One week old already!
Well we have been parents for a whole week now. WHEW! Im tired :) All I can say is I miss sleep, ab muscles, and ironically - my old boobs !!! Postpartum body is even worse than pregnant body! Thankfully, Brigitte is the perfect consolation prize. She has the best 'drunken smiles' after she is done eating. And she loves it when you talk to her, she just stares and stares. Gabe and I basically spent the past 7 days telling each other how cute and perfect she is - even though we have heard some pretty ridiculous comments about her name and the shape of her head.
For the record - we KNOW she has a cone head - trust me, I pushed it out of my body! It will eventually be normal shaped. And no, we will not be calling her BJ, or the french brijeet. Just Bridget. Only spelled this way : Brigitte.
I have some great video footage of her smiles, but we are still trying to figure out how to cut it into a shorter clip and upload it. These pictures will have to do for now!
