Our sweet Hope is seven weeks old today!
I can't even put into words how much joy she brings to our little family.
She has changed so much in just one week.
I don't know how much she weighs, but I do know that she's busting out of her newborn clothes!! And when we pick her up, she feels solid and strong.
Hope has a very pleasant demeanor and, when she's awake, the most soulful eyes.
I love that she's starting to enjoy small periods of playtime - whether it's looking at our faces... exploring her baby gym... or entertained by her brother singing.
There is nothing better in life than getting to know your own child. They come to us knowing and wise and ready to teach us.
They may pick up things from us along the way... personality traits, habits... but they are their own people and it's our job to let them show us who they are - not try to make them be something we want.
We can't wait for you to reveal more of yourself to us, Hope!
We will love you unconditionally and help you accomplish your dreams.
Happy seven weeks, sweet Hope!
