I can’t believe it’s already been a week. It’s so cliché, but time really does fly by way too quickly. I’m savouring every moment with our itty bitty baby, because before we know it, she won’t be so itty bitty anymore. She now weighs 7 lbs. 2 oz. and she’s finally starting to fit properly in her NB size clothes!
She’s such a little sweetheart, who loves being held and snuggled. She doesn’t cry very much – until she gets hangry and I don’t get my boob ready for her quick enough! She isn’t a huge fan of diaper changes, but she’s getting much better about it. So far, she has successfully peed on Joey twice, and pooped on me once. 😂
We’re beginning to figure out a routine that works for us, and the past two nights, she has slept solid from midnight – 5am. Other than that, she is nursing about every 2-3 hours throughout the day. She’s pretty alert for a little while after I feed her, before she passes out. It’s so sweet to just sit and watch her little facial expressions.
I’m learning to run on much less sleep than what I’m used to, but on the bright side, I can drink coffee without becoming instantly nauseous for the first time in 9 months! Needless to say, I’ve definitely been relishing my morning coffee the past few days.
Things have been pretty hectic around here since we got home from the hospital! Aside from the obvious, bringing a newborn baby home– We also have a house full at the moment! My parents are here until Sunday, as well as my brother, sister-in-law, and our niece, Elsie. It’s so nice to get to spend time with everyone, and it’s also really lovely to have so many helping hands around. I absolutely love hanging out with my family, even if we’re doing absolutely nothing… Just enjoying each other’s company means so much to me.
Addie and I are headed to Tumbler next week (our first solo road trip is 600 kilometres 🙃), and then Joey will drive up on the weekend. My mom is throwing me a baby shower on Saturday, and then on Sunday, we are having Addie’s newborn photos done! We are also going to see my great grandma so she can meet Addie, and we will definitely be taking some 5 generations photos!
P.S. How absolutely adorable is that milestone blanket?! I am absolutely in love with it – It’s got me so stoked for Addie’s monthly update photos! It’s by Lulujo Baby, which is a fantastic Canadian company. They also sells the most adorable muslin swaddle blankets, and a bunch of other awesome things. Check them out here!
