Raina smiles!

The other day Raina smiled at her mom on que. It was pretty cool! Also we visited our friends John and Julie and their daughter Ruby. Ruby learned how to hold an infant. Thirdly, John was very good at singing fun songs to Raina. It kept her calm for at least a little while.

Raina's first trip to the pool!

After several false starts we finally made it to the local community pool. Raina seemed to have very little reaction to being put in the water. I guess that's good...

Maybe some grandparent help wouldn't be so bad...

Its interesting raising a baby without having any family nearby. I didn't think it would be that big of a deal. I was wrong. I really wish we had more help. I think it will get better in couple of years when we meet other parents with kids.

Oddly enough, being off for the summer hasn't really helped. I should have gotten a job just to have something else to do. It doesn't help that they are redoing the walkway out front and they are jackhammering all day every day.

We will be going to Baltimore in a week. It will be nice to see some family and friends.

sinus surgery

Well I survived my sinus surgery. I really think this will stop my reoccuring sinus infections. Really hard to go to the hospital with a baby. James and Kristin are gracetiously watching the baby for us now@

Getting pretty tired....

We seemed to have slowed down in the number of pics we have taken. I wonder if I has something to do with our marathon of non sleeping! Raina got up about every hour last night. Today we took her to the chiropractor (sp?) .  The midwives say that a lot of babies get out of wack when they are born. So we went to this pretty cool guy who also gave Pam and I adjustments too.  Yes it was something to see a three week old to get a little tweak to the neck! Now she is paralyzed from the waist down. ;o) (Yeah I know "Don't even joke about that!" ) I tried fishing in Snapper canal -- I saw many fish but caught none.
