Myrah's 6th Day

Right... I don't specifically plan on updating my blog for every day that Myrah ages, but today (and yesterday) were particularly good days, and she's a bit of a sensation right now so I thought there might be a few of you hungry for some fresh pics of the fresh arrival (I used to be a Fresh Specialist, so I know a bit about these things... They are time-sensitive!  That's what you get for letting me make up my own job title...!).

Yesterday we took our first family excursion to Grandma and Grandpa's house for Mother's Day.  How lucky we are to be able to celebrate as a complete family this year for the first time (because we all know 9+ month pregnant Teri was getting a little crabby about it!).  Myrah did fine in the car both ways as babies do, and Grandma and Grandpa were so excited to see her!
Oh, you big old softy!

Myrah's umbilical cord fell off!

Rocked out too hard at Grandma and Grandpa's house!
Today, Lydia visited for lunch and also brought her camera to take some photos.  They are much nicer than anything my iPhone can do-- speaking of that, if anyone wants to get together and pitch in to buy us a camera, we'd love that!! We didn't get dressed up for the occasion, because I hate those contrived Anne-Geddes-style newborn photos.  We wore what we were wearing and Jon stopped working long enough to pose for a few informal snaps, because that's how we roll around here.  (Sorry Myrah, your parents are hippies!).  Here's a handful of our favourites, if you'd like to see them all you can Click Here!

Then Teresa the public health nurse dropped by. She answered all of our questions and then weighed Myrah, who is nearly back to her birth weight at 7 lbs, 1.5 oz.  It can take up to three weeks for that to happen, so I guess we're doing ok!

And finally, today was Great Auntie Joan's birthday, so we sent her a special photo.  Happy Birthday!!  So glad you were here to meet Myrah shortly after she came into the world.
