One week

It’s hard to believe, but our little Amelia (or lil’ melia as we call her) is one week old. It took me almost all day to take this picture, load it to the computer, then upload here, so I’m sorry there aren’t more. Some days Amelia sleeps a lot. Today was not one of those days. She needed a little help staying asleep, so we spent a lot of time snuggled on the couch together. I also spent a little time on youtube trying to find a swaddle method that the little monkey can’t wiggle out of. I think we may have a winner…tonight will tell.

For the most part, Amelia sleeps in 2-3 hour increments during the day, and 3-4 hour stretches at night. Not too shabby for 1 week old. She’s doing great eating too – every 2-4 hours.

She’s actually sleeping in her little basket all by herself right now, so I’m off to do the dishes, then to bed. No time to waste.

ps- for those of you who aren’t on facebook, you can find more pictures of Amelia at our friend Sarah’s blog. She’s a great photographer and took pictures for us both at the hospital and here at home. We already can’t wait for our next photoshoot!
