Dearest Olivia,

As MaMa understands you better I am able to get myself into more of a routine too… Though its still too unpredictable. But I guess we’re getting used to each other now.

The baby books tell me that a baby your age should not stay awake for more than 2 hours at a time… and that you should feed every 3 hours. This week – you have shown me this is not so. You can sleep up till 5 hours in a night and you can definitely stay awake for more than 2 hours. While you stay awake for 4 hours (or more sometimes) – all you want to do is eat and fidget and eat some more. Your appetite can be insatiable!

I still can’t get over how cute you are, and I never tire of the many different expressions that you have. I am yet to capture my favourite expression where you pucker your lips and raise both your eyebrows – but I will get it eventually.

Baby Olivia – you are 2 weeks old, and you have already stolen the hearts of many!

Your PaPa is incredibly protective of you – and you are the first thing on his mind as soon as he wakes.

I know your Aunty Karen will do whatever she can to keep you safe. She’s been driving back and forth almost everyday just to see you no matter how tired she is. I am sure you have turned her world upside down too! She tells me she loves you as much as she loves me (and she has spent more years loving me that’s for sure).

You sure have a strong pair of lungs when you want to be fed….. but MaMa thinks you don’t cry that much (for now, anyways…).

And you can also be so peaceful;

Everyone loves to watch you sleep;
