Makin' a Splash!

Here are some pictures from my first "real" bath. I wasn't so sure at first, but in the end I really enjoyed it! I've taken lots of baths since this one--a girl has to have a beauty routine!

My New Wheels

Sometime during my second week at home, I got to try my stroller out for the first time!
I absolutely love it! The pictures below are from my very first walk, but I've been on lots more since then. I haven't been awake for many of these excursions, but who can blame me-it's the smoothest ride ever!

Hazel and Buster come on all our walks now. They are learning how to walk nicely with my stroller, although Hazel is always telling me that I need to share the ride and that we're switching places at the corner!

I hope everyone else is getting to enjoy watching the fall colors in the same pimped out style!

Announcing ME!

So many of you have now received my official birth announcement seen here:
My mommy and daddy actually found this design on a website called inventing matilda which they found when they googled my name... i don't really know what any of that means except for googled... i google at them all the time!

To get the photo for my announcement (and subsequently this blog... yes, i know the word subsequently) my daddy did my first official photo shoot! i got to be a model for about 15 minutes and i gave him all my best poses... then i threw up on the backdrop. Here are some of the other photos from our shoot:

i'm big!

ok, so maybe not big by some standards, but i'm one month old now, I weighed 7lbs 12oz. at my last weigh-in and i can down a 5 oz. bottle of boob juice in about 15 minutes. while I was busy getting big, i have had lots of visitors, a few outings, and some "firsts." My mom and dad haven't given me much computer time to write about it all, but i'll try to fill you in on everything i did in my first month...

let's start with my big debut, my naming. well, actually i don't exactly know what happened at my naming because i slept through most (ok, all) of it. maybe one day my daddy will put the video online that my great uncle mike took (i'm not holding my breath). Aparently there was a letter my parents read to me. I guess i will just have to read it for myself when i get older, but if you want to check it out for yourself click here. Lots of people came to see me get my hebrew name which is Miriam Gavriella. Thanks to all of you who were there, sorry if i was too sleepy and small to see you that day. i'm sure we will get to meet soon. 

Here are some photos from that day:

big day

so i think i am training to be a wrestler when i get big - i gained 6.5 ounces in the the last two days! my mommy & daddy are excited about this because i had only lost weight since i was born. go me! 

also, what was left of my umbilical cord fell off. mom & dad had to filp a coin on who had to dispose of the stump - dad lost, but buster really wanted to be the one to handle it! now i have something that they called an "outie" 

that's all for now.

i'm here!

well sort of... my mommy and daddy have been taking care of me and haven't had a free minute (or hand) to get this started, but you can see some photos of me here in the meantime. ok, off to bed, or so I let my parents think ;)
