The First Week

by verdemama on June 5, 2011

Amazing things can happen in a very short amount of time. One week ago today I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and life as I knew it is forever changed. Juna Katrien has slipped rather seamlessly into our day-to-day family life and I am bursting at the seams with joy and gratitude.

Two days old

Juna is just the sweetest little thing. She loves to nurse and cuddle, and she cozied up in her sling today like a true pro. She seems to be figuring out this whole day vs. night thing, which took Orion ages to understand. Last night, for example, she only woke up once in the night to nurse, and went right back to sleep when she was done. So don’t hate on me, new moms, but I’m actually feeling fairly well rested these days. I’m trying not to get too cocky, seeing how she’s only a week old, but if she keeps this up I’m going to have to buy her a pony.

Six days old

Other than being a champion sleeper, she’s incredibly strong. Girlfriend can already hold her head up to look around and she can roll from side to side like she’s been doing it forever. (Which she has, actually. She was a very active wombmate as well.) She’s probably going to be an early mover and shaker who will try to keep up with her active big bro.

Orion is adapting very well, too. In the week or so before she was born, he would ask me every day, “Baby out?” He was crazy excited to meet her for the first time and now that she’s here he loves to hold her and kiss her and hug her.

Unfortunately he also occasionally likes to throw a toy or cup at her, so we have to keep our eyeballs glued to his whereabouts 24/7. But hey, he’s two years old. What do you expect?

This is our new reality, and it’s pretty much the greatest thing ever.
