This has been a big week for us. Brian fed Annabelle her first bottle last night while I was making dinner. She was hesitant at first but ended up eating about 2 ounces. She had another bottle tonight that I gave her. I'm so glad she is taking the bottle, this way we can leave the house and not worry about her having to eat while out.
The big news is that last night we slept from 10:30 until 6:00am without getting up to eat! That was the longest night of sleep we have had which was really nice. I actually woke up around 3am and checked in on her via the web camera to make sure everything was ok. We are hoping for many more nights like that. Today was our first time leaving the house without Brian, I had my first post partum doctors appointment. Everything went well, I can now go back to exercising and normal activity which is great. I've been anxious to get on the treadmill and elliptical to get the last of the baby weight off. I also saw a little smile today that, from what I could tell, wasn't from gas. It was so cute it just made my day. I caught a picture of a little half smile right after that but couldn't get her to smile again. I'm sure that soon we won't be able to take a picture without her smiling (if she's anything like her mommy LOL)! I have included some pictures, some are from my cell phone so they are not clear. I love the one of Clyde watching over Brian and Annabelle, he's always right there when Annabelle is downstairs.
