Chloe's first Thanksgiving

Me and Chloe are doing good. We had a few days where Chloe cried a lot all of a sudden, but whether her problem went away on her own or it was her new bottles, she's feeling great again. She eats, sleeps and isn't crying the entire rest of the time. 

Lately she likes to play tricks on me. The kind of tricks where she falls asleep (usually while eating), and will stay asleep for about 10 minutes in my arms but when I put her to bed she's awake within a couple of minutes. Sometimes she'll do this 5 times in a row. I figured out Saturday night that if I let her fall asleep next to me in bed, I can let her lay until she's in a deep sleep then she stays asleep when I put her in her bed. Much better. 

She just had her first holiday - Thanksgiving. We had turkey dinner at my mother's on Saturday night. My brother drove her and I down in my car. Sunday we picked up my grandfather and had turkey dinner with him and the rest of the family at my aunt and uncle's. It's always a good time when we go there. She turned two weeks old on Sunday. 

We came home on Monday and she met our cousin (and my friend) Melanie for the first time. 

Life's been crazy busy, but we're getting by. I would be living off of coffee if I didn't have to nap so much to survive.
