The First Week

This first week with Amelia has been quite an adventure! We all love her loads, some of us less gently then others... 

Here is a picture overview of this week! 

Day One: 
So small and sweet. We are quite smitten.

Day Two: 

Gwenna loves the baby toes. 

Lael very pleased with her new cousin. And feeling ready for her own baby sibling, coming this January!
So glad to be home!
Day Three: 
Who needs a pacifier when you have a big sister?
Two of her five great grandparents... Sadly, I haven't gotten a pic with her and her great grandma Bond who has been over lots and helped so much with food!



Day Four: 
Meeting more family. Caleb said, "she is pink, just like her shirt." 
Gideon and Amelia, cousin buddies.


Getting out for a walk down the block to a delicious dinner at a neighbor friend's. she made the blanket A is wrapped in! 
Day Five: 

My piglet. So pink and such a little nose!

Daddy dates starting early. Walking to Safeway and Starbucks while I rest.


Day six: 
So much loving going on around here! Today G tried to pick A up alone for the first time. Terrifying.
G took about 30 pics of Amelia on my phone this morning. This is the only one that turned out, I love it!
Lest anyone think I am gliding about in a flowing skirt, all collected and calm. This morning had no shower, no make up and quite a few tears. Worth it. 

Relaxing with uncle Desmond and Shauna

Day seven!!!
First nap together!

Being born is such hard work!

Camping Success!!!

Well we did it! And what a hoorah! I figure I had better get my pictures up right away in case something distracts me this week(: lots of family, food, adventure and love. Also, lots of parenting as the three two year olds are not used to spending quite so much time together. 


The girls woke a bit too early, so they got to start the day with a little movie time... No, they did not both sleep in that one play pen!
Rod and Justin's boat was quite a hit.
Love these two.
