One Week!

IMG_0496

Baby Anya is a week old as of yesterday, which means it is time for some photo cuteness and a quick update. We are all soaking in her cuteness and sleepy cuddles. Lewis is doing great with her. He loves petting her soft hair and cheeks, and is oh so gentle with her. He has, as expected, gotten a bit jealous at times when Mommy was busy with Anya and couldn’t immediately come help him, but overall he is handling the change very well. We’re lucky that Chris gets to stay home for a couple of weeks while we all work on settling in and adjusting to new routines.

Anya started out very very sleepy, waking just long enough to nurse and get her diaper changed between each stretch of sleep. She is starting now to have a bit more awake time between eating and sleeping, and I was pleasantly surprised that she stayed awake and alert for a full hour this morning before drifting back off to dream land. In typical newborn fashion she is happy to sleep in her bassinet during the day but wants nothing to do with it at night, when we’d really like her to be there. We are co-sleeping for now while she adjusts, but also working towards getting her used to her own sleep space since co-sleeping is really not our preferred method.

"Enough pictures mom!" She amazes me with her ability to roll from her back over onto either side. Lewis had no interest in rolling of any sort until he was almost a year old.

After taking some solo pictures of Anya we asked Lewis to sit and hold her for a few more pictures. He wasn’t very interested at first.

This picture cracks me up. When we first sat them down he just stared down at the floor and wouldn’t look at the camera or smile.

After a minute he decided to warm up to the camera and gave us plenty of smiles and silly faces.
