1 Month Old!!

I can't believe it, Neela is more than a month old. Today marks 5 weeks and June 12th Neela hit a month old.. The time went by so fast!

She has been such a blessing in our life. Things are definitely different, but in a good way.

-Everyday when we wake up look at how much she has grown literally overnight.

-We laugh at the funny faces she makes when she is sleeping.

-We are in awe of how God creates life and we get to be in the mist of the process of our baby girl understanding and personally knowing our Life-giver and Sustainer of life.

-I love how she stares so intensely at Tim anytime he is in the room. She loves her Pops!

-We enjoy taking her places with us because she enjoys it so much and is so easy to please.

-We laugh at how she tries to cry but really is just making whining noises. It's so cute!

-I (Jaya) LOVE that at night she only wakes up for feedings and goes straight back to sleep. Also she sleeps longer between feedings at night. She knows what her Mama needs. :)

-It's a joy to give Neela a bath because she enjoys it so much and is so calm.

I am so thankful for her and the joy she brings to our life. It's funny how in a month our life has been so radically changed. I love our family!

Neela's 1st Bath!

Well, Neela has had many baths before this post, but we did capture her first bath and had a great experience! She was a little over a week old. She loved taking a bath and did not cry! I was so impressed. At that point, she hardly cried at all and this just went along with the rest of our experience with her. She has been a sweet baby and fun!

Look at that sweet face after her 1st bath. No tears and No crying! What a great baby!

Neela finds so much comfort in her Daddy. When she was holding his hands, she was calm and content.

As long as she knew her Mommy was near by, she had no worries.

We are so proud of Neela!

Neela is here!!

Sorry I am so late with posting Neela pics! Things have been a little crazy on our end. We have been settled in Austin for almost a week. Neela was 2 1/2 weeks at the time of our move and did great! She slept almost the entire time. She woke up about 15 minutes out from our apt.

Neela has been a great baby and has made our adjustment to being parents a smooth transition. She is really content most of the time and fusses when she is hungry or is in need of some lovin. :)

I will be posting more soon! Neela is now 3 weeks old! I can't believe how quickly the time has gone by! Tim and I are really noticing her getting bigger. It's crazy how each day she is growing and changing.

She had her first dr. appt last Friday and the doctor said she is doing great! She weighed 6lbs 9 oz. when she was born and now weighs 7lbs 12 oz. He said she is a good eater and is healthy. Praise God!

This is her first pic! (and the never stopped after this moment. :)
She weighed 6 lbs. 9 oz. and was 19 1/2 in.

Neela's first outfit of course was a Dallas Cowboys onesie.

Neela's Daddy can not stop giving her kisses. :) I love watching them together.

This is the first time I am holding her. She was so quiet and content. Sweet and lovely from the beginning!
