Vera: One Week

My dear sweet Vera,

Happy one week birthday! I can’t believe how much you’ve grown and changed since you were born. You are so beautiful, and I fall more and more in love with you every day. You’ve already passed your birth weight (you weighed 7 lbs., 13 oz. at the doctor’s today!) and you are filling out everywhere. You’re a great little nurser!I love your sweet newborn softness and your adorable baby hair. I love when your hair sticks out everywhere like a little birdie. I love nursing you and sharing special moments together, like when you curl up and fall asleep on my chest. I love to rub the soft little spot at the back of your neck. Everything about you is sweet: your lips, your nose, your ears, your toes…

You have such pretty eyes and I love it when you look at me. Your little baby cry is so cute! I love that when you need me at night you know that a soft little “eh” noise is all it takes to get my attention. You love to stretch and you are such a strong girl already. We have to watch you closely so you don’t roll yourself off the couch or propel your body off our laps!

Your Daddy adores you too. He is so tender with you and loves to hold you and speak softly to you. He has done such a good job taking care of you and Mommy this week.

We look forward to continuing to watch you grow!

We love you so very much, little Vera!

    Don’t blink! This is a really special time as a new mom, and I hope things are going well for you! Take it easy, and don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it, whether it’s needing someone to wash your dishes, or just sit with you for a while, it can be just what you need to get through a day :)

    Love the picture with the beautiful quilt and cloth diaper :)
