1 Week Old


You are one week old today! I can't believe how fast this week has flown by. Everyone says that once you have a baby your life changes forever. We agree, it does in the most wonderful way possible. Mommy and Daddy love you very much. We joke that we want you to stay this little forever but we can't wait to watch you grow and develop into your own little person.

Your original due date was July 29th. But since you were head's up in mommy's tummy we had a c-section scheduled for today, July 22nd at 7am. However you decided you wanted to meet Mommy and Daddy early and were born July 15, 2011 at 2:31pm via c-section.

Your daddy cried when he saw you and as I predicted you had him wrapped around your finger from that first moment on. When I saw you I couldn't get over how tiny and perfect you were. I spent that whole first night in the hospital watching you sleep. You are the love of our lives and have made our world that much more complete

Now onto some Baby Stats
Birth Weight-6lbs5oz
Current Weight- Just under 6 lbs
Eye Color-Bluish/Black
Hair Color-Light Brown

You are currently breast fed and feed on demand. Usually this amounts to every two hours.

You love to be held and would probably only sleep in our arms if we let you. Ok so we might have given in a few times but hopefully that doesn't become too much of a habit

You are becoming more and more alert. When you open your eyes and look around at your surroundings it is just the cutest thing

You love your little lamb vibrating chair and your swing.

You are currently wearing size premie diapers

Most newborn size clothes are too big so we are making due with what we have. Mommy may have just ordered you quite a few more outfits yesterday

You love to sleep with your hands up over your head and your feet tucked up.

You are def more active and alert at night. During the day you are a sound sleeper but once 3am rolls around it is party time for you. Taking after your parent's already

Mommy tried out her moby wrap the other day and you fell right asleep. I took that as confirmation that you liked to be all wrapped up. However I am going to wait to use it until my incision has healed. Dr's orders

Next week you get to meet your grandparent's and great grandparent's on Mommy's side. They can't wait to meet you

Mommy and Daddy love you so much. We are so blessed and thankful to have you in our life
