical thinking skills. It was also nice at then end of the day knowing that I won't be back again until next week! :) Annabelle, did great yesterday with Daddy. She took all of her bottles, took two three hour naps and went grocery shopping with Daddy. Michael did a great job. I almost felt a little jealous that Annabelle had such a great day with her Pappa. I mean, wasn't she supposed to be fussy and wondering where her Momma was? Oh, well. I'm glad it was a good day for all of us.

Here are a few pics. We had high hopes of getting some cute pics of our sweetie in her Easter dress, but she "exploded" in it, before we could get some good shots. :( Thankfully we were able to clearn her dress and are hoping for some family pics here in the near future. Stay tuned!
