Sweet Baby Girl

Thank you all so much for all your "Congrats" and telling me how beautiful our little Aubria Rose is.  

Life has been something else since our baby girl has been born.  I knew that we would love her but I had no idea that we'd love her so much.

She's been such a good baby.  She eats good.  She burps good.  She mostly sleeps good.  She even poops good.

It's hard to think that she was once inside me.  She seems so little when I look at her but then again she seems too big to have been inside of me.

The first night was a little rough.  Every night since then has been better.  Most of the time she sleeps 3 to 4 hours at a time at night.  The second night she was home, I slept better than I have in the last 3 or so months.

Matt has been awesome.  He helps feed her, bathe her, change her, wash her bottles, empty the diaper trash (stinky, stinky).  He talks to her, holds her, rocks her, reads her books, tells her that she's beautiful, and gives her kisses.  She's definitely going to be a Daddy's girl.

She loves her pacifier.

I think she likes her home.

One thing I was afraid of was how the dogs would react to her.  Princess could give a shit less either way.  Vinnie is jealous.  He seems depressed but we are going to make an effort to give him some extra special attention now that we have somewhat of a routine.  Ozzy has totally surprised me.  He is kinda of old and a grouch ass.  I thought for sure I'd have to ship him off to live with my mom for a couple weeks.  But, he absolutely loves Aubria.  When she cries, he whines or barks.  He always sits so that he can see her.  I am shocked with how much he cares about her.  

Aubri doesn't care about them barking.  I'm guessing she heard enough of it while she was in my belly that it doesn't bother her.

Matt has to go back to work tomorrow.  I'm fairly confident that I can get through the day on my own if I need to.  My mom has helped a lot.  Wednesday was our first night home.  Thursday I texted her at 4 or 5 a.m. and told her to come over whenever that we were awake.  She showed up at 7 or so and Matt answered the door in his boxers.  She watched Aubri and let us sleep until 11.  It was a rough night. 

I'm trying to get caught up reading blogs.  I promise I'll do better as soon as I can.  This being a mom thing keeps me busier than I thought it would.  I wouldn't trade it for anything though.

I don't know why but I don't think I've noticed how BLUE your eyes were until the last few posts! Beautiful eyes!

I think maybe your post will take on a different meaning... because this is literally going to chronicle Aubria's life from the get go. At the end of the year, you could have a book made and do that every year so she has sort of a year book for each year of her life. Just an idea! I know a lot of moms do that.

The grumpiest, grouchiest people are usually the ones who love the most and the hardest, thus cranking up their exterior so they don't fall as hard. Why not the same for our pets? Ozzy sounds so cute!

Ozzy is either concerned about her or wants to eat her as a snack. HAHAHAHA!
She's just so pretty.

Oh she is just so cute and I LOVE her name!! I love how Ozzy is concerned, my mom says all the time that my dog use to sleep under my crib and wake her up any time I was awake, upset, or she thought I needed something.

She is sooooo pretty! Love all the pics! And she's so happy! I hate that you have a depressed baby dog. That makes me sad. Yes, lots of extra attention should work. You can't explain the happiness that a baby brings into your life. It's the best feeling! I love that hubs is helping out too. Get some rest my friend! Keep posting pics for us, ok? xoxo
