Life as a Mom

I haven't written for awhile because I've just been SO busy. Time is just flying by! My sweet Hannah Jean is now 11 pounds and getting bigger each day. She is 6 weeks and 5 days old. She has been smiling up a storm and making all sorts of adorable cooing noises. She is very alert during the day and loves staring up at the ceiling. She loves laying outside on a blanket and staring at the sky. She is a happy baby who usually only gets fussy on occasion. She already sleeps 5-7 hours at night! Hannie is such a sweet little girl, such a great baby. We are so very lucky. Never have I been so exhausted and deliriously happy at the same time. There are certainly tough moments and I unfortunately had to deal with some post partum depression which thankfully has been helped by medication. My whole life has changed. It's no longer my own, but I wouldn't change it for the world. I never knew I could love someone so much. I often get emotional and weepy while holding her and watching her play because it's overwhelming....to love someone that much. When she smiles, I completely melt inside. There is nothing more beautiful than my daughters smile. My family is completely smitten with sweet Hannah. My Mom and My Mema (my Mom's Mom) are just so in love. Hannah's middle name Jean is after My Mema, who I consider my very best friend. And she was born on My Pepa's (my Mom's Dad) birthday. I just love that. My brother Mike and his wife are so wonderful with her. We've chosen them to become her Godparents. Even all our families doggies are in love with Hannah (there are SIX of them!). My two, Dexter and Emmie love cuddling up close to her, Dexter especially. He loves to nap as long as part of him is cuddled up to her. It's funny to think I was once nervous about how the dogs would do with her! I am going to try and post more here because I want to have a way to remember everything! If you want to see photos of her please just friend me on my TWW facebook page! I have tons of photos there! http://www.facebook.com/kellie.rose.39
