Twelve days old.

Baby's first walk. Hannah was so happy to help push the stroller up and down the street!

Close-up of Aliah. Look at those big chubby cheeks! Don't you just want to touch them?!

Proud big sister holding the baby - this is what Hannah wants to do every morning as soon as she wakes up. It is really sweet, how much Hannah loves her baby sister.

I am no longer sick. Thank you God for antibiotics! :)

Aliah is doing well. Last night we woke up every 3 hours to eat, but other than that she slept just fine. Mike, on the other hand, stayed up until 5am for no apparent reason...

Right now Aliah is strapped onto me, sleeping in the Snugli. I love that I have both hands free and can still carry her around! The Snugli is my newest favorite piece of baby gear. Baby Hannah hated all forms of wraps and carriers, but I think this is quite convenient.

My mother misses us so much that she is coming back to visit again this weekend. She is actually coming in order to avoid spending yet another week with my dad's mother. Mike has been saying "My mother-in-law is visiting us in order to avoid her mother-in-law", but when put that way, usually people just don't get it.
Mom just left her house about an hour ago, so she should arrive at our house sometime between dinner and bedtime tonight.

Mike's last day off is January 26th. He goes back to work on the 27th.
That will be a hard adjustment for all of us.

Hannah thinks that today is opposite day. I just asked her to out on her shoes so we can play outside, and instead she put her socks and shoes onto her hands!
Listening and obeying have been huge battles in our house lately.

LOL at the visual of Hannah with her socks and shoes on her hands. Goofy! ;)
