Caroline is 2 weeks old today! I hope to take and post a picture before day is through. We have sort of slowed down on the picture taking.
Aunt Katherine and I are taking Caroline out on the town, in daylight (such as it is on this grey December day). First I have a doctor's appointment to follow-up on the excitement of last Friday. And then she has her first appointment with her pediatrician. I took a recommendation from my childbirth educator's mom group... first call I made worked out... hoping it is a good fit.
We debated about how to dress Caroline for her big day out on the town... but I decided to put her back in an adorable pink outfit she wore for several hours yesterday. It is just. too. cute. And it is picture day afterall.
This outfit was a shower gift when we yet did not know that we would be blessed with a daughter. At the time I thought, "Um..." Kevin swears he would have put a boy in this outfit... but... as much as I want to not succumb to the "pink is for girls" phenomenon and as much as I don't want to melt when I see that my girl is pretty in pink... I have and I do. And, at the moment, it is the only pink outfit we own. So... from time to time I'll indulge.
It is just Caroline and me at home at the moment. Katherine is staying at the home of one of my classmate's now. And Kevin is off to work. In bits and pieces as these two weeks have unfolded we've had more frequent and longer just the two of us moments. And I like them.
But I also like having wonderful people who love her to pass her off to.
We are blessed.
