First Bath and Update on Samantha

Here is Samantha at 5 days old. She is so cute. She is finally sleeping good at night. The last 2 nights she has gone to bed around 10 or 11 and sleeps until 3 and then goes back to sleep until 8. That has been so nice because all of the nights before that she was not going to bed until 2 or 3 in the morning. That was rough. I hope she will continue her schedule and is not just teasing me. She went to the Dr at 4 days old and everything looked good. She dropped to 8lbs 13 oz in the hospital but was back up to 9 lbs 3 oz at the Dr so I was happy about that. So far she has been a pretty good baby. We are happy to have her in our home. The girls are loving her. They pick out her clothes everyday. Caitlyn is big help getting mom things. We gave her her first (well technically second because they gave her a bath in the hospital) the other night. Of course she screamed but it was quick. Here are the pictures from that.

This was a picture from coming home from the hospital.

Congratulations! She looks so perfect. I hope you are feeling well. Preschool starts soon, that will help give you a little break :)

She is pretty. I can't believe how big your babies are. I bet the girls are having a blast with her. I know Claire would.
