Baby Fever

Yesterday I met this lovely lady. She is to be called Brinley. David says he likes B-Rock better. To each his own. She is so sweet and tiny. I love when their little butt fits perfectly into your hand. Newborns are my favorite kind of baby. They don't pull anyone's hair or get mad when you change the TV from Dora. I'm just saying. (I'd make the pic bigger but its from my phone so its blurry).

51 weeks ago today I had myself one of these.

Ava was exactly the same size as B-Rock when she was born, not even one year ago. Yet the thought of her being that small is mind blowing. It really feels like I just brought her home from the hospital. I was definitely ready to have another baby.

He caught me mid-thumbs up. I'm hyped to hold another little lady. Its so exciting waiting to meet your little one. Then I met her.

She was teeny tiny. I wanted to eat her up. I would've, but they brought me a turkey sandwich instead. It was the most delicious soggy turkey sandwich I've ever eaten after being forced to starve myself for 18 hours.

Can I rewind to holding my little paco that day? She didn't squirm to get down or bite Alana's foot. She had a tiny little head (thank goodness), covered in fuzzy black hair.

She slept through everything. That's one of my favorite things about newborns. They sleep through anything.

Then she met her Daddy.

She met her big sister. (I did not put those dorky looking socks on Alana!)

Then we brought her home. She spent some quality time with her sister.

She spent more time with her sister. I couldn't believe how giant Alana looked next to 7 lb Ava.

She was one week old before I knew it. And it was the start of football so her daddy got to pick out her outfit.

She grew overnight. Now she's in her highchair next to me feeding herself Trix and drinking out of a sippy cup. When I let her down she will walk away to go watch cartoons with Alana.

In honor of Ava's first birthday I will probably do a few posts this week to show how much she's grown up this year and how depressed I am about it. Now if you'll excuse I'm going to go cry in my room.
