What I Love About You...9 Weeks

I know I must say this every week, but I really can't believe you are NINE weeks old! At times, it seems like it was just yesterday when you came into this world, but at other times, it seems like forever ago! I still picture you as this little tiny, 23 inch, 7 lb. 4 oz girl, but on Thursday at the doctor you were 12 pounds even! I just can't believe it! You are getting so big!!!!

I love...
-how I found you the other day. You slid down in your positioner which caused the positioner to hold your paci in your mouth. You couldn't get it out even if you tried.

-the little line that your paci leaves on your cheeks. (You have to look really close! Do you see it?)

-how cute you looked the other day when it was cold and we were trying to make sure you were warm for our outing.

-watching your Daddy give you a bottle. This was the third bottle he had given you, but the first picture I took. I was too busy videoing before!

-your little flower-covered pants that used to be Annagail's. I know you and Annagail will be great friends one day!

-to see you when you "hold" your paci. You had your thumb in your paci while you slept the other day. It was so sweet!

-your sweet little birth-marked leg. I'm so glad I get to share that with you!

-the many ways you sleep. I know I say this all the time, but it's so cute!

-how your Daddy just had to try you out in your Bumbo the other day. You did pretty well for being only 2 months old! You have really good control of your head and have had that for a while now. You held your head up for a good bit, but I didn't manage to get a picture of that.

-how much you love your Daddy! It's so wonderful to see you both together. I can just see him light up with so much joy when he looks at you. You are both such a wonderful blessing to me!

-to watch you smile. It's an amazing thing how you smile at me. You love to see my teeth! You almost always give me a huge smile when I smile showing my teeth.

-how completely sweet you look when you are zonked out! I had to wake you up on Thursday morning so we could go see Dr. Shade about your cord and this is how I found you. You were sleeping so soundly, I just HATED to wake you up!

-how you just go with the flow. You are such an easy-going baby that we can do about anything. We didn't get back from the Murrays' the other night until after 10pm and you still did so great!

I love you, sweet Caroline! You bless this Momma's heart!
