Round Two

I am starting to really dislike going to the pediatrician! Lucia seems to get hurt every time we go. Yesterday she had her heel pricked for some sort of screening, and it seemed to take forever for them to squeeze enough blood out of her little foot. As a parent it is horrible to stand by and watch your baby scream like that and not be able to do anything! I think Diego had a harder time than I did! She doesn't really cry too much right now either, so any crying breaks my heart! Other than that, things are great. She is a wonderfully healthy baby and is now weighing 8 lbs 3 oz. She loves baths and has some awake time in the morning and evening when she likes to observe what she can. She even seems to be sleeping better at night. I do seem to think that she is going to be daddy's little girl! Her favorite place to sleep is daddy's chest!

The First Week

Well, our lives have definitely changed! We have had some interesting moments this week, especially as far as diapers go. Our challenge is going to be knowing when she's ready to be changed, because we have been wrong a few too many times! Lucia spends a lot of time asleep or eating, and we have enjoyed every second with her. Even when we have to wake up in the middle of the night, it's all worth it when you bend over her crib and she's staring at you with those beautiful little eyes. I am feeling much more rested and Diego has been a true blessing this week. I have had to send him to the store to buy something every day! Here are some more pictures. We are proud parents, so we have taken hundreds of pictures already! I can't believe a week has already gone by!

Lucia is here!!!!!

Lucia Raquel Caceres was born on July 10th at 10:16 p.m. after what seemed like a very long labor! She weighed 7 lbs 15 ozs and measured 20.5 inches in length. As you can see, she has a beautiful head of hair and I think my big feet! I will be adding more to the blog later, but wanted to get some pictures out ASAP, so here they are!

Happy 4th of July!

No baby yet, but we had a lot of fun last night at the Addison Fireworks Show. I'm not really sure if that is the right name, but I made it up. We drove over to a field next to a small airport and had a picnic and watched old airplanes and fireworks. Our friends from the branch invited us, so we had a great time. Apparently I can do anything, even if I'm 9 months pregnant. Here are some photos of the event!

39 Weeks!

Okay, so this is our first entry! I am trying this blogging business out, and hopefully we can be consistent with it! We are now 9 days away from the birth of our baby girl! The days go by slowly, but at the same time we realize that she could be here any day now. We think it would be really cool if she was born on the fourth of July, but I don't think my doctor would be as enthusiastic! This first blog is going to be short because I am testing it out, so check back for the next post!
