Me llamo Rocky

Eva's First Week

As for now, my blogs are probably going to be a lot less wordy and include more pictures.  One, my hands are full and barely ever get a second to escape.  And, two, we have been taking so many pictures of Eva that it is hard to decide which are better than others. 

Anyway, home life with Eva is wonderful.  No, I'm not sleeping at night, but I'll take it all, good and bad, just to have her here with us and in my arms.  Rocky has been a great help and is adjusting very well to having her around.  He is dying for a walk, but I think he understands how tough it is for me to even get something to eat, let alone leave the house.  He has jealous moments, but I am really proud of him for how well he is understanding the situation.  He has been very curious about her and her baby stuff (especially the bouncy chair).

And, I don't think he minds sharing mommy and daddy either

(Notice pic below, this is one of Dana's most favorite moments.  He could not wait for Eva to be born so that he could lay with her on the couch and watch football together.  This was their first Charger game as Father and Daughter.  How cute!)

Since Eva has been home, we have had many visitors who were dying to meet her.  And, we were dying to introduce her to everyone.  First, Jen and Carlos stopped by:

Then, Collin and Liz:

Our wonderful neighbors, Frank and Vera:

Elizabeth and Sam:

And, Eva's Auntie Lori and Aunt Steph (yes, Lori is Dana's cousin, but I think her and Steph will be great Aunties to Eva)

Anyone else who hasn't got a chance to make it over yet, you are more than welcome to stop over, we would love to see you.  Just be sure you aren't sick and you wash your hands :)  Gotta keep our baby girl healthy and strong.

We will have more visitors traveling from the midwest in the next months to come.  My mom, aka "Granny" is on her way here right now and will be visiting for 10 days.  She is going to be a great help, I can't wait for her arrival!

Oh, and to prepare for her arrival, we thought Eva would enjoy a nice little bath so she could be fresh and clean for her Granny.  Dana took on the role of bathing her and he did a wonderful job.  Not sure she enjoyed it much, but she is as clean as a whistle.
