Isabelle's First Week

I can't believe our baby girl is already a week old!
Everyday we are truly amazed by the immense amount of love she has created.
Our hearts are lifted by her coos, her "smiles", and gentle spirit.

During the pregnancy I had prepared myself for sleepless nights.
I read that it was "okay" if you didn't feel an immediate
bond at your child's birth.
I feared that I would be scared by her cry.
And none of this has been in our lives.

We have been blessed with such an easy baby. My parents have been here to help, and I'm embarrassed to say Thomas and I
are not sleep deprived.
Bond we did.
No one prepared me that when you deliver a baby,
you deliver your heart.
The love for your child is without end and pure.
I have found Thomas and I are not scared by her infrequent cries.
We are calm and overcome by wanting to meet her every need.

These past days have been the most meaningful of my life.
I treasure every moment I have with her.
Sweet Isabelle.
What amazing days these are..

How true it is. And that sweetness just grows each day. You can't believe how great they are and how amazing each little thing they do is. Its only been 6 months for us, but the changes are crazy and amazing and just expand you heart even more. Peter's heart "melts" everyday when he comes home from work. :)

I wonder will we feel the say way when they are 14? :)
