Yesterday was a great Father's Day for both Sean and I. Last year was his first "official" Father's Day, but without Whitney in our arms, it wasn't exactly a celebratory day. But this year... oh, sweet this year. We were filled with joy to overflowing by having Gianna in our arms on this special Dad's Day. So even though it was techinically his second Father's Day, it was his first Daddy's Day where he actually got to hold his daughter. Of course, he/we missed Whitney a little more than usual yesterday, as we typically do on holidays, but were even more grateful for the blessing that we have in Gia. Whitney in our hearts and Gia in our arms. This picture is of Sean getting his first really good look at his new daughter. I just LOVE the way he's looking at her and she is looking back at him. Love at first sight!
I cannot believe our baby is 6 weeks old already!! I had my 6 week post pardum check-up on Tuesday, and Dr. H also could not believe it had been 6 weeks already! Gia was so chill during this week's photo shoot... he just held still and kinda looked at me funny! She is smiling at us more, though I have yet to really capture it on camera. She's also hit her 6 week growth spurt... complete with one full night of sleeplessness and lots of cluster feeding every hour or less. She's our growing girl!! Also... in other Wilson Family news............ WE HAVE A JOB!!!! More on that later, but we could not be more thrilled. We can definitely say that this new ministry is a great fit and definitely worth the wait these past 8 months. God is GOOD and always has been!
Gia's aunt Megan came to visit us this week! We had a great time just hanging out and staring at the baby. :) Meg picked out this beautiful, vibrant fabric for Gia's POTW! (Photo of the week) She was so expressive this week, it was hard to pick just one picture!!
I cannot believe it has already been 4 weeks with Gia! We are beyond blessed, over the moon in love with our little girl. This week has been pretty difficult because she's been crying a lot, but I think it was just a growth spurt. She's back to her normal happy, sleepy self today. She is starting to make more faces at us... can't wait til she smiles for real!!
