Nora's 3rd day

Today is the third day in Nora's life. The last 72 hours have been an amazing time. Thank you all for the sweet emails and comments. We will reply to them all when things "slow down".

Sasha is doing well and today we are even expecting our first visitors -- the Zane family will stop by.

Nora is amazing. Incredible to see such a sweet babygirl and to realize it's ours. And our responsibility.

I am having my first cup of coffee of the day -- it is noon, so I am in pretty desperate need -- and Nora is sleeping next to me in her bassinet. She likes sleeping, clearly. She moves in her sleep sometimes if there is an unexpected sound, like a door closing in the hallway. As new parents we are closely monitoring how much she eats and processes. So far, so good.

I've learned how to swaddle her, and how to say "to swaddle" in Dutch: bakeren. Nora seems to like it, nicely in a bundle. This morning I changed her diaper for the first time. I'm also learning how to type with one hand while safely holding Nora in the other.

Things she likes/dislikes:

- Obviously, her favorite place is being with mom. Bliss.
- In her bassinet, she likes the swaddle. It calms her down.
- She enjoy snuggling on my chest. Especially after feeding.
- She doesn't like it when I put on her hat. Once it's on she's fine but the placing always annoys her a bit.


Staat je goed hoor!
