Keeping busy

Everything is going well at the Tidd household. Anna certainly takes up a lot of the day, so we're establishing a new normal around here. Dad and Martha just spent 4 days with us, helping us tremendously with yard work, window washing, putting up blinds, wash, organizing the crazy amount of Anna's clothes, preparing meals for us and just being grandma and grandpa to Anna. It was great to have them here. I know they miss her already!

She had her first doctor's appointment Friday. She lost 8 ounces in the hospital, but has gained an ounce back. So she's a whoping 6 pounds 2 ounces. She grew a half inch and everything else looks good. She was a little jaundice when we came home, but she's looking a lot better now and will be looked at again on Friday. Her umbilical cord came off on Thursday, no more worries about that. She's pooping with the best of them (yes, this is our excitement now as I was getting worried b/c she didn't poop for 3 days, but we're totally over that). She can sleep for 6 hours at a time if we let her and will let us sleep about 4-5 hours at a time at night. She's really good tempered. I know all this could change, but she's been a really good baby for us.

Gary is starting his new internship position at GFS on Monday. This could be temporary as he's had 2 interviews with Calvin College and they've already been checking references. We're very hopeful that Gary will get this position at Calvin, but we're being patient and letting God do the work.

I'm feeling pretty good. I think I've recooped fairly well, still quite sore of course, but doing well. Don't hate me, but I'm back to my pre pregnancy weight (could be under that actually) and can fit back into some of my regular jeans. It's nice. :)

Otherwise we're doing well. Family and friends have been poking their heads in, we're keeping busy running errands, doing stuff around the house and just spending time with Anna. She truely is a blessing and it's so much more than we thought it would be.

Here are some more pictures for you! Enjoy.
