12 Weeks

Baby Girl is already twelve weeks old! Can't image life without her. She is so sweet. I love her sweet little head, so soft to the touch, so irresistible to kiss! And her little tummy, arms and legs are starting to round out, even more deliciously kissable.

12 week status update: She is still sleeping in Mommy & Daddy's room, in both the swing and the bassinet. Most nights, she'll have a longer stretch sleeping from dinnertime to 11-1, then a couple 2-3 hour stretches. She had one miraculous 7 hour stretch sleeping in the swing, but that was a one-time wonder, at least for now. But even if she doesn't sleep for super-long at a time yet, she almost always goes back to sleep after a 10-15 minute feeding. She eats about 10 times a day and is now wearing size 3 month clothes. Overall she's a very calm and happy baby. She does have fussy times, usually right around dinnertime, but she loves sleeping in the swing, and that almost always calms her down. She sleeps in Mamie or Mommy's arms sometimes too, because she's too sweet to set down. She likes it when I talk or sing to her. She smiles and coos and burbles.

Weeks 9-10:
 We like baths...very soothing.
 And being cozy and warm. I think I have a picture of Indiana in exactly this same pose. So sweet snuggled in a towel.
 Cute little skirt!
 Isn't she lovely? That creamy skin, bright blue eyes. She's a stunner.
But we make funny faces too. Since there's lots of pooping with all that eating. And her poops can be gas-powered and shoot up and out! I don't know if I should change diaper types/sizes, or if a few leaks are inevitable.
 There's nothing sweeter than a sleeping baby!

Weeks 11-12:
 Princess Piglet. So dreamy propped up on the Boppy.
 Sharing some cuddles with Daddy and brother.
 Getting some QT with Nana.
 And we've found our fingers. Slurping (loudly) is fun.
Sweet little girt just fell asleep on my shoulder. Love cuddling with her.
 This is a good position for chatting and singing. I get lots of smiles this way.
 Learning to use our hands in her cute little bubble dress.
 Squeaky clean!
 Sweet little yawn.
 Love that belly!!
Lots of cuddles from Mamie.
