2 weeks old, springtime baby

Filed under: The sweet baby — perrymoffitt @ 12:58 pm

Our sweet baby girl is 2 weeks old today. I spent most of the first week either in the hospital bed or my bed popping the pain pills and nursing the baby whenever she was brought to me. The second week I really got to meet our baby girl. And what a fantastic lady she is; smiley, charming and sweet.

We have been lucky enough to have one of the grandma’s here for the last 2 weeks and it has made a huge difference. Hubby has been going to work, I have been mothering the little one and the household has been running seamlessly. There will be a changing of the guard later this week when another set of grandparents arrive to take over. The day I have to make my own meals again is on the horizon. I am not looking forward to it.

Here she is, in one of my all time favorite creations. Oh, how I wish I had ordered more of this fabric before it disappeared. At least I hung on to this one! (Don’t worry Liz, I have one for your soon-to-be baby girl too!)

A million years ago when we talked about starting a family, I thought it would be nice to have a spring baby. My birthday is late summer which flows nicely into the holiday season which includes my hubby’s birthday and our wedding anniversary and then, by February we are totally done with holidays and events and it is a long haul until August again when we can find an excuse to go out to a nice dinner.  I wanted baby to have a birthday that didn’t get buried with all the other holidays. Not to say everything went exactly to plan, our sweet baby came a few years later than we thought. But, the added bonus has been getting to be home to see spring arrive.  What a joy it is to open the doors and windows and watch the tulips and apple trees bloom with baby in my arms.


  1. She is beautiful! And so is her onsie! I’m glad to hear that the transition is going well and you are so lucky to have help around the house. ❤

  2. It sounds like things are going great, Cybele! And I’m SO THRILLED that you thought of me and Baby Girl Thomas when you saw that Frida fabric. You are a dear.
