Brooke is such a sweet name great choice…

THAT HAIR, THOSE LIPS! She is perfection. I hope you’re doing well and enjoying every minute of that tiny girl! Also, my middle name is Brooke so I completely approve of her darling name (like you need a complete stranger’s approval!). Good luck in the days/weeks to come.

My advice is to let her sleep on you as much as possible. It will pass more quickly than you know!

Congrats :D She’s certainly got one of the thickest heads of hair I’ve ever seen on a newborn. She’s a Pantene model in the making already :)

And she weighs *exactly* the same as I did at birth. For some reason that makes me ridiculously happy!
