10 days old!



Lyric is ten days old... I cannot believe how fast that went by. She is still completely charming her family. Tatum loves taking care of her: picking out her outfits, feeding her a bottle, helping give her a bath. Davis is surprisingly gentle with her and is very concerned when she cries. She is quite the sleeper. I am having a hard time getting her to stay awake long enough to eat... she was down to 7lbs. 8oz. at the doctor on Monday, down 2 oz. from when we left the hospital. She is also recovering from a minor bout of jaundice, and has lovely, yellow-colored eyes. I picked up a cold/ cough from the hospital and now Davis is sick, hopefully we can keep Lyric from getting it. Otherwise things are great. Lyric has picked up an interesting nickname from Tatum; she always greets her with "hello yellow Jello." Hopefully that one won't stick.

Ok the nick name is funny and I am sure it won't stick but still something good to giggle about right now. She is TOTALLY BEAUTIFUL!!! I also love what you do to the pictures!!! Beautiful little girl and beautiful photography skills! You are so talented. Can't wait to see her in person. She is a totally beautiful baby and it is great to hear the kids are so good with her especially little Davis!

She is so beautiful..you're lucky she sleeps so much. Kierstie would only stay awake and eat every 2 hours.

The pictures are awesome. She looks so beautiful and peaceful. I am glad that Davis is great with her. I am sure that you are relieved over that.

She just looks so sweet. Jaundice no big deal-seriously. I freaked out when Luke had it, and I shouldn't have. Just open the blinds and let her sun bathe.
