One Week

Our little girl is a week old.
She is springtime, holidays, a first kiss, warm apple crisp, a refreshing deep breath, a great book you never want to end, a perfect pair of shoes, a glimpse of Heaven.
We are all settling in nicely. This big brother is enamored by his new sister, and so far the transition from one to two has been smooth.
He hasn't quite learned, "soft, gentle, or careful" yet, but he is ever attentive and loving.
He said he was being a, "big helper".
Oh...brother!!
Larkin could be described with every generality ever used to describe a little girl: sweet, cute, darling, precious, adorable, tender, pretty, and lovely. I prefer something with a little more Jane-Austen lustrousness to describe this ethereal girl.
"Larkin, the youngest of the Nuzman children, is a delightful character, how will anyone ever be able to tolerate those who do not like her, even in the least? I do not know. She has a lively yet peaceful and serene dispostion like the ease of the wind on a youthful spring day. She is a great pleasure which a pair of fine eyes in the face of pretty woman can bestow. She loves to laugh at follies and absurdities, embracing life with all of its ebb and flow. Larkin's wit and vivacity are her most radiant traits next to her resplendant beauty. She isn't necessarily an elegant female, but she does speak truth from her heart..."
In other words...she is undeniably one of the best things we ever did...

I just came across your blog today (beautiful!) and I wouldn't normally comment except that I'm sitting here pumping into that exact container and those pictures made me laugh out loud. Thanks for the laugh and the beautiful photos, and of course congratulations.

Micha said...

Congratulations!! I'm excited to hear about your adventures. She is absolutely precious, and Gunnar is charming and hilarious as always. Enjoy the journey.

Oh Kam, she is perfection! I can't wait to see her again. We have a similar picture of Braden doing the same thing, except he's double pumping-I mean c'mon Gunnar it's called multi-tasking. We are seriously warped parents with twisted senses of humor. Love ya guys!

Rebecca said...

Kam, what a sweet sentiment. She is a adorable. I love your Jane Austen quote or impression. It was spot on. I just finished PS I Love You, thanks for the recommend so long ago. Love ya Kam. Hope you are getting some sleep here and there and I hope you are feeling better now that you are uninhabited.

Kate said...

Holy cow... Larkin is beautiful, as are your words and photos. My fave is the top picture. And Gunnar pumping is precious. What a great helper.

Just lovely! Simply lovely! I could almost smell the newborn smell looking at the first one. She is heaven. And the shots of milking Gunnar are especially lovely :)

I think I am jealous - weird! I love her already..

Jennifer P. said...

Kamee--
I can't believe I missed THE announcement! What a darling, sweet, splendid baby girl! She is all those things you described and more! And her name---perfect!!!

I am so happy for you! Who knew I could ever feel such elation for a computer friend, and yet I do---like I was right there! (wish I was there! I'd bring dinner!).

Can't wait to see her grow through your lens!
