Is this thing on?

I know, I have not been a good blogger lately. We have had so much company, phone calls, work, and that whole new person around the house, it doesn't leave much computer time! Now that Stephen has gone back to work I will probably be back to blogging to pass some time in the evenings.

The past two weeks that Stephen has been home have really not been exciting. I can sum them up for you really quickly: guests, sleeping, movies, staring at Brianna. There, now you are all caught up.

But last week we did get out of the house a bit. We took Brianna to her grandpa Steve's house to meet some of her family. She slept the whole time we were there, as she has a tendency to do, which gave us time to chow down on burgers and hot dogs, and play a few rowdy games of Redneck Golf.

Saturday was Stephen's first day back at work, and Josh was in town staying with us, so we did what any good mom and uncle would do - took Brianna to her first yard sales!! We saw mom and dad while we were out, and got some great deals, so it was definitely worth it. Brianna was the center of attention (thank goodness it's finally off of me) and she got some pretty cool books and CDs. Sunday she went to Granny and Granddaddy's for the first time for lunch. You can see some cute pictures at dad's blog, particularly of Emma and Jessie meeting Brianna for the first time. Stephen got home from work around 5, and we went for a lovely walk around the neighborhood and just chilled for the night.

Today was Brianna's two week doctor's appointment (already!?!?) and it was great! Mom met me at the doctor's office since Stephen had to go to work. Brianna has already gained almost a pound! She is now 7 pounds, 12 ounces, so like mom said, I don't have to worry that I'm not feeding her enough! She is chunking out in her cheeks and thighs! It makes me want to just smooch her all over and gobble her up! The doctor said everything looks perfect in regards to her health. Then I took Brianna to work with me so I could catch up just on a couple of things. She behaved quite nicely for all of my coworkers and I was able to get a lot done. Well done, Bri!

Tonight I wanted to take a walk but it has been raining off and on for a few hours and now it's too dark. Instead, Bri and I chilled on the couch, watching TV and reading together. We have read two books together so far (Called to the Other Side and 10 Things You Should Know About God and Life) and we've just started a new one. She's really interested in these books, don't let her snoring fool you. Then I laid her down and cleaned the kitchen which hadn't been done in a least two weeks, probably three. Now I'm just waiting for her to wake up and eat and then we'll skip off to bed!

I'm really going to try to make this blog not ENTIRELY about Brianna, but it's not like my days have been filled with much else recently!! I just have to post some pictures, so if you're not interested, you may leave now.

First doctor's appointment: 4 days old!

First walk: 10 days old!

This is pretty standard at our house now:

Brianna's Aunt Jenn Kl.!

The black and white picture of Stephen and Brianna is great! I've got to get back by the house she is changing everyday. Love you, Brianna and family!

The GREATEST! You keep sending your people to my blog and I'll keep sending mine to your blog (there's a lot of overlap there)!
