I can't believe it has already been a whole month! After I got over being tired all day long, and the allergic reaction to the antibiotics in the hospital (1 week after delivery I had 24 hours of flu like symptoms and then a fever, made for a really bad day), I felt so good. Really, almost normal. I am a little impatient to fit into my old jeans because everything else feels so good. I am still having back problems and am going to physical therapy for it, but it is getting better slowly. I really am amazed at how well Capri fits into our family. Like she was here the whole time. Makes me feel good that we decided to have a baby now. I am still getting used to the whole baby crying and how to deal with her, but I love having her here! Josh is such a big help too. He holds her and rocks her and even gets up in the night when I can't get her back to sleep. He doesn't do diapers, but everything else totally makes up for it. He plays with Rome and helps with dinner and is always asking how he can help. I feel on top of things, but it is so nice to know that he is willing to help whenever I need it. Here are some pictures of the last month.
My Valentine's Day, Sushi, Yum! And, Yes, Josh got me flowers. Amazing.
1 week old, playing with Daddy (this outfit has a ruffle bum too, so cute!)
2 weeks old, Rome looks huge!
All Bundled up, she loves it!
This is the car seat cover that Clare made for me. It really comes in handy keeping the cold breeze off the baby. It even kinda matches my car seat. Thanks Clare!
This is the car seat cover I had made. I picked out the fabric and a lady made it for me. I love it! It is so bright and girly. I can't wait for it to be warm so everybody can see it.
I could not wait to get this swing. I love it! She does not. She prefers to be held and only stays in the swing if she is asleep first. Maybe she will grow into it. At least it is tall enough that Rome can't climb in.
What a cute outfit! The shoes are huge and the tights just kill me! With Rome, Gramma and Papa Perotti
A Cutie, A brother with an evil grin. He 'helps' me change her all the time.
What a face, Laundry day. She spit up or pooped on all of her clothes and I had to get out a 3 month outfit so I could do laundry. It looks so cute and huge on her! Rome was in newborn size for like a week so I just love having a little baby. I even had to go buy a few outfits so she would have more than one thing that fit.
