We've got a 4 week old baby at home, WHAT! This little munchkin is a hungry, growing girl and the absolute apple of her mama and daddy's eyes.
We are getting to see these baby blues more and more each day. Such a treat! She has grinned a couple of times while awake, which will just melt your heart. We see lots of grins as she is dozing off into a milk coma.
There are so many things that I don't want to forget her doing...and it's so hard to record all of them! She has really started using her hands more...discovering her face, grabbing things (including my hair). We even caught her touching her eyeball the other day!
Our first SEVERAL baths were very traumatic She went into complete panic mode and I felt terrible. For the past week, she has decided that they aren't all that bad and I think she is actually enjoying them. I bathe her in a baby tub in between the 2 sinks in our jack and jill bath and she checks herself out in the mirror the entire time. We've been working hard on that body so she must be proud. We are starting to get some thunder thighs on our little pot-bellied piglet.
Our first family of 3 shot. We laughed and laughed over this picture, as I look like a child bride sitting so much lower than Josh. This was taken the day we left the hospital.
Oh how far 4 weeks will take you! I won't lie...the transition into motherhood has been more challenging (yet more wonderful too) than I could have ever imagined. We are still learning her cues to figure out what she needs, feedings are long but continue to improve and I'm trying to get out for quick errands with her when it's possible...just to avoid a serious case of cabin fever! We are trying to soak it all in and enjoy this incredible blessing to our family!
