10 Weeks Old

  • February 28, 2009 4:46 pm

Time is just flying by. I go back to work in 3 weeks and I’m very sad about that. I can’t bear the thought of leaving her every day, even if she will be safe and sound with my mother. Sigh, oh well – not much can be done about it. I’ll just have to take plenty of pictures to put on my desk. Hopefully she won’t forget all about me.

Kira is 10 weeks old now. She is really getting interactive; she smiles and “talks” a lot now. She’s still really good about sleeping at night; not so much during the day, but I’ll take what I can get. Her hair is starting to lighten up a lot since birth. I think she’ll be a light brown/dark blond color rather than really dark like Joseph’s. She’s still very good and easy-going most of the time, but she’s starting to develop a little temperamental side as well.

Here’s her 2 month Sheep Photos that I didn’t get a chance to post last week:


And here are just some random shots:

Why am I sitting here and not eating?

I like Auntie Marianne


She refused to be happy in the photo for her "I love my Auntie" jammies


This was the only position she'd be happy in


Guys - there are bunnies on my feet!


Guess bunnies aren't so bad

1 Month Photos

Happy 1 Month Birthday, Kira!

She is starting to smile for real now, although not very consistently yet.  Her smiles are so pretty, I can’t wait until she does it all the time.

My dad is a semi-professional photographer (i.e., he worked for a studio doing weddings and has all the equipment), so he and my mom came over the other night for Joseph’s birthday dinner armed with cameras and backdrops to do Kira’s one month pictures.  They are always doing photo shoots of their grandchildren, so she’ll have to get used to it.

Here are a few of them.  I think they turned out beautiful, but I’m a little biased 🙂  Those sheep are going to be featured in at least one photo on her month birthdays so that I can see a progression of how she grows in relation to them.  We did the same thing (with a giant stuffed Eyeore toy) with my sister’s kids and it makes for a cute photo collage at the end of the first year.
