First week in pictures

Dear Elliot,
I still need to write up your wonderful birth story, but just haven't gotten around to it yet (turns out these baby creatures require a lot of time and attention!). In the meantime, I thought I'd share a few pictures of your first week of life on the outside.

You are seriously just the sweetest, most adorable baby ever. I realize I'm a bit biased, but really, you are pretty amazing. Your big chubby cheeks, your long feet, the way you grab onto my fingers when you're sleeping, the crazy look you get in your eyes as your root around, looking for mama's breast when you're hungry, the little cooing noises you make as you fall asleep, the warmth of your body against my chest when we snuggle. I am in awe and in love with every little part of you.

I can't believe you're already a whole week old, and that you're really mine.





















 We are so happy you are here, Baby.

Love,
Mom

I have followed your blog for a while, but never posted. This post is just full of so much happy I can barely take it. He is gorgeous. I am so happy for you. I know that Stevie is filled with joy on a daily basis watching her precious little brother.

Also, I chuckled at the part about "crazy eyes while rooting" because my baby girl did the same thing!
