Im absolutely blissfully happy basking in blessings as I write this. Holding my tiny girl in my arms. She’s the picture of contentment in her milk induced coma:) Nothing in the world sweeter than the smell of a newborn! I am absolutely head-over-heels in L-O-V-E!!
We brought our little doll baby home on Thursday. The little stinker has her days and nights completely mixed up. She’s a big time snuggle bug and sleeps all…day….long. But boy is night time another story! Funny, because this is exactly how she was in utero too. I wouldnt feel her all day long, then she’d be so active as soon as I laid down to sleep. We’re exhausted, but those middle of the night snuggles are so worth it, I cant complain.
Am still just in awe that she’s so tiny yet so healthy. It may be hard to tell from the pictures, but she is teen-insy! All my babies have been whopper babies. Even the twins had her beat by nearly half a pound. Evie was a good two and a half pounds bigger than Gigi. She’s just itsy-bitsy! “Fun-size”. None of her newborn clothes fit. They just swallow her up. I had to laugh….Evie brought her “preemie” sized baby doll up and laid it next to Gigi when we got home from the hospital. It is HUGE next to our little preemie! Amazing what a difference a couple weeks and a couple pounds makes when they are this little.
C took his girls out on a date last night. Gigi’s first big outing was to Maccaroni Grill….Mommy’s favorite! She was absolutely oblivious when we returned home three hours later that she’d even been out. She slept the entire time in her carseat and didnt make a peep. Doesnt get any easier than that!
Im likely to crash my computer again with picture overload. My camera is constantly focused on this little peanut. Seems everything she does is photo-worthy. So enjoying her every sweet expression….
….new accomplishments like learning to suck her thumb…..
….her little wrinkles and rolls…
…sweet little clasped fingers…
…and larger than life yawns….aahhh!
Welcome to the world baby girl!!
