Our adorable baby girl is already a week old! She has been doing well despite having a case of Jaundice that we have been trying to take care of. She is also gaining back her birth weight, and is spending a little more time awake than she did initially. We just look at her and our hearts melt!

A few things about Daphne:
~She loves to move her arms and legs. No matter how tight we swaddle her, she still manages to get her arms out somehow.
~She is an excited eater, yet nursing makes her fall asleep. We have tried everything trying to keep our little sleeper awake to eat.
~She loves when daddy burps her; mommy doesn't seem to have the right touch yet.
~Stroking her eyebrows makes her go to sleep.
~She loves to put her hands up by her face no matter if she is asleep or awake.
~She loves to crinkle up her forehead and arch her eyebrows.
~She makes a grunting sound sometimes when she is sleeping and eating.
~Daphne is the cutest baby in the world!

She IS the cutest baby in the world. Great job recording all her newborn habits, Karen. She'll change so fast that you'll forget some things if you don't record them. ENJOY!
