The First 12 Days of Blueberry

On the first day of Blueberry my true love said to me: "She's beautiful. And I'm going to teach her to play Halo with me*."

*For those of you who are now scandalized that Blueberry's Daddy would be so quickly corrupting our innocent child, allow me to share an insite into my husband. When he enjoys something, he wants to share it. And in particular, when he likes/loves somebody, he wants to share his passions with them. So for him, being excited about sharing a game that he enjoys so greatly with his daughter is simply him wanting to bond and spend time with her. Because spending time with someone is one of his love languages.

On the second day of Blueberry the grandparents and great-grandparents and the aunts and the uncles came and met the little bundle: "Awwwww...."

On the third day of Blueberry the puppies questioned me: "What is that?! Can we lick it? Why is it here?"

On the fourth day of Blueberry, she queried me: "Why am I in a box?" and then promptly put her best foot forward for a berry photo-op.

On the fifth day of Blueberry, my true love said to me: "I couldn't wait to get off work to see my girls!"

On the sixth day of Blueberry, Nana put out the Blueberry laundry:

On the seventh day of Blueberry she had a nice ol' bath with Nana taking pictures of it all.

On the eighth day of Blueberry her doctor said to me: "She's put on 11oz in 5 days; she's doing great!"

On the ninth day of Blueberry my good friend said to me: "Here try this. It helps in the baby cuddling!"

On the tenth day of Blueberry, she put her feet up to just relax and be...

On the eleventh day of Blueberry, Daddy sacked out with Blueberry on the couch and the puppies decided it was a good idea as well.

On the twelfth day of Blueberry, she met her Papa!

Love it, Ouphgirl! Thanks for sharing! Call me sometime when you're not napping so you can tell me all about the birth and your delish little Blueberry.

Simply lovely and oh so precious! Love the pic with your dad. Just one little helful hint. . . In the picture of you with Charlotte in the sling, you have the sling on slightly wrong. The section where the rings attach is meant to cup your shoulder, not be up around your neck. It can impair arm movement a bit, but when you let it go near your neck, you will hate wearing it! The rings should be up high, almost at your shoulder and the section of fabric before the stitching should cup your shoulder itself. Hope that helps! And it looks great, by the way!
