Kensington Grace (Weeks 1 & 2)

Wednesday, May 17, 2017

I can't even begin to wrap my head around the fact that tomorrow we'll already have a two week old. Until I can get a minute to sit down and actually write her birth story, I thought I'd just share baby K's life in pictures over the past couple of weeks.

1// My first morning with you in the hospital. We had plenty of visitors but I managed to soak up as much cuddle time as I could steal away from the rest of the group. You slept through everyone coming to see you, but we've got the pictures as proof for you later. 

2// This was taken right after your first bath, which you HATED. You cried the whole time, but once we got you some skin to skin contact right after you felt much better. 

3// Sweet baby in a dockatot. This thing has been a lifesaver for co-sleeping. You're not the biggest fan of being swaddled but when you're being fussy it does the trick to get you to sleep. 

4// I have so many sweet baby outfits I can't wait to put you in, but you're still just too tiny to fit into most of them. Yesterday we bought a couple of preemie outfits and those are only a little bit better fitting on you. You're just our teeniest tiniest little thing. 

5// I'm just so in love with those big baby eyes. The jury is still out on what color eyes you might have.

6// We had to take you back to the hospital because of your jaundice levels. You spent all night under the UV lights which was like little baby torture for you, and when you were allowed to sleep next to us you were so much more content. 

7// Your little milk drunk baby face makes us laugh every single time. 

8// You got to meet your great, great grandmother for the first time on our very first Mother's Day. You are surrounded by generations of family and I know it'll be quite awhile before you understand how important and wonderful that is. 

9// As soon as we put you in the car you pretty much fall asleep like a little angel baby. Those chubby cheeks just melt my heart. 

Daniel and I are just soaking up every single minute of baby cuddles while we can. Today I introduced baby wearing, and I feel like I just discovered life's greatest creation. We're so happy, so tired and just so in love with our little bird. I think we're going to be pretty great at this parenting thing.
