Happy 1 week birthday Pippa! A week in photos....

So, our darling Pippa is now 1 week old!  I cannot believe it!  I guess this is the first of many mini-milestones to come. Don't fear though,  I shan't be publicly celebrating every single weekly milestone.... just this first one!

I thought the best way to show you all how we have been spending this first week is to share some photos  (and surprise, surprise....we have taken just one or two!).


Her first screaming fit....




Nice and calm after a rub down and a bit of good ol' swaddling...




In the hospital cot next to my bed in the postnatal ward...being watched over by Peter and Jemima....




Being a star pupil in the "show bath" on the postnatal ward....she seemed to love this at the time.....not so much since returning home!!




In her car seat on our way home from hospital....somewhat resembling a marshmallow!!




Our lovely welcome home care of my mother-in-law....


Our first supper at home.....a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and a boxed camembert.  I had been dreaming of this moment for nine months  (obviously to a lesser extent than the main event!),  Philippa enjoyed the moment immensely by proxy a couple of hours later!




Meeting the other baby of the household......




Her first post-feeding, milk-induced smile.....




Her first dress, which arrived in a parcel larger than her own body, on her 1 week birthday.......it may be a couple more weeks until this fits!





Happy (sort-of) Birthday little Pip!
