The Life of a 1-Week-Old
Life is busy for our little 1-week-old. She has a lot to accomplish each day.
Such as staring out the window at the early morning sun. There’s a lot for those adjusting eyes to figure out.
And resting her sweet little head, while digesting her breakfast. That belly is always hard at work.
(Nothing’s cuter than a little milky drool, right?)
And throwing out a grin or two. Gas related? Probably.
But she tends to turn up the corners of that mouth when I tickle her chubby cheeks.
(11 pound babies come out knowing how to smile, I guess.)
She also tries so hard to figure out who’s talking to her and what we may be telling her. And possibly wonders why we’re constantly gushing over her and smothering her poor squishy cheeks with kisses.
It’s also a lot of work to fill that diaper. But with a little concentration, she’s mastering that task quite well.
After all that, she usually needs a little break…….and passes out for a while.
After a long nap, she repeats the above tasks several times throughout the day………and then we start again the next day.
Yep, she stays pretty busy.
It’s hard work being a newborn.
And we love that she’s getting the hang of it here in our home.
