3 Weeks

Matilda tuned a whopping 3 weeks old on Sunday. 3 weeks of snuggles. 3 weeks of diapers. 3 weeks of getting to know each other.

Milestones for this week include:

  • First mall visit with friends Max, Otto and Summer
  • First true grip on Mama's fingers 
  • First lunch out (and VERY public breastfeeding) with Grandma
  • First "night out" for Nate and Greta--which included a 30 minute walk around the hood without Matilda courtesy of Grandma
We are learning more about our little peanut every day. What cries mean what. How she likes to be held when she has the hiccups (which are my #1 enemy in life right now..well that and gas that keeps Matilda up). How to function on very little sleep. Etc. Etc. Etc.

I can''t believe Tillie has already been in our lives for 3 weeks. While some of the days admittedly seem quite long, I can't believe how fast it has already gone. Looking back on her hospital pictures I already feel like she looks pretty different and is definitely more alert and aware of her surroundings. As her pediatrician said: "She has a very intense look about her for such a young baby"...

I'd like to say she gets that from Nate, but unfortunately......I think it may come from me. :)
