Well, we've reached the two week point, and her check-up was good!!! She's back above her birthweight, and she's sleeping in 4 hour chunks (sometimes we still have to wake her up to eat!) so we're feeling some more energy also! Which is why it's taken so long to post... we've been trying to catch up with errands, etc... But the family seems to be doing well!
Delaney's been doing a lot of sleeping.....
And, according to everything we've read... smiling when she passes gas...

Well, once we realized it was Tuesday, we realized Delaney's already one week old! We've had some visitors, all of who have been very helpful, bringing food, cleaning, organizing. Things seem to be going well so far, except Delaney seems to enjoy late night television and eating breakfast at 11am... not really what we're used to. Hopefully this is not an early indication that she's going to be a party girl. Here's one pic of Lola and Papa Houle at the hospital and another of the Whitmore family visit.
Time for a nap!
Time for a nap!

Well, we've been home for three days now, and we're sorta starting to figure this out a little bit! Delaney's not up much for sleeping at night, that or she's just hungry all night long (we can't figure out the difference yet)... but we're finding ways to sneak some naps in during the day. Grandma and Grandpa Whitmore helped us from Thursday night through Sunday morning, and Uncle AJ and Aunt Monica showed up with dinner on Saturday night. While Delaney lost some weight initially, she's definitely coming back up to speed! Ollie is doing great!

Well, Delaney Ann was born at 1:20pm on August 11th... Kelly said it may be the best anniversary gift yet. Anyways, things are going fine... she loves to eat! The delivery went really well.... Kelly was awesome, and with the help of a mild narcotic, was able to go epidural free, which was a goal of hers. Total labor time was around 9 1/2 hours. Delaney weighed in at 7lb, 14oz... no length measurement yet.
Since I have some time to post while Delaney feeds, I will add more pictures as the time comes... and I will start sending out the word about the web updates.
