One Week with Gabrielle Rae

Gabrielle is a week old today and we have had an amazing time getting to know each other. She sleeps a lot... and does that other thing that they say babies do a lot of. Jasheen and I both still look at each other and say, 'I can't believe we actually have a baby!' I am going to try and avoid the mushy parent plugs of, 'Isn't she so beautiful,' and 'Is this not the best looking baby you've ever seen,' but as you can see, she is quite gorgeous! She's doing very well. In Britain, the National Health Society provides daily mid-wife visits for the first week, and then they will come as often as you'd like for the first year. This has been and amazing blessing as they have helped us with a lot of the practical baby-care stuff. All of their reports have been great. She's feeding, sleeping, crying, and growing as she should be. Please feel free to post comments if you like. We love reading them! By for now!

Oh!!!!! She's so cute! I'm so happy for you guys. I can't beleive she's your living breathing baby! It seems so weird. But I'm sure you guys are going to make amazing parents. I love you so much! She looks a lot like both of you. She has Chris's mouth and jasheen's nose. She looks like a little doll. I'm so excited if you couldn't tell by my exclamation points! I can't wait to see her as she grows older. You are going to have to tell me what to expect for when Willis and I have a baby. (in a while) But I am so happy. When I saw her picture I was absolutely giddy! I hope to see more pictures soon!
