We stayed with the new family for a week, taking over cooking, dishes, and washing the never-ending round of nursing and bottle paraphernalia. While the baby is being breastfed, they have to supplement some with formula and additional breast milk to try to get BD up to at least five pounds. I was truly able to use the title "Chief Cook and Bottle Washer"!
While we were there we also did a newborn photo shoot, with BD laying on the crocheted quilt that was made for my son by his great-grandmother. We also took pictures of the three of them. I must have taken over 200 photos of this sweet baby girl. If we lived in the same town, she would be the most photographed baby ever - haha!
We are looking forward to seeing them again in a few weeks. It will be so special to spend BD's first Christmas with her.
