First Bath

Sophia decided to pee all over herself (and me) while I was changing her diaper, which led to an impromptu first bath. Watch the exclusive footage below!

For Your Consideration

I decided to get out the trusty Samsung SC-MX10 to record some video of Sophia on her floor mat jungle thing-a-ma-jig. She doesn’t do much, but she’s only 2 weeks old so cut her a little slack. This has also given me an excuse to experiment with embedded video in the blog. I’ve also added some new pictures to the February 2009 photo gallery. Enjoy.

Baby Pictures and Sleep Deprivation

It’s been an interesting week. Christina and I are trying to adjust to being parents. Presently Sophia tends to sleep more during the day, consequently she is usually awake for most of the night. Mommy and Daddy are trying to adjust, plus we’re taking steps to acclimate her to more of a daytime schedule. She feeds every 2 to 4 hours, so we’re trying to make it a point to wake her often during the day to feed in hopes that she’ll sleep more at night. It’s slow going so far.

Sophia had her first pediatric appointment this week, and it was decided by all present that she is an awesome baby. We took Sophia for a walk (she was in a stroller, duh) today. There are a some pics from this ground breaking event in the photo album. There are also some more random photos of her in and out of the hospital, as well as some crappy cell phone pics from the operating room before and during Christina’s caesarean section (nothing gross). Enjoy!

It’s good to be home

Sophia Adele Friel was born at 10:01 PM on January 30 2009. Her birth weight was 8 lbs 0.5 oz. The wifi at the hospital wasn’t very cooperative, so I was unable to upload any pictures to the photo album until today. Here are the first baby pics. Today was our first day home from the hospital, so with unfettered internet access the floodgate of baby pictures is now open.
