Baptism and Christening

The baby was baptized on Friday.

It went great. It was very special. Especially when the baby pooped the very first second of the ceremony, and I had to pray that she wouldn't blow out on her white dress or cry the entire time.

Because let me tell you one thing about my girl, she is fastidious. As soon as her diaper is dirty, she screams like she is on fire! I'm talking a drop of pee and the diaper must be off asap!

As you may have noticed, I have not referred to her as anything. Now, I am usually a open book when it comes to the blog, but Kdubs is different (hence the reason I have to refer to him as Kdubs). He is letting me put pictures of her up here, but I had to compromise by coming up with an alternative name for her. Most of you follow me on facebook and know her full name, but tonight she is christening the blog with her new blog-name. There are many contenders, but I think this is the one I like. It may change:

I was going to do Cdubs but with her cheeks, I am thinking Chubs. But she will hate it when she is 13. I also call her Cheekies alot. And Kdubs likes calling her Chuck.

So what is your vote:
or Chuck

Pictures from our first few weeks

My favorite picture. This was taken when I was holding her in the back of the car after nursing. No, the car was not moving. We were parked waiting for Kdubs to run some errands. Love that I caught her smile.
This was one of my favorite outfits and it matches the quilt I made her.

From the shower, She will definitely need a game day outfit even in Austria.

Screaming at great Grandpa.
Us, at our first party together. We had a great time. She was an angel and I fit into my pre-pregnancy pants (a little tight but still fits!). For all those who followed my weight loss before I got pregnant: I am about 10 lbs away from being back at that goal, but I am not doing anything about it right now. Just nursing. I will work my way to working out and watching what I eat after the holidays.

Chillin in our Moby wrap

We are trying to get used to our Moby wrap. She doesn't seem to like to have her head in at all...but she loves being held so this is a great one hand saver! Any body else use the Moby wrap and have a suggestion on holds or how to use it?

The First Week

Baby has her days and nights confused.
We (and I mean me because Kdubs can't successfully nap during the day) are up all night. She is not necessarily fussy, she just doesn't want to be put down to sleep.

She nurses like a champ but my nipples aren't handling it as well. Cracked and I think a few plugged ducts from where my belly bandit was rubbing up against the bottom of the boobs. TMI? Sorry, there is no such things after birth.

I definitely have the weepies. But I know it is a combo of the impending move, lack of sleep, being overwhelmed by the baby and finding out that Kdubs will have to leave before us (which is good for the grandparents, doctor's visits, and getting the apartment in Vienna set up...but bad for me).

Have to run, time to feed...ouch.

fav pic from B-day

Kdubs chatting it up during the post delivery check.

Sorry to disappoint but all of the pics of me post delivery are hideous and shall not be on the interwebs.
