week 9 - 52 collages 2014 - thekarpiuksThe first full week home with Lila has gone pretty well! We’re all still adjusting, but we’re getting a bit of a routine down, which is nice. Lila had her one week check-up, and is already 2oz over her birth weight so clearly all that eating has paid off. Liam sure loves his new little sister. He likes to help her at tummy time and kisses her any chance he gets. He’s begun referring to her as “my baby,” and this week he taught her about zambonis. He’s a really proud big brother.

This weekend Lila got to meet her great grandmas for the first time. She’s been napping in the family heirloom cradle, which is very special, and she received a beautiful handmade quilt from her Great Aunt Cindy. On Sunday we all had a special surprise breakfast together out in the living room… donuts! Then we had Lila’s newborn photos taken with Kristi Powell Photography, and I can’t wait to see how they turned out, especially the one(s) of Liam and Lila together.
