Into weeks...

Here we are one week later... we can no longer measure her age in days and her face is beginning to fill out as she has been putting on weight... she has mastered the skill of eating and yesterday took her first bottle from her Daddy with much success... she gazes up at us and still isn't quite able to focus, but she is (as her Auntie said) trying so hard to connect... those gazes make me feel like she is looking right through me and into my soul and the recognition when she hears my voice and quiets makes me wonder what I did to deserve this perfect creature...our little girl is already growing up on us and I honestly wish I could push pause and just savor the deliciousness of a newborn for a bit longer.


I want to both share her with the world and lock her away at the same time - does that make sense?


Kiki, Poppa, and Auntie Kerry traveled down for a visit this afternoon. They came with an entire dinner which they prepared here for us leaving us with yummy leftovers and no dishes - WONDERFUL!!! They even brought her a funfetti birthday cake to commemorate her first week birthday. YUM!


We have our weight check with the doctor tomorrow afternoon and we are crossing our fingers that she has been packing on the pounds so we won't have to wake her up to eat. Yes, you read right - we have to wake her up to eat. Overnights are a bit more difficult and she often gets up 15 minutes prior to the alarm looking for a meal, but generally we need to do the waking and rousing and even at times the "angering" to coax those gorgeous slate grey blue eyes awake. Angering in case you were wondering entails undressing her, removing her diaper, putting cool water on her face and chest and anything else that will get her angry and pouty and even screaming. It isn't pretty but when you need to feed her you need to feed her...


Here is your daily Caroline fix...
