The First Three Weeks

Caroline is three weeks old today and we have learned A LOT in these three short weeks. A LOT.

Here is what I’ve learned:

1. Caroline is amazing. She is perfectly healthy and happy and we are in love.

2. Newborn babies require a lot of diapers. Sometimes 4 within 15 minutes:

3. Michael is great at changing diapers. Really fast – maybe a little too fast.

4. Baby poop can be projectile. I have heard of projectile vomit or projectile spit up before, but I have now learned that it is possible for poop to shoot across the room as well.

5. Baby poop is difficult to remove from carpet. See #4 above.

6. A large percentage of the conversation in my life is now about baby poop.

7. Leaving the house is now a luxury.

8. Caroline is Houdini when it comes to swaddling. She can get her hands out of even the tightest of wrapping jobs.

9. The pacifier is my friend.

10. It is possible to do all kinds of things with one hand. (example: typing this blog post)

These past three weeks have been a whirlwind, but it has been unreal to be able to get to know Caroline and watch her grow (even just a little bit). I have learned that Michael is an AMAZING dad and I absolutely love watching him take care of her get to know her.

It’s a whole new world and we are loving it!

    Why was the ad by google “Adopt a newborn quickly”? Are you hinting at something?

    we learned about projectile poop with karis (i call it rainbow poop). in fact, a rainbow of yellow-stained poop remained on the wall for a year until we painted over it. that stuff stains, man.. love your post. and she loves you, too. guaranteed.
