Today was my first day with my new nurses. Lucille started at 7 am and stayed with me until 3 pm. She is very nice and she said I slept almost the entire day. Mommy tried to get a little sleep this morning since she has been taking care of me the last few nights. She had a hard time letting Lucille take care of me without feeling guilty but she has to learn to so she can start back to work soon.
After Lucille left at 3, Mommy spent a few hours with me before Daddy got home. She set up my mirror that Aunt Kristin got me when she was here this weekend. I thought the baby in the mirror was kind of interesting but I started to cry and so did she - and that made me cry more!
Daddy and Mommy tried me out in my papasan for the first time tonight. It has pretty lights above my head that are stars that rotate around. It took just a few seconds and I was out! I didn't stay asleep too long though.
Dadddy has been saying I have smiled from the beginning but Mommy wasn't so sure. Tonight while she was holding me, though, when she smiled at me I smiled back. So as far as Mommy is concerned today was my first smile. Sometimes when I am sleeping I will smile and laugh a little. Mommy wonders what a six week old finds funny! (Maybe the thought of her parents having to change her messy diapers?)
Before my night nurse, Terry came to stay with me, Mommy and Daddy gave me my first sponge bath at home. After that I was pretty tired and slept until Terry showed up to take over. Mommy thought it would be really hard to sleep tonight because she thought she should be up taking care of me, but after two nights of not sleeping she fell asleep pretty fast and slept until the alarm work her up. She must have been pretty tired!
