It’s a Girl!
It’s a girl! I have a daughter! (As I don’t have regular access to the internet, it’s taken me a while to get around to this. My poor blog.)
My beautiful daughter made her way into the world on the morning of May 28. She was exactly one week late and definitely worth the wait. It’s only been 2 and a half weeks since her arrival, and the reality and feeling of pregnancy are long past. I can’t believe it’s been 2 weeks already, and yet, it seems like she’s always been a part of my life.
She is an angel baby. She sleeps for 2 and 3 hour stretches at night (and I’m thankful for every stretch of sleep), and isn’t overly fussy. She’s so tiny and perfect, I’m pretty sure that I’ll be almost sad as she gets bigger. I love how little and cuddly she is.
She was born at 6 lbs, 6 oz and measured 20 inches long. She has been eating like a little piggy and weighed 7 lbs at today’s appointment.
She has her father’s nose and resembles his infant pictures. I think she has my mouth shape and definitely has my coloring. She sleeps like her father… she doesn’t stay still and makes all kinds of noises in her sleep. 🙂 We are unsure what color hair she will have! Her hair in back is light brown, with blonde on the top. Her eyebrows and eyelashes are very light – a blonde or red. Time will tell!
We are so in love!
