Two Weeks & Four Days Old





This week I learned that:
a) The Lansinoh disposable nursing pads are the most ingenious invention. I tried for the first while to get by just using my washable ones, but they chaffed & hurt so much that I had to go searching for an alternative. These new ones feel fabulous & I'm no longer walking around with permanently cold nipples.
b) Sometimes you have to take a deep breath & know that you are doing your best, even if your little one is crying & you feel like you can't fix it. Thank goodness I have a partner who will remind me that I'm doing a great job.
c) Gretchen loves being held by Ryan's mom. So much.
d) If she is fussing, putting her in her snowsuit & taking her out in the Baby Björn will cause her to calm down & fall asleep almost immediately.
e) She loves to be worn, especially in the upright position in our Heart to Heart sling.
f) I can feed her (at least on the left side) while she is in the sling. I haven't quite figured out the right side, but being able to feed her on the left with no hands (!) is amazing. She's so snug & happy in there.
g) We love her more & more everyday. I think we may burst.

I'm going to burst if I keep looking at her too! She is incredibly beautiful... and it doesn't seem to matter how many times I've told you already. And I think you're doing an awfully good job - It inspires me completely.

I´ve seen a lot of cute babies, but your daugther is the most adorable little thing I can imagine.

She is wonderful.

I wish you all the best.
