More Baylor Pics

After 6 days of trying, I have finally succeeded in posting these pictures.  You're probably thinking this is due to the newborn, but really it's just because of the internet.  We've had some troubles there the last few days.  But don't worry, no more waiting to see the cuteness.

These two pictures were taken in the hospital just 12 or so hours after her birth.  She was very alert for a newborn, and content and happy to play and sleep.  This has since been replaced with eating and more eating and crying when she's not eating.

Our first family photo away from the hospital.

Baylor is not a fan of bath time.  I myself love bath time.  In fact, I wish I had time for a sudsy soak with a ducky every day.  Baylor does, however, enjoy being wrapped up in a nice, soft towel afterwards and being cuddled by her Baba.  In case you don't recognize him, the guy in the second picture is Brett.  Yes, Sasquatchy Brett has left, hopefully never to return again.  It's so hot here, we were only home from the hospital 30 minutes before he darted off to get his shave and a haircut.  The reactions of our friends here were highly entertaining to watch. None of them had ever seen Brett without the shaggy hair and scraggly backpacker beard before.  Baylor has a pretty strong grip, so it was probably wise of him before she ripped out a big chunk anyway.

For those of you who don't know, I'm a big fan of sheep, and am pretty happy about the fact that my daughter's initials spell BAH.  In honor of this, we bought her this little sheep outfit so that she can not only look adorable, but also maybe start counting early and get a good night's rest (the good night's rest is really my dream though).
