I couldn't believe the day my baby turned one week old! How could time fly by so fast! I was going to be so good about documenting everything and posting on the blog and taking pictures! Turns out it's harder to balance all that and enjoy soaking it up too! Time is flying by, and our little angel will be THREE weeks old in just a couple short days, but I still wanted to document week 1...
At the one week mark we started seeing those bright eyes more often! We can already tell she's growing so fast! Her eyes are still dark gray, and we can't wait to see if they turn blue or brown!!
Ava Grace discovered her love-hate relationship with her swing! She loves it, but she hates that it makes her fall asleep! lol She already fights sleep because she doesn't want to miss anything!
Her first week, she did lots of napping in her Moses basket. We can already tell that she's going to outgrow it quickly, but for now it's a very convenient place her for to nap during the day when we are all in the living room!
The only hitch is that she's still a side-sleeper and the bumper in the basket makes us a little nervous, so we make sure to keep a really close eye on her when she's in there! :-) She likes to stare at the polk-a-dots though!
We also broke out the play mat! She has really enjoyed laying on it! We caught a little smile in the above shot - she's been smiling more and more - but we're pretty sure it's involuntary and associated with gas bubbles! lol
The play mat makes a good place to naps too! She's not too picky, when she finally crashes, she'll nap just about anywhere! ;-)
Ava Grace is such a good baby! She almost never cries. She doesn't mind being laid down awake to "play" most of the time, but she LOVES to be held! She's just the most precious think and we are so thankful to have her in our lives!
