Last night (well, more this morning) Ali slept for five hours straight! After waking up at two or two-thirty and not going back down until four, she slept until nine. Until then the most she’s slept has been three or three-and-a-half hours. Needless to say, I was a very happy mama in the morning.
It’s ninety-five or a hundred or so degrees here today. We have no air conditioning nor even a fan and it’s getting to be pretty miserable. I’m glad it’s just about five and will be starting to cool down. I miss hanging in the pool but it would probably be too hot for that too. It’s definitely too hot for a baby to be outside. Well, I guess I don’t know that but that’s what my instincts say. We might head to Target pretty soon…just for the air conditioning and a chance for me to get out of the house. We’ve been home a week and I’ve only left twice; the doctor on Friday and the grocery store on Monday. This hat wave was not well timed with my tendency to go a little stir-crazy.
Last night Tony’s Aunt Susie, her husband Steve and their boys Payton and Quinton came over with Billie for dinner. Amazingly, we forgot to bring out the camera. Very sad, but they’re visiting here from Missouri for eight days so we’ll see them again and be sure to snap some photos then. It’s always nice to meet more of the Swalla family, both me and Ali, and to show off the beautiful baby girl we have been blessed with. Speaking of showing off…
The first three pics here are from yesterday….one week old! The rest are from today; the "naked" ones this morning (note the lack of umbilical cord!), the last, sleeping one, during an afternoon nap. I hope everyone "out there" is well and doing their best to stay cool!
