Little Rose

1 week later and we are officially fatigued, confused, and more happy than we have ever been. This week has been crazy with new baby, Christmas, and family and friends. We finished the week and are now ready to settle down and be a family of three.

Little Rose is already 8 days old and doing extremely well. Baby Milmonster's internet name is Little Rose. Sorry for those who want her full name, Rose is her middle name. Leave your email address and we will let you know. Here are a few pictures of our little miss for your enjoyment. She was a little jaundice for the first few days and had to stay under the lights for about 24 hours. Once she got use to it, we think she liked it. Nice and warm and she got a tan!


Sleepy girl. One of the many faces she makes after eating. See how tiny her fingers are next to daddy's ring.
By the way...we have been married 3 years today! Happy Anniversary Sweetie!

Rose is my sister's name. Actually her name is Rosemary, but we all call her Rose. Okay, looking forward to getting the email with her REAL name in it. :-) chee_mar@yahoo.com. She's so precious! Keep up the good work, and hang in there for the next year or so- that whole adjusting to being a parent and not really getting sleep phase gets easier. :-)

Susan-
Congrats! Newborns are so precious! The first week is definitely a whirlwind...well, the first couple weeks, but they get more normal and routine before long. And before long you will feel more like your normal self. How long is your maternity leave for teaching? We would love to know her real name. danerica@gmail.com
Congrats again! I am so excited for you!
