Emily Ann Gemma of The Sweetest Thing waiting on baby Sophia's arrival

The first^ photo was from Tuesday – my last bump photo! 

Today makes Sophia’s FIRST WEEK with us!!? It has been the dreamiest with her here – she’s so precious – we are smitten over her! She’s been much like Luke really – we can’t complain about anything at all. In fact, I have to say, she is eating better than Luke did! That is a major gift haha!

I was going through the photos on my camera roll and thought I’d share a few that I really love from my phone and also link sources to everything that many of you have asked about! I just want to say THANK YOU ?❤️?for all of the sweet comments you have left me on FB and IG – I have not been able to reply to all of them but we see them and we are SO grateful for all of the love! You all are seriously so amazing. I’ve almost not really been posting as much on my blog and I’m grateful for those of you who understand. It can be challenging as an entrepreneur – I don’t get any time off really. However, I’m learning to balance it all – work, toddler, newborn, new house, etc. I’ve been posting on my IG stories so make sure you follow there! [I am not answering DMs like I used to for the time being!] It’s been crazy but SO fun and we are fortunate to have my family nearby to help us. Over the weekend my brother in law, Chad, & my neice, Georgia Kelley came and stayed because GK had a soccer game. It was super nice having 2 extra sets of hands – Luke especially loved the soccer!

^First skin to skin

Her hair was even thicker and darker than Lukes! My hair was similar to this as an infant – a little thicker but almost the same! Luke’s was dark and thick as well but he lost his and it came back blonde. It will be interesting to see if she does the same!

^Luke meets Sophia?

It’s safe to say Luke loves her! He kept calling her ‘My Bebe’!

Lots of questions about Coco’s [my mom] outfit… which she pulled from my closet as many of you noticed? Her top is HERE – I got it about 2.5 years ago though while pregnant with Luke! The shoes are a couple of years old as well but THIS pair and THIS pair are similar!

Luke & Sophia and Luke’s new pup – a gift from Sophia! 🙂 We brought him a gift from Sophia and let him open it when he met her and this stuffed pup and a big brother trucker hat were inside. *My sister did this with my nephew & niece and he ended up being crazy over the little pup and named it ‘Shaggy’ and took it everywhere! Harry [nephew] also wore scrubs to meet Georgia Kelley the first time! In fact – my mom and I had Harry and took him to the hospital to meet her and he was not crazy over her ???! I was thinking Luke may be the same but it went well!

Her bow is HERE – and we have it in lots of colors – they are the best! [Esp if you like big bows!]

Her swaddle is the brand Posh Peanut but I LOVE this peony one as well – its a bit more bold!

^I get asked about my grey & white blanket ALL of the time – it is the BEST. I should get back ups bc SOME boys I know try to take it from me! I took it to the hospital because I do not like sleeping w/o it or my Silk pillowcase.

^Flowers ?

They had this doctors appts together. It went decently – I was a little nervous to take both at the same time!
