Mommy & Daddy's Princess

Look at my long fingers! Daddy says they will be good for setting volleyballs and mommy hopes I'll play piano with them.

Here I am doing some "tummy time." I'm getting stronger and stronger. At my 2 week appointment I weighed 8 lb 3 oz and measured 21.25 inches...I think they had my measurement wrong when I was born! Do you think I could grow 2.25 inches in 2 weeks?
Here I am napping in my crib. Can you guess my favorite color? Daddy says sometimes I sound like a bear cub when I'm waking up from my naps and mommy likes the expressions I make when I'm napping.

Family of Three

We are having so much fun with our newborn girl! Saturday night we captured her foot and hand prints for her baby book via a method that did not require putting her feet & hands in the ink itself. Her footprints turned out pretty well but she was not as cooperative with her hands. We had more fun than she did! Above, she is hanging out with daddy.

Here our munchkin is posing for yet another picture for daddy. She's sleeping really well at night; giving mommy 3 & 4-hour stretches. Whoo-hoo!

Maizie does not like her sponge baths! Pictured above, she is traumatized by the experience.
