Adelaide: 1 Week Old

Adelaide Rose,

Today you are one week old. It doesn't seem possible that so much time has already passed.


You are such a sweet baby. You hardly ever cry. Once this week you had a tummyache that upset you, and you aren't the biggest fan of diaper changes. But otherwise you are just content and happy!


I have already been able to set you down long enough to shower - several times. Your big brother didn't let me do that until he was several months old!  You love the Rock 'n Play and the swing, but you also love to cuddle.  We spend most of the day (and night) just snuggling. 

You have been sleeping really well during the night - in fact, last night you slept about five and a half hours straight!


It is such a wonderful relief for me that you are a champion at nursing.  You want to eat frequently (anywhere from every half hour to two hours), but I don't mind at all. 

You are wearing size Newborn clothes and they are just precious.  I am definitely picking out the purple and green outfits first, even though we (of course) have a mountain of pink as well.  Most of the headbands I have purchased for you are way too big on your sweet head, so I am having to be patient about that.


Your big brother makes so much noise and commotion throughout the day, but you don't seem to mind.  You sleep through all of his chaos!  He is doing really well with not grabbing you or trampling you, so that's good! 


You met lots of people in your first week of life - two sets of grandparents, one set of great-grandparents, your aunt, uncle and cousin, and your little buddy Connor who is only three weeks older than you.  Already you are so very loved by everyone who knows you! 

Mommy can't get over how beautiful you are, how incredibly good you smell, and how perfect it is to have you out here in the world and in my arms.  I never want to let you go!


I know the days and weeks and years are going to fly by.  Before I blink, you'll be grown up and asking me to wear makeup and giggling with your friends at slumber parties.  We have so many fun memories to make in the years to come - but I am afraid they will go by too fast.  So I am soaking up every single moment, precious girl. 

I love you.  Forever.

Love,
Mommy
