One Week Old

It is hard to believe our baby girl is a week old today. The week has flown by. It's amazing how with each kid the time just seems to go by a little more quickly. It has been a fun week getting to know our new little addition.
The kids are still smitten with her. Gavin and Ellie both took her picture to school today to show their classmates. Gavin's teacher said he carried the picture around all day long. He would constantly kiss the picture, rub his cheek to it, and managed to show everyone he saw his new little sister. Yesterday while he was holding her, he decided he was going to teach her the song "Head shoulders knees and toes." As he sung to her he touched each little part of her body. He definitely is loving being a big brother. Ellie loves to know what her sister is doing at ALL times. She sings to her Twinkle-Twinkle Little Star and He's Got the Whole World in His Hands. She loves to help us change her diapers and used the word "nasty" to describe what she saw yesterday. Ellie was also very eager to help give Hadley her first bath this week. We couldn't be more proud of the way Gavin and Ellie have taken to the big brother/ big sister role. They love their little sister.
Frank and I are trying to get some sleep. I have had milk supply issues this go around and little Miss Hadley eats every 1.5 hours. Because of my low milk supply I have been pumping after every feeding and taking fenugreek pills. So that means I feed her for about 30 minutes, pump 30 minutes and then get 30 minutes of nothing on me before it's time to start all over again. Luckily I think things are turning around and today has been a MUCH better day. I think my supply is getting better- THANK GOODNESS!!
Anyway, I took the time today to make a slideshow of pictures from Hadley's first week. Hope you all enjoy!

Love the pics!!! She is precious and you look great! I drank a lot of that herbal tea "Mother's Milk" with both boys....I think it really helped. I hope the supply multiplies!!

Hi Lacey- thanks for your comment! And yes I do remember you, because Carly told me the story of your precious little miracle baby! The day after I met you was our first ultrasound and we found out that day that there had been two babies for us as well, though one was very underdeveloped. At our ultrasound the next week, there was only one baby, but with a strong heartbeat. Congratulations on your beautiful little girl!!! Your pictures make me anxious for mine!! :)
