Today I did battle. With an 11 day old sweetheart named Emma. I wanted her to sleep....and she wanted to nurse. And nurse...and nurse. After four hours (with a 30 minute break to get some "awake" pictures), I lost the battle. :D
Now, let me tell you a bit about Miss Bright-Eyed-Bushy-Tailed. I think she's advanced for her age. Probably a genius. ;) She's incredibly strong for 11 days - already holding her head high and looking all around to see what's happening. I also think that she's hit her two week growth spurt a few days early, thus the attachment to mommy's breast, need to nurse for four hours straight, difficulty getting her to sleep today. :D :D
Luckily, I managed to snap a few which I hope will be treasured by this family and help them to remember this fleeting newborn stage. Enjoy!
