It was almost the second week of Maggie's life when Ryan & I realized we hadn't been taking any video of our little girl! I think we were so overwhelmed those first few weeks that it just didn't cross our minds. So we set out to rectify that. This was the very first video we shot of our daughter. (That's still weird to say.)
We happened to catch a few of Maggie's hiccups. I'm pretty sure she gets them after every time she eats. I used to get them several times a day and still get them often. Unfortunately, she took after me on that trait.
I think babies are so cute when they are sleeping. They always make the sweetest faces. Yes, that is dried milk on Maggie's eyelid (it gets crazy up in here!) and yes, I caught her when she decided to nose dive off of my legs at the end of the video.
Ryan & I decided to start giving Maggie one bottle of breast milk a day so she will get used to bottles when I go back to work in a few weeks. While she drinks from the bottle I will pump during that time to have milk for the next day's feeding. It also gives me a little break and it gives Ryan a little bonding time with her too. This video was one of the first times we gave her a bottle. You can tell we had no clue what we were doing. I absolutely love the noises she makes while drinking. She's a noisy eater.
I love this video for so many reasons. I love "daddy" footed pajamas, the song that's playing, her dancing legs (that girl is strong!) and how she's getting excited over the toy in my hand. This gives me a little preview of what's to come when she gets older and can really start to play. So excited for future play dates with this little lady but also sad how time is freaking flying!
This girl was a week old and I wigged out when she almost rolled from her back to her stomach. She made it half way and then decided she was content looking at herself in the mirror.
Last video (for now) I promise! I just took this last week of Maggie in her "chill" state. I love when she's just hanging out and taking in her surroundings. She was making all kinds of cute faces but as soon as I whipped out my cell phone she just stopped and stared at it. My favorite thing is to lock eyes with her and try to get her to smile. If you look closely you can see a dimple on one of her cheeks when she smiles. I really like this video because it just captures her mannerisms. I might have to start doing this on a weekly bases to see how much she changes week to week because it happens so fast. :)
