Week 2 - Life's a blur

So here we are - 2 weeks old. At times it feels as though we just brought her home and other times it seems she's always been here. The past 2 weeks have been quite the journey and I know it's only just begun.

With each passing day Bethany is becoming more and more alert. She loves looking around discovering each new object and shadow. There is no question now she knows her mom and dad and is taken with watching us. It's amazing how much you re-discover the world when you are looking at it through your daughter's eyes.

We are truely blessed with Bethany, she's a great little baby for us. She has her moments, usually around 8pm when she's just a little fussy but other than that she hardly cries. Bath time is something that is such a joy for our little family as she just loves the water. I have never met a baby more content to just hang out in the tub, lookin' around, sucking as much water off her fingers as she can. The only moment that may be a little less than joyful is when we take her out. Generally she squaks a little in protest. However if she all of a sudden gets quiet you'd better look out - she's gonna pee. So far we are very lucky she's only peed on the towel and the change pad but I'm just waiting for the day when daddy get's his own "bath".

Now all we need to do is convince her that sleeping during the nightime is a good idear and we'll have it made. For whatever reason she thinks 5am is a rockin' time to chill and have a gander at things. Oh well, at least she's not screaming.

So here she is, Mommy's little angel - at 2 weeks old.
