Four Weeks in Pictures

So this post is a little overdue, but I have a few exciting events coming up that I plan to blog about so I wanted to get these pictures uploaded.  Yesterday Caroline turned 4 weeks old and I can't believe it.  Time really does fly!  Caroline and I are having so much fun hanging out everyday.  I'm still adjusting to being a stay-at-home but learning everyday and becoming more confident.  I have learned to decipher her different types of cries, how she likes to be swaddled, the best positions for breast feeding and figured out the best-fitting diapers for her little bottom!  She is getting bigger everyday I feel like... her cheeks are more plump, her belly is filling out and I can tell she's gaining weight by the way she eats!  So far I love being a mom to Caroline but I think one of the best things about it is watching Jay as a daddy.  I'm so blessed to have Jay as my husband and Caroline is so unbelievably blessed to have him as her dad.  We're in love to say the LEAST.  So that's a quick update on the Thorpe family and here are more pictures of her last few weeks (including more pics from the hospital) for you to enjoy...
