11 Days




Man, am I glad its not two weeks ago. We were just getting to the hospital, and I was not a nice person.

I try to remember Esme's birthday every night around 7:45. Tonight it will be two weeks and I guess I'll have to start keeping track of her age in weeks, not days.

We've spent the last 14 days watching her sleep, trying to get some sleep, and trying to take her all in while making Eli feel important and loved. These are the moments we'll miss most when she gets big, so we have to take it all in. She doesn't cry much and makes lots of faces. I swear I've gotten a couple of smiles, and not just those falling-asleep-smiles that go along with fluttering eyes. Her most intimidating is when I'm nursing her and she scrunches up her nose, wrinkles her brow, and bites down as hard as she can with those little gums.

Right now she's sleeping peacefully in my arms while I type. Try not to be jealous of me. I will be in a few years. I am the luckiest person.
