A lot of friends and blog followers are asking me about Naja. While I'm sure some of you don't care, I know others do, so here's a brief update on my little bear and me.
Naja is two weeks old today, and this is a real-time picture! She is a sweet baby who doesn't cry much - she cries when she's hungry, needs to be burped, and when she's getting her diaper changed. I can already tell she's going to be a character. She makes these grown up facial expressions that crack me up - wrinkled forehead and everything! Recently, she has found favor in sticking out her tongue, trying to lift up her head, and sucking on her fist. Yes - note that I wrote FIST - it's like her thumb isn't enough.
For me, I have spent most of my time feeding her, changing her and giving her some mommy chest time, which she LOVES...OK - me too, she lays right on my chest, and goes right to sleep, it's like she's right where she wants to be and I love it! She eats every three hours, but time flies in between! I've been spending my down time visiting with family, cooking, and getting an occasional nap in also. She wakes up twice at night, so this mama bear is a little bit sleep deprived, but that's to be expected. All in all, it's been an experience unlike any other, and she is truly a blessing.
I will probably do monthly updates on Naja moving forward, I hope you don't mind getting a little peak into our lives. *PS - sorry for the crappy pictures, maybe I'll actually pick up a photography how-to book while I'm on maternity leave...maybe.
