I don't do much besides eat and sleep but I keep everyone busy. Mommy and Daddy have to wake me up every three hours to eat, which means they don't get much sleep. Daddy says I am difficult to wake up like my mommy.
Do I really have to wake up?
Mommy, stop taking my picture and change my diaper already.
Time for a sponge bath. This isn't so bad. I can't wait until I can take a real bath.
Today Mommy and I got to go home. We were very excited, escpecially after waiting all day for the doctor to release us. There were many people at home ready to greet us when we finally got there. My first night at home went surprisingly smooth.The nurse is ready to wheel us out to our car. My eyes are open so I can see the outside world for the first time. Tia Renee and Tio Martin showed me my room for the first time.
I did not like my crib the first time I tried it, but I like it much better now. I don't sleep in it though because I sleep in a bassinet in my parents' room.
My first day was a busy one. I was very excited to meet everyone and take in my new surroundings. While Mommy was taken to our room, Daddy and I went to the nursery. I had my first bath and then I took a nap because I was exhausted from all the hard work. After my nap I went to see Mommy in our room. She was very happy to see me. We had lots of visitors throughout the day.
Aunt Patti, Grammy, and Nana are waiting for me to arrive. They are dressed this way because Mommy was hot. I took my time but Mommy says I was worth the wait.
Mommy went to visit Dr. Valenzuela earlier in the day and found out she was sick. Mommy did not know she was sick because she felt fine. I had to come early to make Mommy all better. Both of us are healthy now.
My name is Allison Grace. My adventure began on April 8, 2009. I was 5 pounds 9 ounces and 17.5 inches long. I surprised my parents and arrived early on my grandparent's 37th wedding anniversary. My mommy and daddy didn't expect me until April 23rd, but they were excited to meet me.
