    Congrats! I was wondering when your little one would arrive too.
    I had mine on Monday at 5:38p. All natural birth. I don’t know how
    I could have done it without my husband. But it was the most amazing
    and empowering feeling ever. I hope you are doing well and healing.

    Welcome, Avery! Give mom and dad 6 weeks… it usually takes that long for us adults to make sense of the whole baby thing. Until then, eat well, sleep often, and be patient you beautiful little girl!

  49. Tara says:

    Congrats! She’s a beauty. Enjoy your time together these first few days. I remember just sitting and looking at my little girl the days after she was born and was so amazed that my husband and I had made something so tiny. She’s now eleven and wears the same size shoes that I do, so enjoy the years when you have the upper hand, er, foot. Truly happy for you all!

    • chezerbey says:

      Haha, thanks Tara! I’m even amazed how fast this first week has gone by…but yet, a LOT happened in a week!

  50. Liana says:

    Congratulations you two – she is lovely!
    I’m counting down the weeks – 10 more to go – until we have #2! Seeing your wee one brings back all the love and joy we felt with our son in the first few days – and it just keeps getting better!

    Beautiful lovely baby, just too much beauty to fully capture in a few images. Congratulations a million times again and again.

  66. Lilly says:

    Beautiful baby! Congratulations and soak in every minute.

  67. Breanna Kion says:

    Congratulations!! She’s beautiful πŸ™‚

  68. Catherine says:

    Congratulations! She is beautiful!

  69. Angela says:

    She’s lovely! How perfect for you!

    Here’s a laundry tip: buy mesh laundry bags and put the socks in them to wash and dry. You could actually put any and all small baby items in a mesh bag, but it will make your life a lot easier just to keep track of socks.

    • kzerbey says:

      Yeah, we call it the sock monster, you know the monster living in the washer and dryer that make socks mysteriously disappear. great idea, thanks.

  70. Ceri says:

    Such a gorgeous baby! Well done. This has been a much anticipated arrival and she hasn’t disappointed. Hope the birth went well and mum and dad are OK. What a lucky baby to be enjoying that lovely nursery. Congratulations from the UK. x

  71. ModFruGal says:

    Awww! Welcome Avery Zerbebe!!!!!

  72. kit @ DIYdiva says:

    She is absolutely beautiful! You know this already but I still felt compelled to say it. Congrats!

  73. Ooooh my goodness she’s beautiful! Congratulations πŸ™‚

  74. Mariane says:

    Congratulations! What a beautifull zerbebe! And very pretty name, enjoy this blissful time to meet and fall totaly in love with your daughter.

  75. brandy says:

    Congratulations! She’s beautiful! Her first and last name sound so good together, well done.

    I can’t remember if it’s been suggested in another post, but the Happiest Baby on the Block DVD saved our sanity the first months.
    But I’m sure she’s so perfect she’s not causing any trouble at all πŸ™‚

    • kzerbey says:

      Yes, we’ve read this book and the 5 S’s really do work! actually just did them about 2 minutes ago after changing a diaper. So far she only cries when we change diapers, I think because she gets cold, she stops usually after the swaddle, side, shoosh, rarely requires swinging or pinky sucking;) of course the rest of the book is helpful too but this seemed to be the most important piece for us so far.

      • brandy says:

        you’re right, the 5 S’s are the best, the rest of the book seems to just explain why you need to do them, that’s why we loved the DVD, it’s only a 30 min. demo of the 5 S’s. The only other real takeaway is the idea of the 4th trimester, just make it through those 1st 3 months, and suddenly it’s a whole new world. Congrats again!

  76. Victoria M says:

    So beautiful! And such a great name!

    Congrats on your little Zerbebe!

  77. Erin says:

    Since I only know you guys from your blog, I hope you don’t think it too weird to send a congratulations.
    Avery, you are lucky to have some very talented parents who seem both incredibly patient and good humored…plus your pretty adorable too!
    All the best!

    • kzerbey says:

      not weird at all;) , in fact 99% of the people who’ve commented, we’ve never met in person;) but we do start to recognize regular commenters and they have their own online personalities that we get to know. thanks for your thoughtful comment.

  78. evard says:

  79. welcome to this big old well-designed world, baby grrl.

  80. kzerbey says:

    Welcome to the world, Avery! It sounds like your nursery was done in the nick of time. πŸ˜‰

    • chezerbey says:

      Haha, it was done a week or so before I wrote the post, but little did I know she would make her appearance that same night!
