i can't believe we've already been a family of three for two weeks. where has the time gone? you are growing bigger everyday, feeding like crazy, and sleeping when you feel like it. we're living our lives on your terms and we couldn't be happier, greasy hair and all. we fall more in love with you every single day, cheeks.
today we took our first family outing. we went to the bookstore where i used to work and showed you off to some of my former co-workers. you slept peacefully the entire time as we drank our coffees and read our magazines. you are so content no matter whose arms you wake up in.
in the last few days you've become much more alert. you spend whole chunks of time with your eyes open, taking in the world around you. your daddy and i try to seize these moments to read you stories. you're beginning to really focus on the pictures as we read.
your daddy and i are simply over the moon for you. we can't wait to watch you grow and change. we love you so very much.
taking pictures of my precious girl, that is.
today we went to sylvie's 2 week pediatrician appointment. her weight gain was a little touch and go at the beginning, but i'm happy to report that she is back up to her birth weight. that's 9 ounces gained in one week! she's eating like a champ around the clock, which means almost no sleep on our end. it's all so worth it.
