Our first night alone was so great. We were excited to be in our own bed & start this new journey. I think that when everyone left Mike & I just sat in silence for a few minutes soaking in that she is ours. We are not just babysitting & waiting for the parents to come pick her up...we are the parents! We did not sleep great that first night but luckily we could just lay around the house the next day. One of my favorite things is when you are hungry I steal tons of kisses from you because you are trying to find food like a little birdy...so cute!
This week we met up with Grandpa for lunch. This was one of your first little outing & you did fantastic! I was holding you while I was eating so I'm sure I was eating a little slower but I looked over at Grandpa & he was all done. He looked at me & said "I'm finished can I hold her now?!?!" It was so cute he ate so fast just so he could hold you. He is so excited about being a Grandpa, he asks us to send him pictures of you every day.
You had your first little sponge bath this week & you loved it. You really just laid there & let daddy clean you. You really like the warm water on your belly & head. I'm excited to see how you do in a real bath when your umbilical cord falls off. You also went to church for your first time this week. You were such a good little girl, you slept most of the time. I was a little nervous to take you because of germs, I wanted to put a sign on you that said "look but don't touch!" As soon as the students saw us walking up they came running to meet you, they love you so much! They were so great the just stared at you & can't wait until you are big enough to play with them.
So before you were born I said you would not be sleeping in our bed. Well lets just say that you are sleeping in our bed...I promise I'm not going to make a habit out of it. For right now we are all adjusting & if that is where you sleep better I'm okay with it. You also are the most particular girl, you know exactly what you want. You do not like to be swaddled because you like to have your hands next to your face. You also refuse to sleep on your back you must sleep on your side. I love to see your personality already starting to show.
All my love!
We did a lot of this...
Your first bath
