This weekend my father came in for a visit to meet his brand new grandaughter Alexis. He seems very excited as all grandpas do of course. I think he would like to really move close to us but that would require a new job and huge move from Maryland. Seems like the birth of the baby is bringing us more visitors all the time. Next month, Rachel's parents will be here and in March my sister.

Happy 1 week birthday to our beautiful baby girl, Alexis!! 8 days ago we would have never imagined how happy we would have been. She is the best thing that has happened to us! So here's to one week of dirty diapers, feedings every 30 minutes, screaming bloody murder and to many, many more!!!!

Today was Alexis' first appointment with her pediatrician. She was quiet the whole time in the waiting room until we brought her to the back where she wouldn't stop crying. But I think getting probed with the thermometer didn't help any either. Anyways, Dr. Misch gave her an A+ and a clean bill of health.

Look who's going home!
Finally after being in the hospital since Monday, baby Alexis was finally allowed to go home, Thursday night. Having a new baby is probably one of the most exciting things to happen in our lives. And adjusting to a new lifestyle of no sleep (especially for Rachel) and having to care for this new life is very gratifying at many levels. I hope I can only do the best job I can as her father. And give her the proper guidance she needs to be a great person.
