After 9 weeks and 2 days of life, I’m finally getting around to blogging about our daughter! Zoe Agnes was born in dramatic fashion on June 12, 2012 – 2 weeks and 5 days before her due date. Fortunately, the little lady was super healthy and her mama managed to recover over the next few weeks.
Since her birth our life has been a whirlwind of washing bottles, rocking, swaying, shushing and googling things you’d never think you would ever google in your life. Zoe has taken over our home, our life and our hearts. Even on her most cranky and exasperating days, we take one look at her sleeping peacefully and melt at how dang cute she is. Every single day is a learning experience for all of us. Some days are absolutely amazing. Lately Zoe has discovered smiling, ceiling fans and making noise. It’s incredible to watch her discover the world. And other days, she’ll snort formula out her nose and we must figure out if that’s normal or warrants a call to our pediatrician (who has already seen us a few extra times thanks to mom paranoia).
We are anxious for our little gal to get out of this stage of development though. The crankiness, gas pains and unpredictable sleep patterns are getting old. We are hoping that she grows out of some of this over the next 6 weeks.
And now, I better get to bed, because the munchkin has an 1.5 hour head start on me….and who knows how many hours in a row she will sleep this time.
Here is our little peanut and our life over the last 9 weeks!
