Burrito Baby Blue Eyes

This is the image I see when I get up at 3:30 in the morning to feed Violet. She is wrapped up tight in her "SwaddleMe" and it is the funniest, cutest thing ever. When she is awake, these are the gorgeous blue eyes I see. Look at those baby blues! I swear, she is all Bret.

Meet Violet Newton

I've intended to post the exciting news of the birth of our baby girl, Violet, since the day she entered into this world. However, as I've learned and most of you already know, a baby is WAY time-consuming and I'm just getting to this now!

Violet was born on January 20th at 12:10 am. She weighed 6 pounds and 3 ounces and was 19 inches long. She has a sweet personality and is a very good baby. Sometimes she will go a whole day or two before I hear her really cry. Her daddy is completely smitten with her and she has him wrapped around her each of her tiny fingers, and toes too. We think she looks a lot like him, but occasionally see some of me in her too.

So far the most rewarding experience was last night when Bret woke me asking for help putting the baby to sleep after his turn feeding her. As soon as he placed her in my arms, she closed her eyes and fell asleep. It was like she just needed her mommy and when she recognized my voice and face she was immediately comforted.

We are currently hibernating at home to avoid catching anything this winter, but we are excited to have her meet all of our friends soon.
