Dearest little bean,
Our precious Lark Story…you’re a week old and you’re the most amazing thing mama has ever laid eyes on.
Bringing you into the world was long, hard and ended in surprise because you were comfortable being upside down. But I wouldn’t change any minute of it. You’re the best reward for the hardest work. A c section is no joke, and mama had a bit of a hard time afterwards. But dad changed everything and made the rest of the world disappear when he got on one knee beside my hospital bed after we welcomed you into the world. He’s truly the best man I know, and I couldn’t be happier about marrying my best friend. Your day of birth was the best day of my life to date.
This first week with you has been so wonderful. You’re so sweet and such a good baby. Dad and I like to high-five each other sometimes for making such a rad baby. We just stare at you all the time and with your Nene here, you’re never put down, between the 3 of us…I’m sure we will regret that soon enough. You’re just so tiny and delicate, we can’t get enough!
Mama has had lots of pain and trying to rest up and recover, but it’s been a great week, and you’re feeding like a champ!! You’re the tiniest thing, and doctor was concerned you lost too much weight. Dad and I were letting you sleep at first, so you were having less feedings. But you love to sleep! So now mama has to wake you every 2 hours to eat, but we’re working hard at it and you’re gaining now. You poop like a champ too…just sayin’…
You’re beautiful, healthy and so much fun. We couldn’t be luckier.
So glad you’re ours.
