3 weeks old

I'm getting to see the world from my daughter's perspective as she focuses so much attention on little things. I love when she looks up at me and a smile spreads across her face or when she calms right down for a few moments when Wes holds and talks to her. Today she spent quite a bit of time on her playmat and I watched as she kicked the dangling toys and looked at her reflection in the mirror. She was fussy last night and her and I didn't get much sleep, but I wouldn't trade these moments for anything.

In other news, Emily attended her first church service on Sunday and did so well! We also made it to bible study tonight and she slept right through until we got back home. Wes and I are looking forward to raising her in church and teaching her about God's unconditional love toward her.

2 weeks old

When you have a newborn, it's the little things that get you through the day. What were those things today? Well every evening, it's that hot 15 minute shower. I don't remember the exact words, but the extra push through the day was when my mother-in-law encouraged me and told me that I was doing so well as a mom. Thanks for the sweet words mama Hughes. It meant a lot! Lastly, it's those little facial expressions that Emily makes or her focus on something new that brings a tear and a smile. She has my heart. Happy 2 weeks little Em!
