I can not believe how much she has grown since we took these. She was 11 days old in these photos. She has filled out so much since then! Her cheeks are chunkier and her hair has lightened up a tad. This little girl loves to eat! I'm lucky if she makes it 2 1/2 hours in between feedings during the day. And that is 2 1/2 hours from the beginning of the feeding to the start of the next one, which leaves me about an hour in between. She is serious about eating and the whole house hears about it if mommy is even a second late. She loves to be held and cuddled to sleep. My favorite part is looking in her eyes while bouncing her to sleep. I get sucked in and forget about the monotony of babyhood. It reminds me that these times are going to be gone before I know it. This morning I was so tired for that 6:00 a.m. feeding, so I pulled her into bed with me. We both fell asleep. I woke up to her bright eyes staring at me and then a smile when she saw my eyes. It was very sweet! Those are the kind of moments I need to remember during the rough days. Whenever I look at these photos it's hard to believe that there are ever rough days. It should always be beautiful and peaceful like this!
