The Past Week at Home

The past week Anne Cambria has really developed her own little personality. She only cries when she is hungry (which she has no patients when she is hungry...just like her Daddy). I am sure she will hit a fussy spot at some point, but so far she has been an absolute angel. Here are a few pics from the past week.

Anne Cambria was 1 week last Thursday! She is truly an angel. We are totally smitten with her!

Anne Cambria Burk

Anne Cambria made her grand debut at 11:40pm December 9, 2010. She weighed 7lbs 3oz and was 19in long. She has a head of blonde peach fuzz and for the time being, she has blue eyes (we'll see if they change over the next couple months). She pretty much looks just like her Daddy, but I try and claim a few features that I think she has of mine. Labor was not bad. It was just slow.....and pretty much uneventful except for a few drops in my blood pressure. Other than that, once Dr. Webb broke my water at 12:50pm, labor really began. Thank the Lord for epidurals. When we left the hospital Anne Cambria was down to 6lbs 12oz. She went for her 2day check up on Tuesday and she had gained 5oz, so she was up to 7lb 1oz. She has been a fabulous baby so far. She sleeps most of the day and feeds pretty much like clockwork, every 3 hours. I cannot express how happy we are to have her here. Everyone says "there is nothing like it", and it is so true. There really are not words to explain how you feel about your newborn and becoming a parent. Here are a few pictures from the past few days.

House Progress

I have had a few people ask for pictures of Anne Cambria's nursery. Sadly, we are not setting up a full nursery at the apartment. We are planning on moving in to our new house toward mid/late January, so there is really no need in setting it all up for 6-7weeks, then taking it all down. I'd prefer her furniture to stay in boxes and not be scratched and for her bedding/curtains/pillows/etc to not have to be packed up and risk the possibility of getting dirty in the move. So, at the apartment, the Queen just has the necessities (which is a lot of stuff). Anyways, the house is coming along very quickly. The weather the past two weeks has slowed us down a little, but nothing major. The exterior of the house is completely finished now (except for exterior light fixtures and gutters). But other than that, everything else is inside work now! So it can rain, snow, or whatever, and it won't matter because it's all inside work from now on. Here are a few pictures from a few days ago.
