Two Weeks

Anne Morgan was two weeks old Monday! I stopped by her doctor's office yesterday to check her weight since she doesn't have her first appointment for two more weeks. At two weeks she should be back to her birth weight of 7lb 7oz (she was 6 lb 15 oz when we left the hospital). Well...not only had she gained all of it back, she surpassed her birth weight! She is now 8 lb 1oz!! Needless to say I was so excited. The first week I was a nervous wreck that she wasn't getting anything to eat from me and was just starving. There was no doubt when my milk came in though and I guess it's safe to say her feeding is going well. 

Tomorrow Grammie and Pop are headed our way for the day. Anne Morgan and I sure are looking forward to it. We will just hang out and go to lunch somewhere. Late tomorrow afternoon we will head to Montgomery for the night. Trey and I are going to a Biscuits game with others from his office (if it doesn't get rained out) and his mom is going to babysit Anne Morgan. I'm sure I will be ready to leave the game ASAP to get home to my baby girl. I am certainly looking forward to the game though, don't get me wrong. I love going to the Biscuits games but I haven't spent several hours apart from her yet! Friday when Trey gets off of work we are off to the beach for the weekend. I know we won't be able to do much but it will be nice to get out of town. We are fortunate to have a place to go whenever we want and while I may not be able to take Anne Morgan on the beach yet or get in the pool, there is a really nice balcony with lounge chairs that will be calling my name. I'll still be able to get some sun up there! Hopefully my sister and her family will be able to come over and play and my brother-in-law too...he hasn't met Anne Morgan yet. Have a good weekend!

Doesn't she look so cute in pants? We tried these on her the other night and I couldn't get over how cute pants were on her! (I know she's fussy in the last picture but it was the best one I could get of her in the was time to eat and then to bed!)

A Few More

Oops! I did have a picture of Anne Morgan with Grammie (my mom)! Here's one and a few more from the big day. I'm working on some more recent pictures. It's hard to believe that we came home a week ago today.

Sweet Angel

We have had a wonderful week. I have so many pictures to sort through so I thought I'd add a good bit now. There is so much to say but I know you would rather just look at the pictures so enjoy! Anne Morgan has had an eventful week and lots of visitors. Here are some of them. She is such a good baby. She sleeps really well and doesn't cry very much, only when it's time to eat and once she does she either goes back to sleep or stays up and looks around, stretches or watches the dogs. By the way, the dogs LOVE her!! And I think she likes them too...she isn't bothered one bit by the kisses and nudges she gets from them.

Cousin Christopher was sooo excited!!

Even the Chick-Fil-A cow came to visit!

This was such a sweet moment...cousin Hunter and Aunt Caroline were singing to her

On Daddy's birthday Anne Morgan had her first trip to J&M Bookstore! Many more to come!!

MOM: I just realized I don't have a picture of you with her!!!! How is that possible? Guess that is just one more excuse for you to come over :)

She's Here!!!

I am pleased to announce that Anne Morgan Howell is here! She is just perfect and I could not have asked for a better delivery. She arrived on Monday July 13th at 3:15 pm and was a perfect 7 lb. 7 oz. and 20 1/2 inches long. We are still trying to get over the head full of dark hair that she has!! It's so pretty but we were not expecting any hair at all so it still seems crazy to look at the sweet little angel with all of her's about an inch long already! We are leaving the hospital later this afternoon and I cannot wait to get her home. I can't wait to introduce her to her four legged brother and sister. Hopefully we will get to take the borrowed computer power cord home for a couple of days and I'll be able to update more as we get there. It looks like she wants to eat so I'm going to go for now. We'll be back soon. We are so blessed and could not ask for anything more.

There are a million more pictures to add so I will have to take some time to sort through all of them. Hopefully I can get them on here soon...I'm so anxious to share her with all of you!

Still Pregnant...

I promise I'll be back. I happen to be in Montgomery at my mother-in-law's house right now so I am using her computer. Isn't it crazy how lost we are without computers these days?

Trey and I had a bit of a false alarm last week. Unfortunately I am still pregnant!!! I had started "progressing" so soon that we really thought Anne Morgan would be here by now. I guess I really should be more patient b/c technically I am only 38 weeks (I know the ticker at the top of the page says otherwise but that's b/c I changed it to the day we will induce). As a result of our trip to the hospital last week Trey wanted me to take it easy so I didn't go to work the next day. I fully intended to go back the following day but my boss didn't want me to. She has been so worried I'd go into labor on her watch that she was freaked out too! Soo, I've been off of work for about a week now. Hopefully Anne Morgan will decide to come on her own before Monday so I don't have to use up any more of my time off before she comes.

Next time I update it will probably be with pictures of the little one! Since I don't have access to a computer right now I probably won't be able to update until then but I'll make sure I do once she's here!
