One Week Old

Dear Lucy,
It’s hard to believe you’ve already been in our lives for one week! It seems like just yesterday we were meeting you for the first time. We fall more in love with you every day and could spend all day, every day just staring at your adorable little face.

I love the way you snuggle up to me and your daddy and fall asleep against us. I love the way you smile while you dream. Sometimes, you squeak when you smile which makes it sound like you’re laughing. I always wonder what you’re dreaming about.

At one week old, you’re the best baby we could have imagined. You sleep most of the day and really only get fussy when you’re hungry. You usually don’t even cry when you need your diaper changed! Getting you to fall asleep is another story. You fight hard at bed time, but when you eventually give in and fall asleep, you are dead to the world until morning when we have to wake you up. We love the fact that you’re already sleeping through the night, and if that’s the reward, we’ll take the difficulty in getting you to fall asleep. šŸ™‚

You also sleep in the most awkward positions. I never understand how they can be comfortable, but they must be.

Your facial expressions always make us laugh, and we enjoy taking pictures of you and coming up with funny captions for them.

We also celebrated our first holiday with you this week — Thanksgiving — and what an appropriate holiday it was since we thank God every day for bringing you into our lives. Our lives will never be the same, and we couldn’t be happier about it.

    Beautiful post! Children are SUCH a blessing. I bet you had the most awesome Thanksgiving. Sleeping through the night??? Oh my, I’m envious. We were NOT blessed with good sleepers! Glad it’s going really well for you!

    She’s so adorable!! Did your pediatrician say it’s okay that she sleeps thru the night? I don’t know how many hours she’s sleeping but you may need to wake her up to feed her since you’re having problems w/her gaining weight. Just a thought. I never had the blessing of a child that sleeps thru the night. šŸ™‚
