She's One Week Old

Our little Morgan is 1 week and 1 day old. Life with her is HEAVEN. Granted, we've had help (my mom, my mother-in-law, and my sister-in-law), but we've tried to do so much on our own while they're here. She's had her fussy days (and I'm sure there's more -- and worse -- where that came from) but I wouldn't trade this life for the world!

Morgan has the biggest, brightest eyes I've ever seen. We like to just sit and look at them. I love to hold her and smell her -- and she has the cutest little lips! She does this thing where she's searching for something to suck on -- she looks like a little bird!

From day one, everyone has said she looks like her daddy. Well, that hasn't changed. I probably hear it more everyday. So I guess the verdict is in. And he LOVES her. I mean, of course, he does. But I just think it's so sweet.

Morgan does have my long, skinny fingers, though. And she sleeps with her mouth wide open, like me. She had to get something from me, right? Lucky her (especially the mouth-wide-open thing). :-)

She hates baths! Well, we're having to give her the scaled down version of baths right now ('til the umbilical cord thingy falls off), and she HATES it. She's cold...awww. :-( I can't wait until we can give her a bath in her big, pink tub she has. I hope she loves bathing as much as me, or we'll have a problem every night!

She had her first official doctors appointment today. She's gained weight! She now weighs 6 pounds, 4 ounces. Her next appointment is Monday -- is it possible to have a 7 pounder by then? I guess we'll see!

Overall, life is great right now! She's brought so much joy to the Kimble-Mitchell-Simmons clan. Sometimes I miss being pregnant -- I miss those little jabs I'd get every morning around 5:30. I miss those little stretches she'd do in the middle of the day. And I miss seeing that little elbow/knee poking out around my navel.

But I'm soo glad she's here!
