We're still in a cocoon-like state over here, just loving on her and getting to know each other. It's like slow motion, letting this process unfold and discovering each other a little more each day.
I'm taking it easy and really paying attention to her little cues and messages about what she needs. So far, she's very calm and relaxed.
She's a beautiful, sweet, sweet baby and the minute they placed her on my chest, I fell in love hard. She's so teeny and perfect and my heart feels like it's outside my chest half the time. The same feeling I have with James everyday. Y'all were right about the love not dividing, but multiplying.
It took us a long time to finally decide on a name, and it wasn't official until after she was born. I'm fond of having two 'J' kids' names, now James and Jordan. #ohmygoshIhave2kids! Jordan also lends itself well to nicknames like JoJo (my mom's name is Jo) and has the significance of the Jordan River, where Jesus was baptized, which is so special. It's already occurred to us that we'll have to explain sometimes, "she's a girl Jordan" since when we took her to her first doctor visit, they assumed she was a boy. oops.
Above is the outfit she wore to big brother's birthday party this weekend. It's seriously so fun picking out teeny baby girl clothes. She only fits in newborn sizes now, the 0-3 months are swimming on her. I hope to share some pics of the Star Wars party soon! :)
keep in touch!
