I got to spend another wonderful few hours with miss Emily tonight. She slept in my arms both before and after dinner....

She's had a busy week! Visits to both Phillip and Heather's work yesterday, and her first doctor's appointment today. Everything looks great - she is 7 lbs 3 oz (1 oz up from birth weight, 9 oz up from leaving the hospital weight). She had her PKU test and her little heel was still bleeding tonight. I think it was harder on Heather than on Emily!

I think Heather & Phillip are going on a date tomorrow night and Mom (aka Pearlie) and I will babysit. They did a little trial run tonight - a Sonic run for blasts as a treat after dinner!
