Well, after many attempts, we caught a smile on camera! It is so cute…she LOVES to smile at her daddy!

Also this weekend we did our first babysitting swap! We spent Friday evening with Haley’s girlfriend Dayla at our house and then the girls hung out at Dayla’s house on Saturday night while Justin and I went out for dinner. It worked out well for all I think. All of the parents got a much needed break! It’s hard sometimes not having family around but we are SO blessed that God has brought us all these other families in the exact same boat to lean on!

There are also pictures from Friday morning when we met Larry and Marguerite Stanley for breakfast and from today when Justin and Haley were laying around :)

Well, it’s been awhile since I’ve written! Haley is officially a little over 5 weeks old! All the books say that she should be starting to smile out of joy at about 1 month and SHE IS! We spent a couple days at Grandma and Grandpa Higgins house this weekend both for a “Haley Baby Shower” and also her Great-Grandma’s 80th birthday! She was willing to smile for her Dad, Grandma and Grandpa….but NOT for mom! What am I just a source of food? OK, at this point, that is about 75% of my job!

Yesterday was my birthday and I discovered why Haley hadn’t smiled at me all weekend…she was saving it as my birthday present! She smiled at me a few times and hasn’t stopped! It is so fun! Of course she won’t seem to do it when one of us is sitting there with a camera but it will happen. It’s the small things that make us happy right?

Check out our pictures of the last couple weeks! Today I figured out how to put pictures on here so I will be better about keeping up! There are a few of Haley with her girlfriends from last night’s The Office party that we had over here. All the girls wore their “Dunder Mifflin” outfits! There are also a bunch from our trip to Gilroy this last weekend….enjoy!

P.S. As of last Monday, the 17th (She was 4 weeks old then) here are her stats! 11 lbs. 7 oz. (the 95th %) and 22 inches long (70th %).

We’re back! We have been recovering, sleeping, eating and enjoying being a family! We were SO blessed over the last 2 weeks to have both of the grandma’s and Haley’s auntie Jen come to help us transition into this new phase of life. Now Justin has started going back to work “part-full time” while Haley and I have started hanging out just the 2 of us each day.

Yesterday I had a post C-section check up and was given the clean bill of health! The restriction on my driving is still in place but it sounds like gradually I will be able to venture out on my own starting next week.

Haley had lost a normal amount of weight at her 1 week check up, weighing in at 8 lbs. 13oz. Since then she has made up for any lost time and spends her waking hours this week eating! At her 2 week check up this morning she weighed in at: 9lbs. 15.5 oz!! It’s not quite 10 but by the time you are reading this…well, let’s just say our daughter weights 10 lbs!

We really are loving being parents! We think Haley has been taking it easy on us! It is so fun to watch all the faces she makes, including the few smiles she’s given us! She has been holding her head up and staying awake to visit with us longer each day.

We think she looks a LOT different than she did just 15 short days ago…check it out for yourself!
