Addy's Blog Debut!

So, it only took me about 2 months to finally introduce Addy on the blog...but hey...I've been a little occupied with a newborn :) Forgive me?

Anyways, I figured it was about time that Addy made her blog debut!
So blog world, meet:

Adalynn Iris White
Born Sept. 27, 2012 at 4:24am
weighing in at 7lbs,15oz. ; 20 inches long

Sometimes it's still so surreal that we're officially a family of three. But we are LOVING it. I feel like I spend my days constantly staring at her sweet face and smothering her with hundreds of kisses. I adore motherhood so far, and feel so blessed to have been entrusted with this precious little life. 

As for how we are doing so far? Still adjusting, but doing fine!

Sleep? She hasn't been doing very much of it at night - but that was to be expected. The longest she's ever slept has been in her car seat, and car rides have proven to be the ultimate sleep machine. 
She likes to be held ALL the time...like literally, I hold/carry her about 90% of the day because the second I set her down she freaks. So needless to say, my sling and wrap have been my best friends. 
She's been a champ with breastfeeding 
She makes the sweetest little smiles in her sleep
And she's finally starting to slightly outgrow her newborn clothes...which means she's almost officially an "infant"...which means she's growing...which, to mommy, means she's growing too fast...which means time needs to slow down. 

Since baby girl is actually napping right now (hallelujah!), I should actually be packing for our trip to Charleston since we leave...oh, in a few hours. But I just couldn't stand leaving ya'll hanging any longer!  So for now, I'll leave you with some pictures to recap some sweet moments these past 7 weeks.  

Miss Adalynn just a few minutes after being born. Those EYES :)

Addy's first photo shoot. We're learning that she loves the camera. And loves to be a diva in front of it too.

Daddy's way of "multitasking". hmph.

Her first Halloween - she was our little Sushi! Some felt, an iron and $6 later, we had our first handmade halloween costume! :) 

Happy Thanksgiving, Ya'll! Can't wait for Addy to experience her very first Turkey Day!
