What once was a family of 6, is now a family of 18!!!
Sadie, her Meme, and cousin Alex
We had a GREAT Anderson family Christmas!!! Sadie got to hang out with her Meme and Papah, her Aunts and Uncles, and all of her cousins!!! She pretty much slept through the whole crazy ordeal. She awoke long enough for her Aunt Vaughna to see that she's probably going to have blue eyes. And, HALLELUJAH!!! She pooped for the first time in 2 days. Aunt Vaughna actually VOLUNTEERED to change her... she's a professional mommy! Everyone got to hold her and love on her. All heck broke loose as everyone was leaving, though... She had HAD ENOUGH!! I didn't want to drive home while she was wailing, so we put her on a heating pad long enough to calm her down. We drove home, she was silent, and I just knew she was asleep. Nope, her beautiful eyes wide awake when we pulled into the driveway. We walked in, changed her diaper, fussed a little longer, and finally fell asleep around 12:45, maybe 1. After a while, you stop looking at the clock and just close your eyes and pray she falls asleep soon. I actually had fallen asleep patting her on the back, and woke up to a silent, sleeping baby. We slept until about 4:30 ish. We got up and ate and changed her diaper again. Went back to bed around 5:45. We slept until 9:45 ish...not too bad.
She slept a lot today... She fussed a littler earlier than normal tonight. Fine by us, the earlier and more she fusses, the more tired she'll be for bed time.
Tomorrow, mommy goes in for her 1 month checkup with HER doctor. I'm excited to take her and show her to all the staff. They're all anxious to see her, since I didn't take her in when I went to get my blood work done. WHICH, by the way, came back negative for Hep B, but it showed I have an immunity to the antibody for the Hep B shot... could mean my body will neglect the series. We'll see.
Daddy gets off of work at 12 on Christmas Eve, we're so excited to hang out with him in the middle of the week. Nonna and Aunt Dana will be here on Christmas day. Aunt Dana is SO READY to meet and hold her first niece!!! We're ready to see them, too.
Here are some random pics I took a couple of days ago. I needed to see if the outfit would still fit her... she was wide awake and alert for her modeling job. Her shirt says "I love grandma". Nonna bought it for her.

Before we left, I had to get her Car seat Base in my car...that went well, thank goodness. She also ate 4 OZ. of milk!!! Good golly, she was hungry. She's only been eating 2 oz. every 2 hours. Now she's sleeping longer at night and eating more...yea!
Driving with her was a little easier than I had imagined. It helped that my mom sat in the back seat, prepared to give her whatever she may need. She did great!! We went to the hospital first, got her blood work done...she's not a fan of the heel pricking, and squeezing of her heel to get a whole lot of blood out...but she did really good. This was her 5th time to get her heel pricked for blood work.
We were only in there maybe 15 minutes, then off we went to Mommy's dr. She stayed in the car b/c the COOOLD wind was just blowing too hard. I'm so glad Mom was with me... The wind almost knocked me off the sidewalk, I can only imagine carrying her in her car seat...ick.
She was sacked out. I fed her, thinking she'd be starving. She only took an oz. She's still sacked out, but I have a feeling she'll wake up raring to go soon.
Mommy is tired, today, but I'm not sure why...I slept as much as she did last night. 10:30 to 11:50, 12:30 to 4:20, and 5:30 to 9. I don't have ANY trouble getting to sleep these days. If I could just teach her to push through those gas pains without screaming... we'd be GREAT! We're getting there.
This is us, getting ready for church for our very first time. Mommy got up at 8 a.m. and Daddy watched the little one while Mom got ready. Once Mom got ready, it was Sadie's turn. Daddy helped give a bath and dress the princess. She was supposed to have pink tights on, but Mommy and Daddy didn't want to totally make her hate us forever. So, socks worked.
Once we got in the doors (maybe 4 feet into the front doors), we were bombarded with hugs, and comments like "Oh my gosh, look at all that hair" and "Wow, she looks just like Craig" and "Oh my goodness, she's just beautiful". All things we have heard and KNEW, of course, but still fun to hear some more.
We finally got into the sanctuary, and she was visited some more by others. Church started and she slept pretty well through the music (all stuff she was used to hearing, of course). Once it quieted down a bit, she started grunting and moaning as if she needed to take a poopy. She got pretty loud, so Mommy took her out for just a few minutes. And of course, we missed Pastor Richard announcing her presence at church, but I didn't feel like we needed to introduce everyone to her set of lungs she obviously inherited from me. :) She slept in Mommy's arms, but stretched a whole lot, too, making funny noises.
Finally, we got to the end of church, we put her in her seat, and EVERYONE came running. We almost had to stay the next service, too...people just kept coming up and adoring her! We didn't mind at all. We stayed out in the link for a long while talking and continuing to show her off, and finally left at about 12.
We got home, took her dress and bloomers off, and fed her and put her in her swing. Mommy and Sadie slept for about 3 hours straight. We were exhausted. Daddy was tired, too.
It was a great day! And we had so much fun introducing her to our church family... Everyone just loved her, and she made Mommy and Daddy so proud.
