I am wife to @ryangauper, photographer at @gauperphoto and catmom to @dumagauper. I have a terrible memory and use my Instagram to remember my life.
Nap #2 of the day. She's not in as deep of sleep this time but at least she's quiet!
I am healing but man it feels so slow. I can move around the house now but get exhausted really easily. I had to quit the Motrin since it's killing my stomach so not having any medicine isn't my favorite but it had to happen sometime. If she makes it to 2:30, we will have gone on a 3 hour stretch of sleeping which is a big deal since I've been alone with her since 10:30.
@ryangauper is my baby whisperer. He's so good at calming her down. I'd be a complete mess without him right now! #gracegauper
Grace and her own little Duma! My heart is just exploding from this. @melissagregersenphotography is amazing! It takes such a specific type of personality and set of skills to shoot newborns like this which is why I didn't attempt to do them myself. #gracegauper
Happy first Father's Day @ryangauper!! I have always known Ryan would make a great dad. What made me most excited about Grace was being able to watch him love her. She is his little clone and I know they will be best buddies. 😍#gracegauper.
Ryan has to work quite a bit since it's the summer but it's such a bummer when he has to leave. #gracegauper
And this is why I complained about her hurting me all the time while pregnant. She is so squirmy!
/swipe/ Newborn photos were so fun today! I think I'm gonna die when I see them finished. 😍😵
Just had newborn photos taken of Grace by Melissa Gregerson and oh my word, I'm gonna lose my mind over how many cute and seemingly impossible poses actually just happened. She is a wizard!
Ventured out into the world today for a brief moment before I got too tired and my incision started to hurt. I don't love leaving the house but ryan makes it less of a panicked experience. #gracegauper#oneweekold
