Happy One Week Birthday Sweet Emery!

Sweet, Sweet Emery,

It's so hard for me to believe that you are already one week old and boy what a week it's been! It was a tough one, but you have already proven that you are going to be quite the trooper just like your big brother is. Not only are you a trooper, you are quite the feisty little thing when push comes to shove and you are not afraid to let us know it!!!

Daddy, Chase, and I are so happy that you are finally here with us. Chase adores you and gets so excited when you are awake and he can see your eyes open. He loves to sing you Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, talk to you, and if you are crying he immediately tries to soothe you to make you feel better. He is going to be a great big brother and you are one very lucky little girl! Daddy is already wrapped around your finger, but let's admit it, everyone is. You are a magnet for smiles!

I still can't believe it's been a whole week since we got to meet you, how does it happen so fast? You are a really good little girl and never very fussy, unless you are hungry and we simply aren't feeding you fast enough. You are still not really into the nursing thing after our hospital stint and as hard as it is for me to accept, I know we'll do what we can with it and you'll be just fine. As long as I have you to hold in my arms, I'm good!

Please don't grow too fast, you're brother already fills that position and I don't want my babies getting quite so big!!!

We love you and happy one week birthday Princess!

Love, Mommy

Oooooooooooooh-kay this picture just pushed me over the top. I am tempted to NOT go to work today so I can come up and hold this little precious baby! You are killing me!!!! Kahla- what a sweet post. Happy one week birthday indeed baby Emery. :)

Looks as though Madison will see you before I do!

Awesome pic and update!
She is adorable (love the blonde hair!!)
Caitlin also sings "Twinkle Twinkle" to Madison to calm her down! Is that the universal song to calm babies down by their big siblings??!! How cute is that?!
Hope you are having a great day!
Hugs and prayers,
