6 weeks

Olivia will be 6 weeks old tomorrow. Time has flown by. She gets bigger every day and is smiling more and more. She tends to be really happy when she is laying on the changing table. Why? I don't really know. But she seems to think that the ribbon and monkey picture on the wall are pretty funny. And mommy is pretty funny while she's changing her too. Works for me. I love it when she smiles!

We are currently looking in to getting her baptized. We are hoping to go to Austin at the end of August and may have her baptized there at a church that some of my family go to. Plus, we would have a better chance of getting more people there to meet Olivia for the first time. Most of my family lives not too far from Austin and may have the chance to travel there. And we'd get to see Busha which is the big deal.

I had my 6-week postpartum appointment yesterday. Everything is healing very well and he said that I have no restrictions so I can resume all normal activities. I plan on going back to the gym starting next week. I am not eager to see how out of shape I am. I'll be on the treadmill dying I'm sure. Next week I am going to see an Orthopedic guy because I've been having issues with my left wrist. During the last trimester of my pregnancy I was swollen and had pain in my knuckles when I woke up in the morning. About 6 weeks before I delivered I started getting pain in my wrist and thought it was the same thing. But it has not gone away and has actually gotten progressively worse. It is most painful on the thumb side of my wrist right on the bone. It feels like a little bump has grown on the bone and at times it feels like something is sliding over the top of it when I move it. So I am being forced by my husband to have it looked at. The fact that I sometimes have a hard time picking Olivia up is enough of a problem.

I got some more great pictures of Olivia this week. They are below. I also took a video of her on my digital camera. It was my first time working with it so it's not great but at least she was awake for it.

Olivia just gets cuter by the day! Your video is great too. Sounds like life with a newborn is going well. I am starting to get really nervous about that part so it is great reading about your experience.
