Since her daddy is on TV, I thought it would only be natural to share Clara's first video appearance! She sleeps a lot, so here is a rare look at her open eyes:
We're on our way home now. I'm in the back seat with the baby since I just fed her. She's back to sleep now and I'm about to sleep too, if at all possible, since I have a pretty bad cold and can barely keep my eyes open.
We made a quick stop in New Orleans, where we ate some absolutely delicious beignets. Holy cow, they were good! It was our first time trying beignets, and our first time in New Orleans.
Clara slept right through her first visit to the French Quarter
We're now in Mississippi, and we'll make it about half way to Ryan's parents' tonight. Tomorrow night we'll stay at their house, and head home to Richmond on Saturday morning.
Everyone wonders how our first night went, and I guess it went fine! She ate at 11:30 p.m., then again at 12:30 a.m. (that was only because she only ate about 2/3 of her bottle at 11:30 before falling asleep with the bottle in her mouth; we'll know for next time that we should try to get her to finish more of it), 3:30 (apparently I woke up and asked Ryan to feed her; I have no memory of that!), then at 7. So, just like during the day, she goes about three to three-and-a-half hours. A couple times she has gone four hours, which is the longest the nanny says we should let her go without eating.
Okay, I'm going to try to get some sleep. Hopefully I'll post more later if I can!
