"Sister", "Girlfriend", "Chica", "Toots", "Sweet Cheeks", "Miss Macy" (by Betsy)

So far, these are a few of the girly nicknames we have been calling Macy. Notice that "Princess" is NOT one of those nicknames! Macy has been doing great! She is settling in quite nicely to the Beers' house. She is sleeping rather well at night and only gets up once in the middle of the night to eat. She takes quite a few naps during the day too...

We've been able to get out of the house a few times with her, which has been nice! I am still not supposed to drive, so I have not been able to leave the house by myself. The first place Macy went to was Archiver's (of course!) at the mall and we have also ventured to Target, Meijer, Burger King, Salvation Army, my mom's house, and an ice cream social at the hospital where she was born. Matt and I have been having fun taking our entire little family out on the town!

Jack has been adjusting quite nicely as well. He has had a few meltdowns since we've been home from the hospital, but that is to be expected, I guess! His schedule has slightly been thrown out of whack, but not too badly. He has not yet woken up in the middle of the night when Macy cries, so that is good! Matt has been spending LOTS of quality time with Jack while I've been taking care of Macy in these early days of her life. We've let him stay up a little later than normal and he's watched a few more movies than normal this week, but it's all good! He enjoys talking to Macy when she is awake and trying to help out when he can. He likes helping give her a bath and trying to give her a pacifier. He is going to be a great big brother!

This last photo cracks me up because Jack would NOT smile for us!!!
