Our Gretchen is two weeks old today. It's incredible for me to think that just fourteen days ago at this time I was going through the most intense, overwhelming & satisfying experience of my life. Ryan & I have a hard time believing that time existed before her.
I knew that I would love her, but this is beyond that. I could stare at her for hours. I listen to her breathing while she sleeps, her cheeks are so kissable & soft, her face is so expressive & we absolutely melt when she smiles. This morning before Ryan left for work she gave him such a huge grin that he almost quit his job so he could stay home with her.

She makes us so happy.
She's the best thing that's ever happened to us.
Lastly, a lot of you have been asking about the birth story and I promise to deliver it soon! Our little one, however, likes to feed almost hourly & my one handed typing is bound to bring on a serious case of carpal tunnel. All in good time, friends.
Have a beautiful Thursday afternoon -- I hope the sun is out where you are, since it's certainly not making an appearance here on this rainy, rainy day.
