Has it really been an entire week?

I cannot believe I have been a mommy for a week already!(time sure does fly when you are having fun!) This week has really been awesome, yes, sleepless nights and days but great otherwise. Ruby is just so precious I cant stop myself from staring at her constantly. She is really fun and I think the most beautiful baby in the world!! This week has been easy so far with her, we are learning little by little and it seems almost normal to have her here. I already cannot imagine my life without her. I am truly blessed, Ruby is so far a very easy going little girl. She is calm and only cries when she has a messy diaper or is hungry.

Brian has been an incredible daddy too. He learned as much as he could at the hospital and was more then ready to get home and try it out on our own! It's so fun to watch him with his little princess. He loves cuddling with her and singing to her. Im sure she loves every minute she can get with her daddy. He helps me out lots, like in the middle of the night when I am holding Ruby and she all of a sudden poops, he will wake up and help to get me a new diaper and wipes. Today he learned that Ruby will pee with or without a diaper on! WE both love when daddy comes home and look forward to it everyday!

From the moment I laid my eyes on my brand new baby girl it was love at first sight. The minute they laid her on me I looked at her and I was overwhelmed with love. It was the most amazing experience, that the instant I laid my eyes on her I forgot about all the pain and I just wanted her to be with me forever. I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father for blessing us with Ruby. We have loved being parents and know that we are very blessed to be so lucky to have her in our lives.

Things that I love:
She is so smily and alert after I feed her
She has to have her hands by her face
She has a raspy cry and squeaks (so cute)
She is a good eater
Her dimple under her left eye
Her lips and eyelashes
I just love everything about her!!!

Some pictures of Ruby's first week! (yes, we are obsessed with her!)
