Happy Halloween! Miss Paisley had her 4 week checkup today. She now weighs in at 9 pounds, 15 ounces, and is 22 1/4 inches long. That's the 90th percentile for height-looks like she takes after her mother in that department. Posted by Picasa

I just couldn't resist. Posted by Picasa

Check out the finger. She's already posing just like her father poses for every picture. Posted by Picasa

We tried to deter Petunia from sleeping in the bouncer by turning it on vibrate, but she still enjoyed it. Posted by Picasa

Charles did this, not me. Posted by Picasa

more curls Posted by Picasa

Paisley has really curly hair when it's wet. I tried to get a cute picture of it, but it's hard to see how curly and cute it is. Posted by Picasa

In her boy outfit. Posted by Picasa

I thought that this would make a really interesting photo, until I looked at her image in the mirror more closely. Posted by Picasa

In her jungle gym. She's a little too young to figure out how this works. Posted by Picasa

We went to a pumpkin patch the other day so that Paisley could meet her cousins, but she didn't pay much attention to them. Posted by Picasa

Sorry about the cleavage shot. Posted by Picasa

She actually kinda likes her bath, although she doesn't seem too happy in these pics. Posted by Picasa

This was right before she pooed (or is it poood?) all over everything. Posted by Picasa

More cats

Achoo! Posted by Picasa

Cats in the cradle...

Charles didn't understand at first why I wanted the cats locked out of the baby's room and our room at night. I don't mind them in our room during the day, but I'm always afraid we'll wake up one day with Petunia and Paisley sharing the cradle.

2nd day home

So far, this baby thing has been pretty easy. She likes to eat, and then sleep. I've been having to wake her up at night to eat, then she tends to go back to sleep. Charles has been getting a full night of sleep (as long as I'm not too noisy), and I actually get quite a bit as well. She's really not much of a crier, and seems to be pretty content most of the time. Now that I've written this though, she'll probably turn into the baby from hell.

One of the things that really bothered me in the hospital (actually, the only thing-the staff was wonderful and attentive, the facilities amazing. There was even a double bed in the recovery room so Charles could stay with me at night) was how the nurses in the nursery kept talking about how BIG Paisley was. She's really not that big, just long. For instance, look how her newborn onesie is falling off of her. Posted by Picasa

Can someone who has either had a baby or knows a lot about it please explain to me why my feet are so fat? They never even looked like this when I was pregnant!  Posted by Picasa
