Home with Little Boo

We’re home with our precious little girl! I am so exhausted and slightly delirious. I have 1 hour and 9 minutes before her next feed (if I’m lucky) so I had better go and have a nap, but in the mean time, here’s a little pic of Amelia at one day old. I am especially crazy about her disco hair (which you can’t see in this photo, more photos to follow soon). Thank you for all the lovely comments and warm wishes. My dad printed them out and brought them into the hospital for me and I will be sure to add them to Amelia’s time capsule.

    Is she named after Amelie, the movie? It would seem so fitting if she was; she’s already brought so much joy to the people around her.

    Claire, I only discovered your site a couple of months ago but I must confess to being absolutely swept away by how fantastic it is! I’ve loved reading about your pregnancy and it’s wonderful to see the end result! She’s absolutely gorgeous. Wishing you, Big P and Amelia much happiness.

    Oh, what a cutie! Congratulations! They say “nap when the baby is napping,” but it never seems to happen. Do try!

  13. Dianne@rigdonia.com

    Just precious! Glad to read you are doing well. As a mom to a 4 month old, I can still clearly remember the first few weeks. How special are these days?! (And those to come! πŸ˜€ )

  14. matt@unbendable.org

    What a sweetie. And what did I tell you about c-section babies? Adorably cute round heads.
    Wonderful news that all is well, and good luck with the sleep schedule…

    what an adorable girl…sugar and spice and all things nice. πŸ™‚
    can I recommend a great book to have by your bedside? Baby Love by Robin Barker – this Aussie knows her stuff and I found it an invaluable, down-to-earth guide to everything about the first tumultuous year of parenthood.

    love your site, thanks for sharing your journey.

  23. aplatham@earthlink.net

    Beautiful baby! Congratulations! Hope everything is going well and you are managing to get a LITTLE rest, at least. BTW, the url isn’t mine, just a great childrens’ book site I wandered into today with my almost-4-or-possibly-very-short-26-year-old today.

  24. panpan2spcs@yahoo.com

    i’m sure there’s enough people out there saying how cute she is – and this little girl really is! I can imagine her becoming a future beauty….awww…those cute red cheeks!
    congrats again!

  25. queenmagda@lycos.com

    You’re lucky I have no idea where you live or else I might have to become a kidnapper just so I could have her. She’s gorgeous. I love her name, also. πŸ™‚

  26. tiffanyw@oba.com

    She’s just sweet as they come! Congratulations to you both and thank you for sharing!

  27. melaniewilson@sympatico.ca

    O my, Looby-lu! what an utterly adorable wee spot of joy! Her features are so fine and delicate! O perfect being! Does she have that wonderful milky baby smell? I can’t wait for all the details. I hope wee A.J. is a good napper, giving mommy lots of time to thrill her loobylu audience with all the tender thrills and details! hugs and kisses all around !

  28. lesliejfox@earthlink.net

    Claire & Big P what a cutie pie! I hope everything is going well. Kisses and cheers to Amelia πŸ™‚

  29. kellyroz@cox.net

    Oh my, what a beautiful baby! I wish you all peaceful sleep and sweet dreams, and more baby laughs than baby tears.Congratulations!

  30. sylvia_bm@yahoo.com

    Hope you continue to breastfeed successfully! Don’t forget to exploit your “new mom privilege” of napping with the baby.

  31. tigsta22@hotmail.com

    she is so beautiful! i know you guys are proud and happy with your new addition! πŸ™‚ congratulations. she is absolutely adorable! πŸ™‚

  32. celina@kindofblue.com

    i may be mistaken, but i do believe that could be your nose, clair πŸ˜‰
    although it’s hard to really judge considering i don’t believe i’ve ever seen a photo of Big P. in the years (since diaryland!) that i’ve been reading you.

    does this mean you may treat us to some family pics so we can oggle, ooh, and ahh and compare? *hopehope*

    congratulations and thank you so much for letting us into this new facet to your life – i was so worried it would turn into the MTV’s Brandy Baby Diary series where we watched every week up until the birth and we never got to see the baby’s face!

    Hope to hear all about the exciting birth and homecoming!

  33. cristobalina20@yahoo.com

    Your daughter is so beautiful! Congratulations, and it’s true what they say, enjoy her as much as you can and spend as much time as you can with her because they grow up so fast, that if you blink you’ll miss something.Congratulations again.

  34. momo@momofreaksout.com

    claire, i’m sure you’re positively too exhausted to read well-wish number 96, but Amelia Joan is positively adorable!
    My prediction for 2020: with that angelic face, and the disco hair you mention and we can only get a peek of, Amelia will grow up to be a supermodel/rockstar and you’ll be drawing and designing record covers in 18 years time!

  35. bendykitten@hotmail.com

    a beautiful little librian girl … congrats mummy!!

  36. okaggi@cs.com

    She’s beautiful with lotsa’ hair!!! Congratulations!

  37. sammy@katgyrl.com

    Awww – I knew I should have checked in earlier…! She’s so sweet and pretty looking. Thanks for posting a pic so we can see little Boo!
