Life Lately

In pictures for your viewing pleasure.

This little girl loves to sleep during the day....

and is wide awake at night ready to party.  If only I
were in the partying mood at that time.

The pink bow on her onesie was beyond adorable.  Seriously,
I was dying when I put her in it.  Dressing a girl is so. much. fun.

We went to Snoqualmie Falls today.  Beautiful.

Max loves his Auntie.

I love my Max.

He loves his little sister, but it looks like he's up to no good.
Emma Facts
-We went to her 7-10 day checkup and she now weighs 7lbs 14oz, and is 21.5in long! 
-She could eat all day if I let her.  (I don't let her.)
-She is a pooping machine. (In case you were wondering.  You know you were.)
-She loves to snuggle and I love snuggling her.
-She always has a camera in her face and she doesn't complain.
-Her cry is loud, and she is quite demanding.  (Already a diva is training.)
-We are sooooo happy to have her here with us, and complete our family.
Max Facts
-The kid loves showering his sister with kisses, and always asks to hold her.  (He no longer says "it".)
-He is obsessed with Where The Wild Things Are, and loves reading the story to me.
-He has taken a love to soccer, but insists that he is still Mike Smith and Shane Doan. (I tell him they play hockey not soccer, but there's no arguing with him.)
-He knows how to get what he wants by saying, "I looooveee youuuuuu." 
Mom Facts
-It's been two weeks tomorrow since Emma came into the world and life is good.
-No baby blues this time around. (I could be jinxing myself though...)
-I'm breastfeeding this go around and it's been great! (Well, once the pain went away. Nursing is no joke.)

  1. Awwww, I love the photos! Newborn snuggles are wonderful! I am sure she will get her days and nights figured out.

    My older daughter still always asks to hold our littlest. Hooray for big sibling love.

    I hope things continue to go well for you. Breastfeeding can be tough, but its beautiful if you can work it out.
