Three Weeks

October 6, 2011...today is my official due date with Cameron.  And instead of being pregnant, I have a sweet baby girl who is sacked out in her swing right now while mommy is blogging and daddy is playing Rage on the XBox. 

So, what is new in the Southerland house since week 2?  Cameron is more alert and stays awake for longer periods of time.  Her umbilical cord FINALLY fell off yesterday.  Tonight, we did the first real bath...she couldn't decide whether she liked it or didn't like it. 

One picture of the bath...didn't get many because Adam has this whole thing against naked pictures...he calls them "baby porn".

Post bath - she was not happy, but the point of this picture is to show how her hair is curling...she is going to have mommy's curly hair...poor kid.

Sleep - Cameron is sleeping for about 4 hours at a time now...which is making things a LOT easier on mommy.  And we have had to accept that our child is NOT a back sleeper.  She is going to be like mommy and be a belly sleeper.  Please do not take this opportunity to lecture me about SIDS.  I know.  But, I also know that when I put my child on her back, she immediately wakes up and starts SCREAMING at the top of her lungs.  But, she will sleep for 3-4 hours on her belly.  Unfortunately, I have one of those kids that just doesn't fit the textbook...shocker.

My sister came up on Monday and did some pictures for us.  I'm not going to post them all.  I did post them all on Facebook and if you are friends with me there, then you probably have seen them.

All in all, it's been a good week. She eats, she sleeps, she poops, and sometimes she stays awake for a couple of hours at a time...can't believe it's been 3 weeks already...and really can't believe Adam goes back to work on Monday. Cameron and I will have to figure out how we are going to manage this...all on our own. Yikes!

I absolutely love her! I think she looks like you. I just want to pinch her chubby little thighs! Thanks for sharing the photos. I think you're lucky about the cord staying on longer. Caleb's fell off after only a week and I was in full panic mode worried about infections and leakage.

Oh!!! Such a cute chunky girl .. just like my Rainbow baby was.

"Has it been 3 weeks already?" Yes it has.
Before you know it, you'll be saying what I'm about to say..."Has it been 17 years already?"
Cherish every moment, Momma. Time goes by too stinkin fast!

Hugs~

Those bath pictures are ADORABLE! Who knows, maybe she will end up with straight hair. :) I keep telling BB that I hope she ends up having daddy's hair. I was disturbed to find that I had straight hair at 5 months. She still may end up with a head full of curls. Cameron's pictures look great. I know you and Adam must be very proud. :)
