Mini Bookworm

baby

10 days ago, our baby girl finally arrived. It was a long birth (26 hours), I lost too much blood and had to be hospitalized for a brief period afterwards, but she’s been in perfect health from the very beginning. She’s quite the little philosopher who likes to stay awake at night and stare into space while making weird little noises – which keep her mommy up at night. We’re still in the process of getting to know her and figuring out how to be parents to a little baby. It’s very hard, but I think (/hope) we’re getting better at it day by day.

Her name is Edith Olenska. Edith after one of my favorite authors, Edith Wharton, and Olenska after the character Countess Ellen Olenska from Wharton’s most famous novel The Age of Innocence. So far she doesn’t seem too impressed by the story behind her name:

  1. Oooh..what a baby doll she is, so cute and beautyful. Again congratulations, you are goint to be great parents of course, lucky girl 😉 Love the names.

  2. Congratulations!!! What a little poppet she is, she’s utterly gorgeous. I hope you’ve recovered from such a long labour and enjoy these early moments with her. Wishing you lots of joy, and SLEEP! x

  3. Ej hvor er hun bare kær!

    Stort tillykke til hele den lille familie, og må I lære hinanden at kende hurtigt så I kan falde til i hinandens rytmer.
    Men husk at nyde den første tid, jeg har hørt den forsvinder hurtigt. 🙂

    • Tak, Michelle! So far har den første tid bestået af at være totalt forvirret og overvældet over det nye lille liv 😀

  4. Nåhhh – hvor er hun kær ☺ Tillykke med den lille mini bogorm. I skal nok blive gode forældre for hende – men al begyndelse er svær. Håber du er kommet ovenpå igen – du må være ekstra træt ovenpå sådan en fødsel. De bedste ønsker til jer alle ☺

    • Mange tak Lene! Og ja, minder mig selv konstant om, at al begyndelse er svær … godt, at man har en sundhedsplejerske, der kommer forbi i ny og næ og fortæller en, at man gør det rigtige i det store billede – kan godt være svært at huske når man står med en utrøstelig baby 😉
