11 Days

It has been 11 days since you were placed in our arms.

11 days of staring at your face and memorizing all your little details.

11 days of being a family of 3.

And boy have you changed in those 11 days.  You seem different all of a sudden the last couple of days.  You are more alert and you are starting to look around and see the world.  You give us smiles already – and it isn’t because of gas.  You respond to us.  It has been a pretty amazing 11 days.  You love sleeping on your side – hate to sleep on your back.  You don’t flinch when Mom grinds her coffee beans or uses the espresso machine.  You fell asleep to the vacuum cleaner last night.  You’ve managed to poop when Dad is away leaving Mom with the first blow-out…thankfully your Granny B was here and helped with the bathtub.  You only cry when you need something or are working the poo out.  You sleep well at night.  You give us 3 hours at a time – which is just perfect.  We had our first outting as a family – and quite appropriately it was to a beer garden here in Portland.  You were perfect once again.  We only got flack from one woman for taking you out at 8 days old…at least we haven’t let you experience your first flight…(another pilot took his 6 wk. old in a Jet Ranger…I still think it is awesome!).  Mom had her first beer in over 9 months and didn’t fall over.  It tasted so incredibly good.  You are just a perfect child in all respects.  Yes you cry – but give you what you want and you are incredibly content.

Your Granny B leaves tomorrow and I have no idea what I am going to do.  It has been so nice to have someone to help out during the day.  I’m still recovering from your quick shoot out the exit gate…so, Babe, it may be a little rough the first couple of days…but I know we’ll make it through.

Besides – we are in KC about 4 weeks…We can’t wait!
