the first week of mommyhood

If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably caught some cute baby pictures lately, along with some food highlights and our adventures.

Maggie is settling right into life with near-constant supervision from Milton, our Whippet/Jack Russell mix. He's been protective and loves to check up on her.

She's accompanied us for froyo, been to Ikea and already loves the Red Sox. We survived the first bath and filed her nails.

So far her favorite place seems to be the changing table. Every time we put her on it, she gets very calm (not that she gets too worked up to begin with).

The first week with Maggie went by so fast. Our first trip out of the house as a family of three was to get frozen yogurt. Maggie didn't like being in the Baby Born after about 10 minutes, so we will practice baby wearing at home in small bits to get her warmed up to it.

I spend a lot of time in the nursery, which I love and can't wait to finish decorating. We bought some fun girly accents I can't wait to get put in place. I just need to find the time between feedings ;-)


  1. There is something about the changing table. Both of our kids LOVED it.
