Lil W is a dream baby so far. She's easy to calm when she's fussy, nurses like a champion (after some growing pains the first few days), and has gained back 6 of the 14 ounces that she lost between being born and her first pediatrician appointment. She has long legs and a strong neck and is already working on correct form for when she starts doing push-ups. She and Zoe get along (see video proof below) and she's definitely part of Zoe's pack. All in all, things are very good in our little household at the moment.
And now a selection of baby photos from the first week. There are a million more but I'll try not to inundate with too many.

|Greeting the day, her first day.|
|Already learning how to give skeptical side-eye|
|Napping anywhere and any time she can, like her mother taught her.|
|Meeting her Aunt Emily.|
|I'm human again! Showered and wearing contacts = somewhat back to normal.|
|Heading home from the hospital. It snowed 14 inches between when she was born and when we returned home. Bundling up was necessary|
|Hanging with Grandma|
|World's best yawner|

And as promised, Zoe and Lil W shortly after they met. For the record, both James and I had close hands on Zoe during her first few interactions with Lil W, just in case she got nervous or scared or reacted too strongly to the baby. But from their first moments, they've been a dream together. Zoe is careful around the baby, but takes every opportunity to rest her head near Lil W and/or try to lick her feet. I think they'll be best friends in no time, once Lil W realizes what dogs are.
