Smitten with this baby of ours. Everything I have ever said about newborns was wrong. The difference between Emmett’s first week and Hollis’ first week are night and day. These last nine days have been so peaceful. She has filled our home with a calm and quiet spirit that has surprised us all. She sleeps a lot and seldom cries. When she’s hungry she just starts smacking her lips, trying to eat the closest thing to her mouth at the time (notice that she has latched on to Pitt’s shirt in the pic below). That’s my cue to sweep her up and feed her. She’s such a good lil nurser. If I’m busy (running Emmett to preschool, for instance), she will just wait until I’m ready. She is so patient. Here’s to hoping the peace and quiet continues. Emmett keeps me busy enough!
Here are some pics of Pitt being the best dad ever. He posted pics of me, so I will post pics of him 🙂
BIG thanks to my mom, Debbie. She came and stayed with us for a couple days and did my laundry and dishes and took Emmett to The Lego Store. It was great to have her around and see her loving my baby.
Emmett is smitten as well. He loves his Baby Sister and always wants to be in the same room as her. She has two good wake periods a day and Emmett will scream, “Her eyes are open!” and then we will play and read her books and give lots of kisses. He wants to hold her until she gets too wiggly. He pushes her in the stroller (supervised) and always puts her on his army team when we play armies.
