glimpse of our first week as parents

We survived our first week home with Adelaide (and it's only taken me 3 days to find the time to put together this post!) and she's spoiling us because besides a few nights where she's been fussy between 10 and 1am or so, she's been pretty easy on us! We have adjusted to life as a family of 3 quite easily so far and are trying to savor every moment of it. I apologize, for all the pictures, but how am I supposed to pick just a few when each one is absolutely adorable?

This is how Brad & Adelaide spend many a nap time...

Hurray for Jenna's 4 girls = lots of cute hand-me-downs for Adelaide!

My favorite.

She's very peeky all the time!

This was after her first sponge bath where she ended up dirtier after her bath then she was before! (She peed on the towel & projectile spit up all over herself during it).

First walk - she slept even though the sidewalks are Very bumpy.

When she's fussy in the evenings, I find her and Brad sitting and staring at my nursing cover - the contrast of the light & dark colors is very mesmerizing to her!

First real bath - she didn't mind it at all

Her poor little bottom is huge in the cloth diapers we're using - hopefully she doesn't get a complex from it! I couldn't resist taking this picture of her ruffle bottom!

So shy!

Hanging on to daddy's collar...

A few things I don't want to forget:
  • When she cries it sounds like she's singing then ends it with a squeak - so it goes laaa squeak! laaa squeak! laaa squeak!
  • She has such busy little hands! When nursing she tries to help and always has her hands in my way.
  • She holds on to the rim of brad's t-shirt when he's holding her all snuggly on his chest, slowly stretching out each one of his t-shirt collars.
