All Alone

Well, except for Danica!

Today is my first day alone with Danica. Tyler's back at work and my mom is back home. So far, so good.

Danica is now 8 days old. She is such a mellow baby right now and I love it. She is very alert too. Coming home from the hospital she weighted 6 lbs 4 oz and at her 5 day check up she weighed 6 lbs 15 oz. So she's likely over 7 lbs now!

Tyler is such a great dad. The nurses were surprised with how helpful he was at the hospital. Watching him interact with Danica at home is so cute too. She's gonna be Daddy's girl.

It was so great to have my mom here with me last week. I miss her and I'm sure I'll be calling her up a lot more often asking for her great advice and giving updates on Dani.

This is on her actual due date (Aug.5th). I thought her hands were so funny
This is Dani at one week old!


  1. You should let me know if you ever need anything or company, or even if you want to get out and go on a walk sometime!

    I'm glad it's going well for you! When my help left I turned into a mess after Hadley came, it was pretty hard the first few weeks. But having a baby in the summer has been 10 times better b/c then at least I can leave the house.

  2. I want to be there to hold her!!!!

  3. congratulations guys! She's a doll, you guys are going to have so much fun with her. I can't believe your labor was that fast and easy, lucky!

  4. congrats on surviving your first day alone!! It helps that the little girl you get to watch all day is absolutely adorable!!!

  5. Congratulations! She is such a cutie!


It's the cool thing to do.
