Celebrating 1 Week


I've been wanting to put up some pictures of Olivia, but I've been spoiling myself; taking time off and enjoying all my time with our little Angel. We've been learning all the ins and out of nursing, and figuring out our days and nights. So far, she's been such a good little girl, even doing her long stretches of sleep at night (which has been amazing for us since her first day home she slept all day and had a hard time eating because she was so tired; then woke up every hour that night wanting a full service meal) She's really come full circle!

She's the most beautiful baby ever. Sometimes we find ourselves just staring at her, talking to her and admiring her tiny little features. So far, parenting is everything we ever imagined...we love her more than anything in the world.

This is just a little video we made of her first 48 hours of life...

I can't believe she's already one week old. We have a ton more pictures so I will try to update frequently.

Precious. What a treasure for Olivia to have -- and for you guys . . . there is nothing like the birth of your VERY FIRST CHILD. All births are special, but you only have one FIRST.

There aren't even words! I can't even express the beauty and preciousness of that video! What a great gift for her and you two to have years from now! Everything about it is beautiful! Music, baby, Mom, Dad, outside, angles, T's bare shoulders--all so precious and beautiful.

Made me teary! Love you guys!

Congratulations again!
