Second Week

Our little family.

So the Corbitt family had an exciting second week with baby Troy. He's still sleeping well at night and is still very alert during the day. I noticed that when I put him on a blanket on the floor, he seemed to want to look around and "talk". He definitely coos at something. So, I bought a floor entertainer for him. He LOVES it! It has a song and light contraption and he'll just stare at it for a while, then will start making the cutest little noises at it. He also will make a little "squeak" when you talk to him sometimes. We think he's smart :o)
Also, Memama (Brian's mother) stayed with us last week. She was a HUGE help! She helped at night with the feeding schedule, changing him all the time, cleaning (a lot) and cooking (a ton). I don't see where she gets all of her energy but it was definitely wonderful! I felt very lazy at times but am grateful for the extra help and rest! We had a lot of visitors and folks bringing dinner for our family. Thanks to everyone! It was (and still is) so wonderful to receive visitors and dinners :o)
Memama and Grandy. Thank you for helping with Troy, Memama!!!!
Memama asked me if I thought some of my friends in town would want to come over for a little luncheon. I thought that was the sweetest idea~very thoughtful. She cooked a delicious lunch and we had a small group of 7 over for a little lunch last week. It was absolutely delicious! Above is the table decor. I forgot to get a photo of the ladies - oops. Thanks Memama!!!
What we do EVERY day! This boy loves outside! Was it because I exercised every morning (except for Sundays)???
So I just got a call from the "firefighters association". Has anyone ever received those calls? They use your name over and over and over. Troy started fussing so I hung up on them! I feel bad! Ugh! Why do they call after 5:00? And, our number is on the "do not call" list. Why do they call? Anyone have any suggestions of what to do? And, is that a legitimate fundraising organization? We pay our taxes!?!?!?!?
I've created a smugmug account to keep track of Troy. I've created so many other photo accounts and couldn't decide which to use. Smugmug has been my favorite of other people's photos so we'll see if I can keep up with it. I created two photos but password protected one of them and can't figure out how to change it. Ha!!
Lastly, last night was our first night at home by ourselves (as in without help). We did pretty good, I have to say. Troy is sleeping 4 hours at night and we still have to get him up to eat. During the day, he eats every 2-3 hours. As of last Thursday, he weighed 9 lbs, 2 oz. The Thursday before that, he was 8 lbs. 1/2 oz. He's a growing boy and I predict he's going to be a chunk! I love chunky babies!

Ok. Several things:
1) Charitable organizations will still be able to call you for.ev.ah. I learned from a former telemarketer on a plane recently that the best thing to do is to ask them to put you on their do not call list.
2) YAY for you at the walking already! And you look amazing! Did you just have a baby, woman??
3) Troy is precious!!
4) Luncheon?? WOW!! Super impressed!
