Today Otis is 1 week old. Time has flown by and at the same time it is crazy to think that he has only been in this world for 7 days. He has learned so much in that time. It has definitely been a week of firsts for Mom, Dad, and Otis.
Otis has . . . .
-learned how to breathe
-made an art form of waking up- first lift the eyelids, then pry one eye open (the stink eye), and finally coax the other eye to open
-mastered nursing (he is quite the champion eater, often nursing every hour)
-gone on his first walk
-aced his first pediatrician check-up
-been to his first public place (coffee shop around the corner)
-started taking the world in
-captured our hearts
Brad and I have . . . .
-instantly become parents and are amazed at how natural it feels
-learned that a 2 hour stretch of sleep is a gift
-discovered that most household tasks can be done one-handed while holding the baby in the other
-gotten a ridiculous case of the giggles everytime we hear Otis fart or poop.
-mastered the stupid carseat and all of its confounded pieces
-appreciated family like never before and fallen in love with our newest family member
