Wow! Three months have flown by faster than any other three month period in my entire life. We found out our baby was a girl when she was welcomed to the world on August 19th, we went through the ups and downs of having to see her struggle while she stayed in the NICU for 3 weeks and 5 days, we experienced the joy of finally bringing our baby girl home, and each day that has passed Anna has brought more and more joy in our lives. We've enjoyed going to the doctor to see how much she's grown and loved putting her on the scale to see how much weight she's gained. I think it's the only time in a girl's life that we are celebrating every ounce gained! :) Anna and I took a trip to visit and meet her Aunt Laura for the first time on October 14th. The girls loved, loved, loved little Anna and of course Chris and Laura too! It was Anna's very first flying experience and she did great. She slept the whole time and didn't fuss one time. I was worried about the cabin pressure hurting her little ears but if it bothered her she never let on. meet her Uncle Josh when he came in for the weekend in late October. She fell in love with Unckie Josh. :) She got to We also got to dress her up for her very first halloween. She was a banana. :) Little Anna Banana. I also had the heartbreak of going back to work and leaving her at daycare. That day really was the worst day of my life. But, she doesn't know any different and the ladies at the daycare love little "Annita." We've also traveled up to my mom's hometown and Anna got to meet her family. One of the most touching moments was when she met Uncle Bubba. Uncle Bubba is my Granny's brother. My Granny passed away in July and didn't get to meet Anna. Watching Uncle Bubba hold and talk to Anna made me sad that Anna didn't get to be held and talk with Granny. I can hear her now, "Oh, what a little screwdriver." :) She has always called kids "little screwdriver." One of her funny sayings. Of course my daddy's parents are no longer around and my mom's dad, Pawpaw. I wish so much that they were here to meet her. I am so thankful that we live so close to Anna's grandparents. Literally blocks away from both my parents and Blake's parents. They of course adore her and love seeing and spending time with her. For that I am so thankful! Anna has grown so, so much since she was born. From 4 pounds 5 ounces to 8 pounds 11 ounces at her last appointment on November 4th. She is so alert and is starting to coo. It's so fun! I have thouroughly enjoyed the last three months and can't wait to see what else is in store for little Miss Anna.
