One Month Old!

Yesterday was Gloria's one month birthday! We celebrated in high style with a trip to the doctor. She now weighs 9 pounds, 11 ounces and is 23 1/2 inches long. She had to get some blood drawn from her foot for a PKU test. She and I both cried. As sad as the test made her, it didn't last for long AND she slept for 8 1/2 hours straight last night!

On Friday, she had her first bath in the tub. Marc and I were both involved--it's not an easy task. She also greeted her first out-of-state visitor on Friday night when she met her Great Aunt Annette for the first time. Friday was also my first venture out of the house by myself for a bit. I spent an hour at Target and drove for the first time in 4 weeks.

As good as Gloria's sleeping is at night, her daytime habits are a bit different. She'll sleep, but she does not like to be put down. It's not so bad when there are people here, but it's much harder when I'm flying solo.

Liz. Marc and Gloria Jean. All sounds wonderful in that crazy topsy turvy way of the first few months. Can you believe some us us did this multiple times! Can you believe that everyone was right and these creatures really do take all your time! Pictures are great. Enjoy! Dru
