Courtney is 7 weeks old today

Happy New Years Courtney!

Look at me hold my head up, and look at my cute ruffle bum! I love this little sleeper! (Her Nonna bought it for her!)
Over Daddy's shoulder! Look at how strong I am now!

My cutie

Well, how fast does seven weeks fly by? Apparently very fast! I cannot believe how much our daughter has changed over the past weeks. She smiles just a little, and has very serious frown marks (in fact she was born with them!) I think she takes after her Mom! I have serious frown marks too.
Everything is going well, and I am happy! And, most importantly she is happy. I am trying to take in all of her, as I know that the year of firsts go by way to fast, and then we start those 'terrific twos'...maybe she will be the one not to go through that stage? My hope would be that, but in all reality she will be in my make up drawer just like the five older kids were.
I have seen her take a glance at her hand, and she tries to suck her thumb at times. I await full body smiles! Those are the best, and so rewarding after weeks and weeks of just looking, smelling, changing, feeding and repeat. The huge social smile makes everything I have gone through worthwhile!!

Correction: OUR CUTIE!

Cathy she looks so like Cameron in a couple of those pictures. And the last one you put on here, I enlarged and am delighted to see the "blue eyes" even if they don't last, and the little nursing bubble on her top lip. Too darling. And you are so right, where did the 7 weeks go anyway? xxx

Ok, gotta say that your pictures and posts are making me want a baby! She's so adorable, and when they start to smile it just melts your heart. It makes those early weeks of sleep deprivation worth it. Wishing you and your family a very happy 2008 :)
