more introductions!

Last Sunday, some of Stan's family came down to meet Anniston, and we were of course thrilled to introduce her to them!

Here she is meeting her great-grandparents!!

Mrs. Glenda admiring Anniston (and vice versa)

She was mesmerized by Mr. Billy...could she be taking in the sight of a mustache for the first time?? ha

Stan's Aunt Lynne and Uncle Lamar came all the way from Texas!  
Anniston LOVED meeting you guys, and we were all so excited to see you and catch up!

Cute pic of her with Janjan :).


Anniston's been adjusting to life at home very well!  I'm almost afraid to say this, but she's just been too easy lately.  It seems that since we stopped her oral antibiotic a few days ago (!), she has been much more calm and mellow. (Not that she was that fussy but when she was, she could reach a note that I never knew existed.)  My mom told me that she was on the adult version of Anniston's antibiotic and that it really hurt her stomach...I hate to think that she was probably in pain from her medicine.  All in all, the medication did its job, and I've been enjoying seeing her bright-eyed and bushy-tailed these last few days!

Also, Anniston saw her pediatrician for the first time yesterday!  She was alert and squirming all over the table as he examined her, and he said you would never know what she's been through just by looking at her.  She's now 7lbs, 13 oz!  Ever since she started nursing our last week in PA, she has gained nearly an ounce a day!!

Here she is taking in her new playmat.

She really likes the butterflies :).

I loved ALL the picures! There is always a "glow" on everyone's face when they hold her. So glad you had a great visit with family. I think she likes her play-yard too!:)She looks so adorable! Can't wait to see her (you and Stan too) next weekend!

babywise is going good so far. however, i can't figure out how to incorporate it into nap time b/c she still sleeps A LOT on her own during the day!

i would love to meet y'all when your in town! a playdate would be so much fun!
