Busy, sleepy, eatey days

Okay, this post is a few days late. Sorry! It's been an eventful couple of days as you might imagine. Learning lots of new things, cooking for LL so she can focus on Marissa, entertaining visitors, and taking pictures....ooohhhh the pictures. LL's mother has been staying with us and helping on all fronts whether it be taking care of Marissa or Molly, our dog. But she's a bit of a shutterbug, so you not only have to be constantly aware that a camera is present, but you need to make time for pictures as well. Last night I slept for 9 hours though, so I can put up with some pictures!

Yeah, 9 hours. I think I finally caught up from being in the hospital. LL has been getting some 90 minute to 2 hour naps during the day and about the same at night, if not a bit longer. Marissa has been sleeping 3-4 hours at night, so that's a good start. We've been working on keeping her up more during the day so she'll sleep more at night. It's a process.

Ricardo and wife Jodi came over last night and we brought in sushi from Mini and Eric's restaurant, Rollapalooza. The food traveled down the street very well. We had a fun time and downed some wine. Good stuff. Then tonight, my buddy Joe D. (who came down to the wedding in Puerto Rico) and his wife who just had a baby themselves, bought us dinner from Sapori Trattoria, our favorite Italian place. It was delicious AND we have leftovers for tomorrow.

On Friday my sister Lori and bro-in-law Steve were downtown for a doctor's appointment so they came by for a visit as well. They brought MORE food for us including cupcakes and stuffed peppers (from my mom). Awesome stuff!

So it's been a busy few days with lots of naps during the day and lots of eating (I made crepes two days for breakfast and they are coming tomorrow as well!).  It's all good though. Now for the REAL reason you came by my blog today:

The last one is my favorite picture so far!

Your transition to parenthood sounds about right. I remember those days and they're exhausting, but oh so worth it.

Marissa is a really beautiful baby! Feel free to post pictures as often as you like! :-)
