Baby's First Real Debute


On Friday night we were able to go to our friend Mia's wedding reception. When she originally set her date we were unsure if we were going to make it. We thought I would either have just had the baby or be extremely uncomfortable and angry that I was overdue. But everything worked out and we were so glad I was able to come and have everyone meet Camryn for the first time. You will see that she is not pictured because she was an angel and slept the entire time! I was so stressed out that she would be fussy since 5-10 pm is her worst time of day. The little 9 day old surprised us and didn't make a peep the whole night! She made it very easy for us to enjoy seeing our friends.

Let's just say this night wouldn't have been possible without the help of my parent's who had been staying with us this past week. There is nothing better than a good family! It was so nice to have such help this week. We'll see how my real first week alone goes! Wish me luck! And thanks again mom and dad!

And what would be a post if I didn't put up pictures of the one you want to see...


She is already rolling to her side...hard to believe...so see for yourself!

I miss her too much already! Look how peacefully she is sleeping with her hands placed just perfectly so! I wish it was me that was holding that sleepiness-kiss her for me!

I thought you might post pictures from the wedding, so I kept checking your blog! I love seeing baby Camryn pictures, so keep them coming. Also, I hear you on the 5-10pm thing. FOR SURE the worst time in a newborns day (and the parents day too!)

Just when I think Camryn cannot get any more beautiful and then you post more pictures. Beautiful, yes, but I wished everyone could look into those beautiful eyes full of wisdom. If she wasn't so tiny, I wouldn't think she was a newborn. I am so lucky to be her grandma!

I am so excited I got to see Camryn- and you of course! She is even more beautiful in person- pictures do not do her justice. She was so good during the wedding- b/c that time of day is still not Jack's best either. Btw, You are looking GREAT!!!! Can't wait to come over and hold her!!!

Erin and James said...

mia looks gorgeous! how fun! and your little daughter is so gorgeous and doesn't look like a newborn at all! even my husband said she was one of the prettiest babies he has ever seen!

Nikki said...

I'm so happy that you were able to go to the wedding and celebrate with your friends. She was such an angel for you. I can't believe what a dolly she is! I need to come see you! I think I have to wait until Thanksgiving...

Good luck on your first week home alone! BTW - that time of the day in my house is called the witching hour. :)

Congrats you guys!!! she is beautiful! I mean that!! I know everyone says that, but I really know some ugly babies (some I am related to). I cant believe it has been so long since we've talked. Please keep in touch. I have you on my blog as a friend now. I found you through Julie. I hope to stay in better touch!

She is just so beautiful!

Holy cuteness I just can't stand it. Erica, she is SO CUTE!! I can't can't can't wait to see her. You look so good! Not how one should look after just 9 days! Congrats Mia! Fun for you to be able to go. Mom is amazing, I hope your next week is great without her.

Amanda said...

So jealous that you got to go to Mia's wedding! How are you feeling? People thought I was crazy for leaving the house after a month... they thought I was even crazier when I told them I had been running errands like 3 days after Ethan was born. When you feel good, you feel good. And you're looking good! Camryn is so cute and you two are such cute parents!

Amy said...

What's the reddness on her left arm?

THE GARN FAMILY said...

She is one of the cutest little babies I have ever seen (And I have 3 of my own!)...she is just so adorable...and all that dark hair!
Congrats to both of you. We will have to come and visit and see her!
Love, Shantil
