Sweet Phoebe… you were born only 5 days ago, and it’s already been the most exhilarating, exhausting, joy and love-filled week of my life. From your wispy dark hair to the tips of your tiny delicate toes, you are perfect. I can watch you sleep for hours, but when you open up those big blue eyes to meet mine – well, that’s when my heart feels like it’s going to burst from too much love. I fall more in love with your dad every time I see him hold you close, and even though we’re both completely sleep-deprived (you’re 100% nocturnal), a part of me wants these first couple of weeks with just the 3 of us hiding away at home to never end. I’m already terrified of how fast you’re going to grow, and I don’t want to miss a second. Every day is an adventure as you reveal some new facet of your little personality, and your dad and I know we’re the luckiest people in the world just to have you in our lives.
Now, about that “sleeping-at-night” thing…….
