1 Week Old Rowan

Oh my goodness, I'm finally updating this post!

Having Rowan home for the first week was a real test for my family.
Waking up throughout the night to change her diaper and feed her was something new for us.
It's been about two years since we cared for a newborn.
We were very tired for the first few days.
But we got through it.

Since I chose to exclusively breastfeed, now that's where I was really tested.
"Would I be able to do this?
Will I give up?
Do I have the support?"
The answers were easy.
"Yes, I can do this.
I will NOT give up.
I have one very supportive husband."
As I'm writing this, Rowan is 6 weeks old.
We have a freezer full of breast milk, while Rowan and I have no signs of quitting our breastfeeding sessions.
She has really bonded well with me.
Looks to us we might have a Mommy's girl.
The way she holds on to me and my clothes while nursing is one thing I love.
How she gently rests her head against my chest after nursing and dozes off into her slumber is sweet.
Or how she looks up to me with a smile in between her nursing has me swooning.
She's beautiful.
She's our little 7.5 pounds of love.
Our world.
The center of our universe.

We love you so much Rowan!

Happy one week my love.

A few photos from this past week.
(Not including photos from phone,
those will be uploaded at the end of the month.)

Of course I can't Leave out Levia.
Here's Levia playing with her birthday gift from her Aunt Rose.
A set of Ninja Turtle toys.
As you can see she loves them very much!
