Proud of my girl!

Not the one you all are thinking of, but I am so proud of Finley. I'm so proud of my girl Sarah Robbins! Tomorrow is her last day at The Henry County Chamber of Commerce as Tourism Director (not sure if I have the title quite right, but she's all over promoting their tourism). For those of you who don't know, Henry County is the fast growing area in the state of Georgia. My girl has been in charge of some serious tourism. She took on the job about five years ago and has taken their tourism to the next level. I always love hearing about her projects and seeing her on the cover of magazines :) Tomorrow is her last day because she ties the knot with John Scott Husser on January 24th. Her new residence is my old one. . . downtown Rome, GA. I'm sure she'll make Rome her own too!
Sarah was the friend my mom prayed for when I moved to Athens. She has been such a blessing for so long now. I don't know what I'd do without her. Sarah lets me ventilate and keeps me up to date with the latest ATL news/trends. I just love her and can't wait to see what her (and JSH) future holds!

It all started four years ago

Tomorrow is my and Jarrett's four year wedding annivesary. I can't believe it's been four years. It's been such an awesome trip so far. . .I can't wait for the next four. Who knows, maybe there will be four more bambinos! We didn't expect to have precious Finley at this point. You never know what God has in store. I could never imagined or dreamed someone as perfect and special as Jarrett is to me. And to think about all those nights I just knew I was destined for singlehood. God is so good.

Bathing the Baby Girl

Finley experienced her first ever bath tonight and it was a success. We are finding that her hair can sort of resemble her daddy's. By the way, my nurse student wife, wouldn't let us bath for a while because we didn't want to disturb the acid mantle of her skin, whatever that is...

Day Five

It was almost a sleepless night, but Finley settled in to sleep around 2a.m. After that she slept until 4:30!!! Yea! She is kind of sleeping through the night. We're hoping for our third night of five hours straight. Dr. Aljabi wonders if she has a touch of collic. Daddy J is battling the drugstore madness at the moment. We're getting drops of the tummy. I'm aching for him to get home because there is a package from Melanie and Mimi on the doorstep!

Day Four

We're still struggling with a schedule... we've got the eating thing down--every three hours. It's the time in between that's not falling into place. Any ideas, other than Baby Wise--terrible experience with that philosophy yesterday.

The Synergist Shot is Approved!!!!

We found out today that our insurance has approved six RSV vaccine shots for Finley!!!! Yes! Initially they were denied, but after review--we had to let them know that I work in healthcare (had an RSV encounter last week) and that in January Finley will be spending more time with her two cousins (she can't wait). God is so good!
