I took these when our little Jovi was about two weeks old. I had plans for a newborn shoot but my little dear had some plans of her own and stayed wide awake the entire afternoon. These are about the only ones that turned out and I just haven't had the time or energy to do another one.
I can't believe she's almost one month old. Time has flown by! Things are starting to settle down and Jovi's on a great schedule and some nights even going 5 hours (which makes the biggest difference). I can't wait for the day when she'll sleep through the night. I'm definitely starting to feel the effects of the sleep deprivation, especially since I rarely get a nap during the day... welcome to the wonderful life of having more then one child!
Jovi is a very pleasant baby. She's been smiling since day one and on a good day she'll just look around and smile at everything. I love it! She's been a little fussy off and on lately and we think it's due to a sensitivity to dairy. She's super gassy and pulls her legs up in pain quite a bit. Nolan had a lot of that but way more severe. It's killing me going with out my cheese and greek yogurt but it's definitely worth it to have a happy baby.
She's a great sleeper but has to be put to sleep by bouncing up and down on an exercise ball. Seriously, nothing else will put her to sleep and I still can't bring myself to let her cry herself to sleep. It kills my back but I get a little workout every time.
Nolan's been so great with her. He call's her "Pretty Girl". He points to every part of her body and says "Look at her little nose...look at her little toes...."on and on and on. He doesn't have a whole lot to do with her yet but will want to hold her a few times a day and when he does he's super gentle and soft. He's adjusted really well, something I was quite nervous about.
I still can't believe we have two kids. It's hard work but so amazing!
Birthing pictures and delivery story to come. Just waiting on some pictures.
