One Week

She’s one week old now (and a couple hours). I can’t tell you how much she’s grown. I mean, not in a metaphorically, but literally: I don’t have the proper scales to give an update on her weight. However, I can say since birth she’s filled out. She’s fitting into her skin a bit better.

She’s already lifting her head. A couple hours after her birth, I’d call her, and she’d actually tilt her head and look my way. I’m sure she doesn’t really know her name, but the point is she was responding. She was zeroing in on my voice. Sometimes I wonder if maybe she’s really some alien being, and sometimes she forgets she’s supposed to be a newborn human. Seriously, have you seen her eyes?
