Life with Lola

Lola is now five days old. She is the sweetest, most beautiful baby. She loves to snuggle on your chest and hates being on her back -- which makes sleeping rather interesting. She particularly does not like diaper changes or the actual process of being swaddled, although she does like the end result.

We are slowly adjusting to life with Lola, although sometimes it still does not seem real that she is actually ours. As far as sleeping, some nights have been good, others have been rough. We are still working toward getting her to sleep on her own and not needing to sleep in our arms or on our chest. It's a learning process for all of us.

She is growing up fast and changes every day. She lost her umbilical cord yesterday, at four days old!

We have been enjoying every minute with her so far and Ray is not looking forward to going back to work Monday. We're just trying to relax as much as possible and allowing ourselves a lot of time to get to know our daughter.

We're still very much in awe -- and very much clueless about how to calm a screaming infant. But, we're learning!
