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...

  1. Thanks for sharing, Katherine! Such sweet pictures. It's great to hear how the first few weeks have gone, especially as we prepare to follow in your footsteps a few months from now. Oh, and Jim and I have really been enjoying the cassette series on parenting that you and Jay loaned us. Very helpful information!
