Week One

During baby Opal's first week at home, she did a great job at being a newborn. She would only sleep in our arms (that lovely bassinet from her great-grandmother hopefully will get use at some point...), screamed, kicked, cried, and we loved her anyway. At her first doctor's appointment, she had lost a bit too much weight so we wound up having to give her formula and pumped milk as supplements, which wasn't in the plan, but anything for baby! We made a visit to a lactation consultant in Tribeca on Saturday night--very hip. On March 8th, Opal got a special visit from her Grandma Jill and Uncle Greg on his birthday. He was thrilled to have a niece as a gift. Opal also got a visit from her aunties Lindsay and Katherine and more love from her family.
