An Almost Birthday

Today, Friday, May 7th, was supposed to be Em's birthday. Today we would have met her for the first time, held her and looked at her for the first time, and began the long journey of getting to know each other. She would have been a week early.

Instead, she is 11 days old, joining Jax in the center of our universe. Her eyes aren't as swollen and she looks us in the eye for the short periods when she is awake. She is a professional breastfeeder. She sleeps for decent chunks of time, and we still don't know if she likes to be swaddled or not. She seems to change her mind. She squawks when she sleeps. She has a teeny little birthmark under her hair on the top of her head.

It's only been 11 days, and we already know so much about you, Em.  Every day we learn something new, and we love every second of getting to know you.

Happy Almost Birthday, baby girl!
