Evie is seven weeks old today and I can’t help but to sit here and wonder how in the heck that happened. Those seven weeks feel like they have passed in only a few days. I dreamed of this – of her and my perfect little family – for so long that it is hard to believe I finally have it. It sometimes makes me wonder what I did to deserve all of this.
Evie is growing more and more each day. It seems like every time I look at her she’s a little bit bigger, but I’m loving her chunky little thighs right now.
Even though we’re still waiting for that first big grin, I can easily determine her mood by the look on her face. She’s very expressive, but my favorite (even if it’s a little mean to admit) is when she’s about to cry and her little bottom lip puckers out. If I could ever catch it on camera you would see what I mean. It is just adorable.
Unfortunately, I’ve been seeing that bottom lip sticking out a bit too much the last few days. Little miss seems to have a sensitive stomach and has been having some rough days and evenings this week. About the only thing that comforts her is snuggling with mama in just the right position. I don’t mind too much but it does make it pretty difficult to get anything else done.
