Hello World!

(this was your last picture taken inside mommy! 38 weeks!)

Lillian Rose Sugg was finally born March 9th, 2011 at exactly 11:30 a.m.
A good and healthy 8 lbs, 13oz and 22 inches long.

She’s officially a week today and my oh my has it been a beautiful week.
It was a rough delivery, but I finally got to meet my birdie after 2 or 3 hours after my surgery.
Mama was a little loopy, but my first glance at your face brought tears to my eyes and they just kept rolling down my face.
You were so beautiful, and daddy put your face against mine, and you tried to nurse on my cheek. You are seriously the most beautiful thing i’ve ever laid my eyes on.

We’ve had a rough start, but breastfeeding is getting easier, and you’re gaining back some ounces thank goodness. It seems like you’re on me constantly, and if you’re not, you’re sucking on my nose or your little bitty hands. You’re just like you’re daddy in that way with food.

You’ve got daddy wrapped around your tiny fingers already. He’ll just look into your eyes and tears will form in his eyes. It’s truly precious, and he loves you so much and is learning how to bounce and pat you at the same time and it’s the cutest thing; daddy trying to multi-task.

You are truly the cutest thing, and my kitty pictures have been replaced with pictures of your chubby cheeks. You’re brothers won’t come near me when i’ve got you in my arms, and it makes me sad because i’d love to cuddle you both but I suppose that will take time…
You make the cutest faces and even smile in your sleep. I keep dressing you in all your newborn outfits for fear that you won’t fit them here in a couple of days due to your chunky-ness and appetite. So here are a couple of pictures to sum up your first week home birdie:

We love you so much and I can’t wait to watch you grow and grow.
Onward with more love!
