I can’t believe how fast this week has gone. The Wee One is already a week old. I thought that time moved fast before I had a baby, but now it just seems to whiz by. Before you know it, he will be four weeks old and no longer a newborn. His umbilical cord seems like it’s close to falling off and he’s already had the second bath of his life. (He smells delicious. Love it.) This week, I have learned that I can sleep very little and still function without feeling like I’m going to die or puke or something, I have learned that burping a newborn halfway through a feeding is extremely important for saving the cleanliness of an outfit (his or mine), and I have experienced such immense and intense love for this little being. We have created this beautiful baby and have the privilege of loving him during this first week of his life and for the many weeks and months and years to come.
Happy One Week, Sam! May 20, 2008
