But what she really seems to love is to sleep on one of us. Just lay down in bed or lean back in a recliner or other soft chair and she snuggles up on my or Evelin's chest like an Anne Geddes baby. It's so sweet and comfortable and I can still feel her warmth on my sternum even though it's been more than an hour since Evelin took her away for a snack and a nap.
I still need to post the birth story and other tales of the first week of fatherhood, but right now I think I need to move laundry to the dryer and get back to making a tomato tart for dinner. (Paternity leave, even if it's involving lots of phone calls and e-mail exchanges, is giving me time to do a little bit of cooking, which is good. Plus K--- and T---, who drove down from Massachusetts for Labor Day Weekend (it turned out to be a bit quite the different visit from what they'd expected), brought us tons of tomatoes that are going to go bad if I don't do something drastic with them ...)
Thanks for all the well wishes everyone!
I just called out to Dave that you posted and we were so excited to read about your first few days and nights!
I *love* the name Celeste! It is perfect for this little girl!
No, they don't like waking up for feeding, eh!? Has she started yelling at you for changing her diaper?! We still get to experience that many times daily.
And the chest snuggles are the absolute BEST!!! Those are my absolute favorite things!!
YAY! YAY! YAY! Again!!
This is really cool, scary, and amazing, but really really cool...
Your memory of her when recalling her warmth still felt on your chest after Evelin took her for feeding and a nap is so sweet...you are a great daddy. =)
Regards to Evelin!
