Just the Three of Us

After Elaine left it was just the three of us. We began to get more confident as parents and settle into a routine. After a few weeks Lillian finally figured out the difference between night and day and started sleeping more regularly at night. This made us much happier parents. Lillian was quite fussy during this time and still wanted to be held a lot. Eric got lots of cuddle time in before he had to return to work after his paternity leave.

We also had a visit from Lillian's Aunt Erin. Erin got to see the worst of the fussy baby stage, but they still manged to have some fun together. During the visit Lillian got to make her first trip to Santa Cruz, and her first visit to a winery.

The first few weeks home

The first few weeks home were filled with joy and challenges. Luckily we had lots of help from Elaine. We don't know what we would have done without her. Lillian loved to be held, constantly. Luckily for her she had three sets of loving arms willing to hold her as much as she wanted.

She spent much of the first few weeks curled up inside Eric's bathrobe while he watched 2 whole seasons of Battlestar Galactica on DVD. Good times for the both of them.

Lillian also amazed us with her baby super powers when she started rolling herself over during tummy time. She hates tummy time and was very determined to get her self off her tummy.
