6 weeks.Firsts

My child has been alive for 6- almost 7- weeks! I can't believe it!

You know you're a first time mom when...
I have literally over 1100 pictures on my phone of her alone, not to mention a large number on Jason's phone.
All my google searches start with "why does my baby...", "when does my baby...", "newborn won't..." and so on.
I am almost done crying every single day about something. These are good and nervous tears people. Both kinds about everything under the sun.
I text things about her diapers to my mom and husband, and occasionally a friend or two.
Every 'first' is super exciting: first time to use a changing table in a public bathroom, first time to actually shop that diaper aisle in Target, first time to use a stroller at the mall, etc.

I try to always remember that this is still the easiest 'mom' life I will have right now. She still sleeps most of the time and I know nothing will be easier with more than one child. But fear not, that will not happen for a while. Hopefully.

Okay... some pictures!

First Valentines Day. She loves laying on her back and looks around alllll over the place.

She open mouth kisses. Watch out. 

We went to our first restaurant- Rudy's BBQ. Nana might love her a little. 

Hanging out with our cousins! The look so sweet and precious in Emie's crib, but I see future trouble. 

We went to church for the first time (without daddy... so sad)! 

Our first pair of shoes! Didn't stay on more than a second after this pic, but we got them on!

We love our giant bows from Lala! Don't judge our car seat straps. We try.

Of course, we had to document our first trip to Panera. Nana would naturally be in this picture.

4 weeks old!

Life has seriously flown by! Every night blends in with the one before and every hour feels like a moment.
What we've liked the past two weeks:

  • Our new bath! We love warm warm WARM water! And peeing every time.
  • Open mouth kisses. It's kind of the sweetest thing ever, and you smile after.
  • Watching American Idol and the Bachelor. You like the singing and I guess, Tierra's nasty voice.
  • Sleeping on mommy, still. I never want it to end. I could sit all day like that.
  • Our new paci! Thanks NUK for making cute ones!
  • Our trip to Mathis Bros. You slept the whole time... thanks to Grandma, I think.

What we haven't liked:

  • Our walk the other day. You screamed the entire time and it made mommy sad and scared to get you out again!
  • Being still when we're awake. Lots of stimulation is required :)

Oh, I could eat these toes up everyday!

I loved this moment between them. She couldn't look away. 

Child has some good facial muscles :)

She may or may not have scoliosis. Also, I believe when you're a mom you're entitied to the hair claw.
