3 weeks in

I can't believe it's already been over three weeks since we welcomed this sweet little girl into our lives. Every day, I wake up to her precious face and wonder how I ever got so blessed to be her mommy. I constantly stare at her little self, and all of her precious newborn parts, and I get this overwhelming sense of love and pride. We made this little human. I carried her in my belly for 9 months and went through three days of pain and 20 minutes of pushing to welcome her into our world. It's really surreal to look at her and think of how she came to be. The fact that she is the perfect blend of her daddy and me, our perfect little creation, is so amazing. It really makes you appreciate the miracle that babies are.

These past three weeks have passed by so quickly already, and it seems like she's growing so fast. I feel like the days are flying by and I wish time would just freeze for a while so I can soak up all of these moments -- the peacefulness of our 4am feedings, her funny little facial expressions, the way she snorts when she gets mad that her bottle isn't ready the second she wakes up from her naps... Every little thing she does makes me love her even more, and even though most days I'm exhausted and covered in spit-up, I have never felt so much joy.
