Ten Things I've Learned in the Past 3 Weeks

10. She may smile because she has gas, but I think it's because she recognizes my voice.
9. They grow quickly. That is no lie.
8. Car seats are heavy.
7. We have a ton of burp cloths, yet we can never find one when we need one.
6. Diaper bags: How to pack them, what to pack them with, etc.
5. You can live off little to no sleep (but that doesn't mean you are pleasant to be around).
4. For someone so small, she has more laundry than both Jeff and I combined.
3. You can NEVER have too many diapers.
2. Projectile poop happens. Prepare yourselves.
1. I love motherhood.

We're Alive!

Hello World, I've been disconnected for a few days now. Okay, not completely, but from the blogging world I've taken a short leave of absence. But all for a great reason!
K.T. is already 10 days old and I feel like the time has flown! To all of those people who have told me that time flies once you have kids, I feel like I can now relate. It seems like next week she'll be playing t-ball and in a month she'll be turning 16 - am I over exaggerating? Maybe, but hormones make you crazy like that.

My baby turned 1 week last Friday!

To all my women friends who have yet to have babies, BE WARNED, the post partum hormones are crazy! Do you hear me? C.R.A.Z.Y. One moment you are same 'ole, same 'ole, the next moment you're crying for no good reason. And to all my women friends who HAVE had babies, thanks a lot for not warning me about this part! Poor Jeff, he's in a lose-lose situation. Actually, I think the worst has passed (first week). Friday I didn't even cry once! Yeah!

K.T. has been such a fantastic baby - I still can't believe she is already here. Jeff and I spend a lot of time just staring at her and enjoying the cute baby noises that she makes. She hardly ever cries, only when she's hungry - oh, and if she gets a bath (not a fan...yet). She's gaining weight, which is the most fantastic part as we had a little trouble last week with eating. But we've established a routine and her appetite seems to be growing every day. I already think she's filled out some.

We have another pediatrician appointment on Friday to do her 2-week follow up (2 weeks?!? *sob* See? Crazy hormones!). I'm sick of doctors appointments. We had about 3 last week and I'm sick of seeing people poke and prod at my baby! :(

Jeff is off another week from work this week - thank God. He's such an awesome Dad, as I knew he would be. He handles a lot of early morning (3am on) feedings so I can get more sleep and he's so natural with her, it's amazing. While we have enjoyed visits from family and friends, my favorite time is when the three of us get to relax together. No worries, just quality time - because once Jeff and I go back to work, we'll miss this time and I realize that. I'm starting to see how people can be Stay-at-Home-Mom's now.... I don't want to leave my baby at daycare (tearing up).

K.T. and Daddy

Well, that's the latest. Hope everyone is doing well! Can someone tell me what day it is? or maybe what's going on in the world? How about the weather?

K.T. Koenig

Well, she's here! A little early, but I know she's mine if she was this "impatient" to get here. Not in the mood to write, so I'll post a pic instead.
