Air Out

Lillian got some gnarly diaper rash as a sequelae of the antibiotics I'm on for my mastitis, so we're trying to air her out more often.

This picture shows off her dimples.

She definitely got the Calder eyebrows.

Uncle Jason

Tyler's brother Jason and his girlfriend came to visit us for the weekend. Lillian isn't the only one who likes to nap after every meal.

I was surprised at how excited Jason was to wear the baby sling. He walked all around downtown wearing it until it got too hot. (Thank you Allison, by the way. The sling is so nice, and Lillian really likes being in it.)

Sometimes, she gets the wiggles when she's asleep.

Grandma Marti's Visit

The pediatrician told us that she should be having tummy time every day when she's awake. This was our first attempt. As you can see, it went pretty smoothly.

She hated it.

Her umbilical cord came off, and so Grandma got to give her her first bath at home. Lillian really wasn't quite sure what to think of the whole affair.

The post feeding stupor... which she doesn't do very often anymore. She always wants more. The lactation specialist says that because I "have enough milk to feed four babies," I'm never empty and I guess the fat part comes at the end. So all Lillian is getting is quickly digested carbs. She (the lactation specialist) suggested that I do one sided feedings. That is, instead of offering both sides every feeding, just offer one over and over again. We'll see how that goes. Posted by Picasa

Nap Time

It's the naping house where everyone is sleeping.

Lillian had her arm over her chest too but moved it as soon as I wanted to take a picture.

All dressed and ready to go.

Burping Faces

She makes the funniest faces when she's being burped.

It's always a very fine line between happy and screaming.

This one's my favorite face.

Hospital Pictures

I'm showing Tyler how to swaddle. It was very important to Lillian to be swaddled for the first couple days. Now, I don't know if she just grew out of it (in five days) or if it's this wretched heat, but she'll have none of it.

Thank you Claire for taking pictures.

Lillian Ball

She's here!!! We moved last Friday and packed our camera in a box. Bright and early Saturday morning, I went into labor so we couldn't take any pictures at the hospital. Mom and Claire and Liz brought theirs, so those pictures will be coming shortly. But anyway, these are from the day we brought her home (after we found the box with the camera in it).

I think she looks exactly like Tyler. Tyler thinks that everyone keeps saying that only because she very little hair. The pediatrician gave her an A+ and except for the fact that she keeps forgetting how to eat, she's such a good baby!!!

This is what happens when you put one little baby and five kids together. Well, actually four kids. The youngest is being held by grandma as he was having some problems with the "touch soft" command.

And for good measure, Maddy in Tyler's moped helmet.

More pictures to come, I promise!!! Posted by Picasa

Seagull at Avila

We went to Avila Beach again yesterday. While there, we were being harassed by this seagull, so Tyler tried to throw some of the little rocks you see in the sand at it, or near it rather, to scare it away. However, far from being scared, the seagull thought that Tyler was throwing bits of food his way and would nip at all the rocks thrown at him only to find that they were rocks and not food. It was actually quite amusing, so I took a picture. Posted by Picasa

Happy Fourth of July!

Our Fourth started out with the Stake pancake breakfast in Atascadero wherein we sang all three verses to the Star Spangled Banner (my favorite song to sing). I have recently been informed that there is a fourth verse. I'm not surprised they leave it out of the hymnal though, what with the references to bloody footprints and so forth.

Tyler wanted to take a picture of me in front of our house.

We went to Cayucos to watch the fireworks. They set them off from the middle of this pier. The sunset was beautiful and the show wonderful. The only spoiler was the group of small children up on the bluffs behind us who were throwing water balloons (at the urging of their somewhat inebriated parents) at unsuspecting passersby. Oh, and all the illegal fireworks that were being discharged 10 feet away from us. I'm really surprised no one got hurt.

We went with a small group of friends including Isabelle and Mark. My friend Rileigh and her husband Ben came up from Santa Barbara for the day, but oddly enough, I didn't get any pictures of them. I've only spent one fourth of July away from my family in Orange County, so it was a little sad, but I had fun nonetheless. Posted by Picasa

New Toy

For some time, Tyler and I have been weighing the pros and cons of purchasing a moped. What with gas prices being what they are offset by the amount of time we have left in San Luis, it all worked out.

Scott, the man we bought the bike from, threw in this helmet for free.

An alleged 150 miles to the gallon. Not bad.
