8.3: Thumb Sucker?
We might have a thumbsucker on our hands… this girl has already found it (or her fingers) on multiple occasions.

8.3: Heading Home
With her monkey hat on, Tessa is strapped in her car seat and ready to go home. We were at the hospital for almost 48 hours (checked-in at 1pm on Friday and released at 12:30pm on Sunday).

8.4: Big Sister Gifts
Tessa was sweet enough to get her big sisters a couple of gifts and the big sisters were very excited about opening their gifts (baby-themed Calico Critters).

8.6: MY Mommy
Chelsea is doing really well accepting the new baby and showing very few signs of jealousy. On occasion, she has to make it known that Lucia is “MY mommy and then cuddles close to her. She did this before the baby was born though too, to make sure Mallory understood who belonged to whom.

8.6: Help is Here
Gran (or “Fran” as Chelsea calls her) flew in today to help us with the girls. We are grateful that she will be here for two weeks as we try to figure out how to manage our new family of five.

8.6: Winter Games
The 21st Winter Olympics ran from February 12 – 28. We enjoyed watching many of the events, especially short track speed skating, ski cross, snowboard cross, snowboard half pipe and even curling (despite the fact that we have no clue how they keep score in curling). During these Olympics Games, the United States won the most medals in total and won the most medals by any nation at any Winter Games, with 37.

The timing of the Olympics and Tessa’s birth continued a tradition… whenever we have been in the hospital having a baby, there have always been sporting events to watch on TV (Mallory: The Masters; Chelsea: College Bowl Games).

And coincidentally, the Canadian ice dancer named Tessa won gold three days after our Tessa was born.
