Just wanted you to know....

Hi Mirah,

I've got a lot of catching up to do here on this blog, but I just wanted to tell you a quick something. Last night I sat down at the computer to update your pictures and write a couple blog entries. To my horror, I opened up the blog document and........... NOTHING..........NO POSTS..............ALL GONE! I was shocked, worried, and trembling at the thought that all this work I've done here was gone. Your dad was in bed and I hesitated in waking him, but I was kinda freaking out. I told him what happened. I had to repeat myself several times and then he asked, "Where are we?" Poor dad was really out of it. I explained to him what happened and then I went out to see if I could come up with some panacea for the situation (cool word. still remember it from 8th grade vocab). I didn't expect Dad to get out of bed, I just needed to tell him what happened to see if he had any suggestions. Knowing me and how I am in the face of potentially great data loss, he stumbled out to my desk to help. With his tired eyes barely open and his face two inches from the screen (contacts out for the night, glasses, well....broken), he navigated around my hard drive trying to retrieve the missing posts, that is, all of them. I was feeling helpless and frantic, which made me particularly annoying. He still continued to search and search. We were able to pull the file 85% complete from my back-up hard drive. I've just finished copying from online and pasting into the document the small bit that was gone. And I've got it all back to together again. And now to my point, YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL FATHER AND I, A WONDERFUL HUSBAND. He would do anything for us. He never ceases to amaze me by how far he will go for his family. We are truly blessed. Just wanted you to know that.

love you,
mommy

Daddy bought Mommy and Mirah an early Valentine's Day present. He saw these cookies at the store and couldn't resist getting something special for his two sweethearts.

Another bath with Daddy

Mirah had another bath with her Daddy today. She was a very good girl, as usual. There are more pics here.

First Bath

Daddy gave Mirah her fist bath today. She squirmed quite a bit but Daddy made sure his little girl was clean. He cleaned all the precious folds in her skin and also washed her hair. Daddy loved how Mirah would grab Daddy's thumb for comfort. After her bath, Mirah feel into a deep sleep.

A good little suckler

We found out that Mirah loves to suckle. She had no problems latching on and when she is upset she likes to suckle on Daddy's pinky.

On Mirah's first night at the hospital, Daddy held her all night. Of course, Mommy had to feed her but besides that Daddy made sure she felt warm and loved. And he loved every minute of it...even when he was sleeping.

Hello World!!

Happy Birth Day Mirah!! You were born February 1st 2008 at 11:15pm. Mommy called Daddy at 5(pm), we went to the hospital at 9, and at 11:15 you were in Mommy's arms and Daddy was looking at his beautiful little girl.

We hope to be the best parents we can be and to show you that with a bunch of love in your heart the world is magical place. We love you and happy birth day once again.

(By the way, Daddy was wondering if this is your "zero" birthday or just your birth day...You'll see he thinks about weird stuff like this a lot.)
