Tummy Time Fun

Anna Todd is now 6 weeks old. She is changing and doing new things everyday. We started tummy time this week on her activity mat, and she is really starting to like it. How do I know? Because AT started smiling this week!!! Todd and I love to get her to smile and she even acts like she is trying to laugh!

Anna Todd Turns 1 Month

Anna Todd is growing like a weed. We had her one month doctor's appointment on Thursday (her birthday) and she weighed a whopping 10.02 lbs (75th percentile.) She was also 22.5 inches long, the 90th percentile. She is obviously a good eater because she has come a long way since we brought her home only weighing 6.12. Dr. Rux said all her newborn screening came back normal and he thinks she is perfect...I love it when he says that! She is becoming much more alert as her eyes get really big when you are talking to her. KK even thinks she is beginning to smile...sounds good to me! She is now sleeping in her OWN room in her OWN bed...Momma is obviously proud of this accomplishment. She is sleeping from 11pm to 9am with 2 feedings in between and usually can go back to sleep pretty quickly. And she loves her swing and sound machine the most. Momma and Daddy are loving getting to know her and can't remember what life was like without Miss Anna Todd!

Lovin her Daddy.

AT gives the sweetest kisses!

Starting to get used to bath time...but not her favorite.

"Talking" to Papa.

Janelle babysat AT while I went to my post-op appointment.

Go Red Sox

Mr. and Mrs. Endres of Cape Cod sent Anna Todd her first Red Sox cap. If you know her daddy then you know there will be many more posts of AT in Red Sox gear. She will have to be a member of RED SOX NATION to stay in the family LOL!

Our Red Sox family...Anna Todd was tired of taking pictures when I got the idea to take a family photo!

Just A Swingin'

We had only put Anna Todd in her bouncey seat until this weekend. She would only stay in her chair for 15 minutes...long enough for me to wash her bottles! We decided to try out the swing and she loves it! Our family was able to have dinner together while she swang for almost an hour. Momma started her out on level 5 and Daddy threw a fit! I still think she likes to go faster, but we will have to do that when Daddy is at work!

I forgot to mention the last time we put her in it she fell asleep...what a fabulous invention!

Couples Night

KK and Papa came back to visit Anna Todd for Easter. Friday night we were able to go out with friends while my parents babysat AT and Caroline (Amy and Brian's 4 month old.) Unfortunately, KK was a little busy to get any pictures of Caroline. I think KK and Papa each had a baby in their arms all night. By the time we got home both little girls were sleeping!

The Nixon's come to Fairhope

Todd had to go out of town to a meeting in Dallas this week so I my best friend from home came stay with me in Fairhope. Lindsay and her children, Kase and Lily, came to see Anna Todd for the first time. We had a great time eating out, bonding with kids and just catching up. One day it rained all day and we stayed in our pajamas until late fun and lazy!!!! Also, Amber and Travis came to see Anna Todd on Sunday on their way to Destin. We had such a good time with all our friends! Lindsay and I have already decided that Lily and Anna Todd will have to become best friends just like us!

Travis and Amber

Lori, my counterpart (I just wanted to make sure she was on the blog) She visits AT all the time!

Just a few recent pictures of Anna Todd. She is changing so fast! She weighed 7.7 and was 19.5 inches long when she was born. Two weeks ago at her doctor's visit she weighed 8.3 and was 21 3/4 inches long. You have to remember we brought her home only weighing 6.12 so she gained her weight back pretty fast. I think when we go back to the doctor next week she will definitely be 9 pounds.
