Sweet Baby

Eight Sundays ago I gave birth to my beautiful daughter Natalie. In all honesty, it feels a lot longer than eight weeks but not necessarily in a bad way. Her little personality is beginning to bud as she smiles and coo's more and more every day. She seems pretty laid back and likes sitting in her car seat or boppy pillow, chillin'. Matt's parents are absolutely in love with her. They even fuss about who gets to hold her first when we visit and spoil her with love and affection. Her sleeping schedule still has no pattern but I really can't complain. She's taking shorter naps during the day, it still can be a little tricky to initially get her to sleep at night but once she's out she just wakes up to eat and goes right back down. Her eye color is a bit of a mystery. In natural light they look very blue/grey but inside they're much darker. Some angles they even look hazel. The nurses in the hospital said by six weeks we should know the color but I read they can change up to one year. I even had a friend who's cousin had blue eyes and at age seven they turned brown. Weird. Anyway, that about sums everything up. I can't wait for more milestones like crawling and babbling!

She is so precious. The purple headband is perfect against her beautiful skin!

She's SO pretty! Torin's eyes are the same way (inside his eyes look almost black!) He'll be a year old in 3 weeks, and we still can't decide wether they will be green or brown.

Seeing her takes me back to my own when they were so little. Enjoy this time, there's really nothing like a new baby, if I were there I would be fighting over her too!

It's funny because I was never a baby person. But now that my youngest is almost 7 I look at babies almost like unicorns. These mystical creatures that you rarely see.

That 2nd picture is so cute, you wonder what she's thinking.

Oh my goodness, she is soooooo beautiful! Absolutely precious! I can totally understand why her grandparents argue over who gets to hold her first. :-)
