This week was a week full of firsts.
01. Her first outing: On Thursday we took Gretchen out of the apartment for the first time. It was also my first time outside since the day before she was born. We ran some errands downtown & visited a few friends at work. She mostly just slept, all cozy in her car seat. Definitely a success.
02. Her first stories: This week we read Olivia & Grumpy Bird. She always looks very fascinated while we read to her -- she especially loves her dad's voice.
03. Her first bath: Last night we had a very quick little dip in the tub. She was very alert & excited -- she didn't cry one bit. Before the tub we had some naked time just wrapped in a blanket, when she proceeded to pee all over her father. After tub time while wrapped up in a cozy blue towel, she decided to let loose and pee all over her mother. Needless to say, it was adorable.
04. Her first smiles: Our new favourite game is trying to make the baby smile (& I promise you it's not just gas). She's adorable.
I love that every moment with Gretchen is a new experience. It's fabulous to look at the world the way that she does -- taking it all in, step by step. I am constantly amazed & completely in love.
