so here we are as usual, much later than i'd hoped. i don't want to miss out on documenting all of little bean's daily adventures.
emmie collins, you're now 3 weeks old and getting stronger and bigger everyday. you are such a sweet little girl and my heart just about explodes when i hold and snuggle you.
you are precious in the morning. when i come get you out of bed you just stare at me with bright eyes. you're just simply adorable - it may easily be my favorite time of day. you slept in your handmade cradles for the first two weeks or so and then graduated to your crib before poppa started his big boy job. he needed to get some sleep sans your many grunts and coo's. by the way, you are very vocal. you found your voice about a week or two in and have been 'talking' ever since. you make mom and pop laugh all the time with your oh so many noises.
you're also losing your baby 'fuzz'. this is good news for your shoulders but not such good news for the top of your head. you have very long hair in the back so the thinning upper portion [aka the horseshoe effect] is a little troublesome. don't worry princess, you'll grow out of it. someday you're going to have more locks than you know what to do with.
before you curse me for having a sleepy babe, you should know that just about every other night or so she screams her face off for an hour or two. completely inconsolable. nothing is wrong, she's just pissed. we're praying she grows out of that soon because her angry hour falls when we will need sitters most often.
you do awesome things with your hands when you eat. well, all the time but especially when you eat. sometimes you fist pump [which i was almost tempted to ask the dr. about because that seems really strange for a baby], sometimes you try and hold my hand or squeeze my fingers, and sometimes you just point, ever so delicately with your pointer or pinky. it is adorable.
we're getting into a bit of a routine and can't wait until life is just a tad more predictable. i can't believe we're creeping up on a whole month old!
