Reese Miakka at 6 Weeks!

First of all, I’d like to apologize for the lack of updates since my wife gave birth to our little angel – Reese Miakka.  Things have been crazy the past few weeks!  Needless to say, a lot of things have changed.

My baby is now a little over than 6 weeks old.  A lot of things have happened to her, both good and bad.  Fortunately, the bad things are apparently normal.  But as a dad, they’re still reasons to be concerned.

For the past couple of weeks, our baby is suffering from rashes!  The good thing is, she doesn’t seem to be affected by them.  She has them all over her face but she’s not showing any signs of discomfort.  According to the pedia, rashes are normal.  They’re starting to disappear so that’s a good thing!

Yesterday, she also suffered from colds.  I know a lot of babies who suffered from colds during this time as well.  It sure didn’t help that the weather is unpredictable.  Fortunately, my baby’s nose is not that clogged.  I think she’s okay now.  She slept like a baby (duh!) last night.

Well, D-Day is almost here!  My wife’s CS operation was moved a few days earlier.  Instead of Sept. 18, it was moved to Sept. 16.  You know what that means!  It’s two days from now!  Yes, two!  One more than one and one less than three!  Simply put, it’s almost time!
