10 Days Old

Caroline, you are 10 days old today! 

These first 10 days have been a blur. But I don't want to forget the details of this precious time...

Your favorite place to be is snuggled with mommy in my big white bathrobe. It's the one fail proof Caroline soother. I've sat awake late at night with you rocking you or walking the house while you stare up at me with wide eyes happy to be snuggled with mommy.

You are doing great with your weight, yesterday at your last pediatrician appointment you were back up to your birth weight and one ounce over. My day was made! We can now let you sleep longer between feedings which means I am also getting more sleep! 

Your premie size clothes are getting a tiny bit more snug. You still wear mostly newborn size clothes (because that's what I had) but we roll up the sleeves and feet.

Your daddy calls you "Little Miss No Butt" because you were so tiny when you were born you really had almost no butt. But you're putting on some baby fat now. 

You do not like having your diaper changed or getting a bath. You also want to be held all the time so we don't lay you down in your napper unless you're fast asleep because otherwise you start crying. You are also not a fan of the car seat so we've had to develop a method: we put you in the car seat while asleep, then tuck a blanket around you so you feel swaddled. 

We love you, sweet C!
