Taking the advice from friends, we took a little nap.  Sara Beth was in the room, but she was napping too.  Around 6, Heather and I ate dinner, her from the hospital kitchen, and me from Jason's Deli.  Once we were done, it was Sara Beth's time to eat.  Unlike earlier this afternoon, she ate very well: twenty minutes on each side.  After that she was opened eyed and awake for the next hour so Heather an I were able to play with her! 

I know all dads say this, but she is the cutest baby ever.  Both eyes were open and she was looking around trying to make heads or tails of the world around her.

She also had her first dirty diaper, and it was a doozy.  Since Heather was still recovering, I started to change my first dirty diaper ever on a baby.  Fortunatly, the nurse came in the room right as I was getting started, so I passed the task on to her and dodged that land mine.  Maybe next time.

The nurses came in and took Sara Beth back to the nursery to take her temperature again and by the time she came back, she was fast asleep and has been asleep since.  We'll see how she does tonight for her 10pm feeding.

On a side note, I want to thank everyone who have done so much for us.  Prayers have been lifted up for us, food has been given to us, and Sara Beth has all sorts of cool baby stuff.  Heather and I are thankful for all of you and the love and generousity that you have shown us.

Heather - you look way too put together to have just had a baby...you are making it look so easy. I'm just so impressed! I love this picture of you looking at Sara Beth...what a beautiful memory to capture!

Peter - Before you know it, you'll be changing diapers like an old pro! I must apologize now for laughing at the thought of you trying to change your very first dirty diaper. Way to go for at least being willing to give it a shot!
