Marlow Mae, one week old

Baby Marlow is one week old today! This week passed way too quickly. I could easily take another 100 weeks just exactly like it! The lazy days, the slower pace, the baby snuggles, newborn coos and that sweet newborn smell, a happy, bustling home filled with excited children, the love and tenderness of siblings, the way a new baby makes the whole world stand still and all other outside distractions seem so distant. Gosh, I wish I could freeze it and keep it forever and ever. Not to mention… the wonderful and loving comments on this blog, happy comments on Facebook and Instagram, emails in my inbox, sweet handwritten cards, and the love and support from so, so many. Thank you all so very much for all of your sweet comments. Thank you, Esther, for the heartfelt post you wrote about Marlow’s arrival. I am one lucky mama; I feel so blessed and so loved. Thank you.

p.s. More Marlow updates and photos to come soon! xx
