Sophie checked out perfectly at the pediatrician's visit. Dr. Soppas said she was perfect and to bring her back in next week for a weight check. Sophie's mommy did not do such a good job at the pediatrican's office though as she had a little melt-down (well, a big one really) when other little kids were playing too close to Sophia's head. Maybe it was the raging hormones or maybe it was just the exhaustion of the past hours kicking in but taking your 1 day old out into the big world kicked my maternal lioness instincts into hyperdrive and I was barely able to control my emotions during the relatively brief visit. Anyway, back to Sophie, have I mentioned that she is the most amazing, most beautiful, most alert and wonderful baby in the entire universe? She is. Belive it.
Jim and I are really enjoying our special time with her and bonding with her (even in the middle of the night - sometimes these moments are the best). Wednesday and Thursday night she cried through the night. A lot. We were thinking that maybe she takes after us in our night owl tendencies. Last night, however she slept for three hours straight (of course, I felt horrible for not waking her up to feed after two hours) but I really never thought she'd sleep that long.
We've had lots of lovely visits (Dee Ree and Pop Pop, Nanny and Poppy Oxenford, Amelia, Nancy and the Powell monkeys stopped by on Wed, too). Today we'll visit with the Snediker godfamily before they have to go back to Ohio and we have a home visit from one of the Bryn Mawr Birth Center midwives. We know there are many more visitors who want to come and see her and we can't wait to see you all! Thanks for spacing out your visits so we don't get too overwhelmed and have time alone with her, too. We really appreciate it. Thanks also to everyone who posted their congrats - we really appreciate it! Sorry we have not be able to respond to everyone individually but we are so grateful for all your well-wishes for her! Sophia sure is surrounded by a whole lotta love in this world (that tarot card reader was definitely right on that one)...
Anyway, here are some recent photos of the gorgeous girl. There's more on the smug mug site, too.
Now, we're off to enjoy Sophia's first Saturday!!!
