2 weeks 5 days - Love like this...

Oh, I love her so much. 

Geneva is nearly 3 weeks old.  I still haven't finished writing her birth story.  I don't have a lot of time where she's not in my arms, and when I do, I find myself spending it showering, cleaning the kitchen, doing laundry, eating, and sleeping.  There's so precious little time for those things - I haven't picked up the computer for more than 10 minutes in at least 2 weeks. My entire life has changed, my priorities have shifted, my world is a new place full of uncharted territory.  Anything for her.  I miss her when she's sleeping, and find myself wanting to snuggle up with her the way a child cuddles with a favorite stuffed animal.  She's so small and soft and warm.  I wonder how I've lived my whole life without knowing her?  And she's a stranger I'm getting to know, but at the same time, I feel like I know her intimately, like we're part of the same soul...does that sound crazy?  Probably.  I'm tired.  I love this little baby. 

She hiccups all the time - most especially after a meal.  She makes the most adorable little noises.  We're calling her Hiku - our little HikuHiku baby. 

Sometimes it just washes over me - I have a daughter.  A child.  A baby girl named Geneva.  I wondered for so long if this day would ever arrive.  Here I am, here we are.  Happiness defined. 

She's snoring a little.  I wonder if it is something I should worry about, or do all babies snore?  She's so pretty and sweet and wonderful.  I love her so much.


  1. shes beautiful! My 2nd snored a little. I took a cell video and showed the PED and he didn't seem alarmed.

  2. Congratulations! It's been so long since I've been through my blog list and I find this at the top of your blog. How absolutely wonderful and amazing and she is so beautiful.

  3. So awesome to read. And don't worry about snoring, it just makes them more adorable :)

  4. She's so beautiful, just like her mommy. Congrats Notie. Much love.


Please don't make me cry.
