Lily's First Week

Whew, it's been an amazing, exhausting, exhilarating first week! I can't believe Lily is one week old today. I feel incredibly blessed to have this beautiful child as my daughter. When I look at her, all the struggles of the past five years disappear. She was worth every moment of heartache. Here is our first week in pictures:

My beautiful girl.

Open eyes!

Mr. C gets his first snuggle with Lily in recovery.

Lily's going home outfit.

Sweet face.

Dunkin meets Lily for the first time.

We decided to announce Lily's arrival with this not so subtle stork!

Our little family.

She is just adorable and I love the stork sign! I'm glad to hear you are all doing well. Thanks for your sweet comment! The wrap is a Maya Wrap from Amazon. Here's the link: http://www.amazon.com/Lightly-Padded-Sling-Carrier-Chocolate/dp/B001B1KMHS. I love it! Enjoy that precious little girl :)

Forgot to mention that all the hats came from Etsy.com. Just search "newborn knit hats" or "newborn beanies" and you'll find tons of sellers.
