One Month... Can I Get a " Do Over" ?

I have been a Mom for a whole month and made enough mistakes to last a life time! I was joking with my mom on the phone yesterday that I would love to start fresh with all that I have learned in the last 28 days. I guess that is why they call first kids your true experiments. I would also like to turn in my sick child for a healthy baby. She has a cold, a diaper rash, and thrush...I am wondering what else I can do to her. Oh I know, I know, it isn't my fault, but she keeps looking up at me with her little eyes and asking me in no uncertain terms to make it all better. I just keep wishing that I could.

Anyways... here are a couple of things I have learned thus far:
1. Not every cry means something...
2. Never say never because I do all things I never thought I would. Example: Giving up a shower for three days because I just didn't have time.
3. I am a sucker for a good cuddle...I love when she cuddles into my chest and falls asleep.
4. I am going against number two and saying I will never again be objective . . . my baby will always be perfect ;)
5. I don't function well with out sleep...normal sleep. But I will have to learn to function.
6. The Baker genes are very strong.
and 7. Jokes about me being chubby (Tyler) are not funny!

I hope my blog doesn't start to become boring (if it wasn't already) or baby obsessed, but hey this is our life right now and we are loving it.

Lastly, this months visiting teaching message was one how to protect and defend the family. I stand in awe at how amazing our Heavenly Father's plan is and how perfect the structure of the family is. I would be nothing with out my husband (he would be even less with out me lol) and the responsibility and joy that comes from raising children must be and is amazing. I thank my Heavenly Father every day, multiple times, for allowing me to be a mother.

"Rubber Ducky You're The One!"

We finally gave Emree her first bath in her bath! She has been sick and so she doesn't seem to like it very much, but she did okay in the warm water. Whether she liked it or not she was sure cute while she was getting all clean.

Two Week Stats!

Head: 35.6 cm
Height: 20.5 inches
Weight: 8 lbs 4 ounces

Both weight and height are in the low 40 percentile and her head is in the mid 30s. 
She absolutely hated her PKU test and I have never seen my little girl cry so hard... which makes me really dread the 2 month shots.

13 days old...

I could do a two week old post, but then I would be cutting my baby short a day. The last thirteen days have been really fun. We had my mom here, kenzie here, then Bonnie (Ty's mom), and finally the rest of the Andres. The only people left to meet our little bundle of joy would be the two missionaries (Tanner and Quinn) and my Dad and Easton. I know new babies sleep a lot, but I didn't know night time would be so terrible. I guess I shouldn't complain. I would rather be up with my baby then up because I am so uncomfortably pregnant. Right now Emree is really fun to show off... my mom already posted her adorable first Sunday outfit, but I just got the rest of the pictures back from the photographer so I win. I don't want to post the one we will choose for our baby announcement, but I will post just a few more.... hey- if moms and grandmas don't brag about their babies- who will!
