Learned

Valuable lessons my daughter has taught me thusfar:

1. When I think her diaper is filled completly, it isn't.
2. When you're angry, the best thing to do is grab your ears and claw at your face.
3. Even baby girls can shoot pee towards the sky.
4. A baby's grip can be the strongest force in the world. She won't let go, and you don't want her to.
5. Don't ever say, "wow, I can't believe she hasn't woken up yet." Those words are like a curse.

In her 17 days of exsistence, these are just some of the things she has taught me. It's amazing how much you think you know and then find out you were completely wrong or didn't know at all.

Bella had her 2 week checkup yesterday and she is a now confirmed peanut. She weighs 7 lbs. 6 oz. and is 19.75 inches long. This puts her in the 10th percentile for height and weight.

Great. She totally looks like her Dad, and the only thing she gets from me is being a peanut. Poor kid.

We are becoming braver and have now started taking her public places for short periods of time, (a trip to the grocery store here, dinner out there, etc.) But is it too soon, how soon is too soon for babies to be exposed to public places and all the germs that are out there?

    I'm probably not the greatest person to ask...

    Both my kids started going with me to ice rinks and everything by the time they were 2 weeks old.

    But both have had very few colds...so maybe it wasn't a bad thing.

    My doctor said that 6 weeks is the safest before you start taking them out in public, but I did not listen and my daughter got RSV and was hospitalized by 4 weeks. I keep kicking myself for thinking that I was smarter than my doctor.

    I had my son out at 3 days old... it's not like they're on the floor licking the carpet at that age. Take her out. Show her off to the world. As long as she's healthy, she'll do fine.
