1 Week

You are 1 week old our little Lily girl. It is hard to believe that just 1 short week ago we welcomed you into this world.

You are the easiest going baby. You sleep most of the day waking about every 2 hours to eat and have a few minutes of awake time. You usually have one longer period of awake time around 6pm. Nights are just as easy with you too. You continue your every 2 hour feeding until around 1am. The last few days you have slept until 5:30 or 6:30 after your 1am feeding. Getting that 4 1/2-5 1/2 hour stretch of sleep really has helped me to not feel so sleep deprived. I was worried I might need to wake up during this time to feed you, but the consensus from everyone seems to be let you sleep. I know you are getting enough during the day and it is only the one long stretch. I never had to think about this with your brother...he was not a very good sleeper at night.

Your brother is so in love with you. He is always asking to hold you. He is waiting on pins and needles for the day mommy will let him give you a bottle. He loves the times when you have your eyes open and always makes sure to show you his cool tricks during those times.

You are a nursing super star. You had a perfect latch from the moment I fed you in the hospital and have had no issues with eating.

We are all getting adjusted to having you outside of mommy's belly. We love watching all the funny faces you make while you are sleeping. And none of us can get enough of just staring into your sweet little face.
