Caroline Bennett Hawkins

Our sweet girl has arrived! She is actually 17 days old today, but it has taken this Momma that long to get photos off the camera and onto the computer. There is just something about curling up on the sofa with a new baby that is so tempting. I am LOVING these sweet days with my girl :) 

Baby Caroline, this is what we know about you so far - you love sleeping like a frog on Mommy or Daddy or a Grandma's chest. You also love your Boppy Lounger pillow. Greatest pillow ever. Caroline, you also sleep like a champ at night when you are swaddled. The Adin & Anais Swaddle blankets are a life saver. Your Daddy tells you almost everytime he sees you how beautiful you are (and you really are so pretty!). Bella loves to smell you, but hasn't licked you yet. She has been such a gentle dog sister. She is a little confused as to why you need to eat in the middle of the night though. You don't mind riding in the car or your car-seat so far and walks around the block in your stroller have put you right to sleep. We can't wait to get to know you more and more!

Here are a few of our favorite photos from Baby Caroline's first 2 weeks: 
Caroline - Mommy & Daddy LOVE your hair! Well, in reality we love everything about you! 
 Our first Family of 3 photo! Such an amazing feeling to have a growing family :)
 Love those feet snuggled up against momma - and by the way check out how long her little toes are... Caroline, you have uncle benny feet!
 Getting dressed to head home from the hospital
 Wearing the same dress mama wore home from the hospital. So sweet :) 

 Meeting Big Sister Bella! 

 One exhausted daddy! I found him passed out on the nursery floor while attempting to put away Caroline's things when we got home from the hospital. This is what 2 nights of sleeping on the awful hospital pull-out sofa does to a new dad! Y'all my husband is seriously the best. The whole labor and delivery and recovery process has made me fall more in love with Jay. He has taken care of his girls in an unbelievable way. I am blessed... we are blessed by this amazing man! 

 Our little cow in training
 Mama's girls!

 Caroline's first sink bath! 

 We love our sling from Shannon! Mom can get a few things done, and Caroline, you always take a good nap!

Caroline's birth story and pictures of visits from family and friends coming soon! Now for more napping with my favorite girl :)
