2 Weeks Old!!

I'm 2 Weeks Old!!
Can you believe it?? I hardly can. It feels like we just brought her home from the hospital. Wow, i have survived 14 nights (and days) with this cutie pie. Actually, she is a rather good sleeper at night. She actualy does a 5-6 hour stretch every night. Last night she had an amazing night!! Usualy she won't sleep until 2pm (and then does her 5 hr stretch), but last night she went to sleep at 10, didn't wake up until 1:30, went back to sleep at 4, and didn't wake up until 9:30ish!! Isn't that splendid. It is a blessing to have a good sleeper, and to have energy during the day! She makes such cute noises all the time, and really doesn't cry unless she has a gassy, sore tummy! She loves motion; the most soothing movement to her is up and down, up and down, so we do biscept curls with her and get a good workout!! She still eats alot (she will eat for like 2 hours... i know she isn't eating that whole time, more like sleeping half the time!!). Her eyes seem to get bigger and wider and more beautiful with every day that passes. She has endless funny expressions that she shares with us. We has seen little smiles, mostly when she's falling asleep or gassy, but we can't wait until she smiles in response to us!!! Chris and Mary are visiting with us until sunday and have been very helpful: sweeping, dishes, cooking, entertaining, holding and burping!! Well, enjoy the pictures, and leave a comment if you've stopped by; I LOVE READING THEM!!!
Adios from the Colvinson Clan (Corrina is the first true blood Colvinson!!)

This little red shirt (dress on her) was knitted by Auntie Candace! Cute Cute Cute!

Corrina likes to fall asleep in her swing!

Dad and Corrina rocking the day away!
This picture is about a week old. It was taken at her first bath!

i'm glad to hear her sleeping habits are getting better and better! Wow, she's precious. Something about that kid... I find it hard to be my normal, semi-bitter, exceedingly cynical self when she's around.

maybe you all should come around more. ;)

love, aunty Sarah

I had started to think since you havn't blogged for a bit, that Corrina was not being a happy baby so you weren't getting ANY sleep at all and couldn't get to the computer. But I'm so glad to here that she's doing good and not keeping you up ALL the time, just a lot of the time. She is just terribly cute too. And big! She looks more than 2 weeks old, I think. But then again, my niece and nephew's have all been tiny babies.
Love to all! Lori

Glad sleeping habits are good. Sleep is always needed. She is growing well. I hope all is well for you. I was getting worried that things were a bit hard, no blogs for a while. Glad to see you found the time to update us!

Basking in the cuteness,
