One Week

Apologies are in order for our disappearance. However, there will be more on that later. 
Because first of all, we would love to announce the arrival of our sweet baby Paisley.

Paisley came to us on March 11, 2012 at 9:51am.
7 pounds 5 ounces
20 inches long

We will write a birth story, but for now we would like to write about our precious girl's first week of life!

<> Paisley is a very big eater. She came out sucking on her fist! We had to limit her at first so her body wouldn't project all the food back up!
<> Because of her large appetite, she did not lose any of her birth weight. Most babies go down about a pound. Not Paisley. She was already heavier than her birth weight at her three day appointment, so her pediatrician said that we could go ahead and skip the two week appointment! Goodness!
<> When lying on her stomach, she likes to lift her head and look at whoever is holding her. So precious!
<> She starting smiling at five days old.
<> Paisley is already a little princess. There is no putting her down, because she loves, loves, loves to be snuggled. We have absolutely no problem with this!
<> She has gone up to five-and-a-half ours of sleep at night!
<> She already recognizes voices, and especially loves her Dada's deep singing voice. It puts her to sleep every time.
<> She is very attentive and follows the voice of whoever is talking to her.
<> As most babies, she loves looking at lights!
<> Paisley snores in her sleep... Just like her Dad and big brother!
<> She is the world's biggest snorter [when awake]. She is always snorting!
<> She is one lucky lady to have such a loving brother. Ryker continually gives her hugs and kisses. He also tries to help with everything [giving her a pacifier, feeding her, throwing diapers at her when she needs a change, taking her socks off for her, even trying to help wipe her cute bottom during changes, etc.]. 
They are too cute together! We are so happy that they have each other.

We are so blessed to have this sweet, little spirit in our home who is so perfect in every way.
It is a miracle to think that only sixteen months ago, we were writing about Ryker's first week.
We are too lucky!

Happy One Week Sweet Paisley!!!
