8 Weeks already!

First of all, I have to say a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my mom who turns 65 today!!  I love you mom! I think that our mother/daughter bond has become even stronger now that I'm a mom and can understand your love for me even more than I did before.  You are such a great mom to Jonathan and to me and a great grandma to Adalyn! Love you!!

 (I couldn't find a post-pregnancy pic of us.)

My baby is 8 weeks old already.  I just can't believe it! She is completely in 0-3 clothes and still size 1 diapers.  But she can still wear newborn sized onesies (I guess her legs are just long!) so she is wearing newborn size in these pictures!

She is so precious!  She has been smiling on purpose for a couple weeks now but its definitely been more often.  Sometimes she'll just smile and coo and make little squealing noises.  I was talking to my mom on the phone the other day and she could actually hear Adalyn "laughing" over the phone.  We've tried to get her cooing on the video camera but we're never fast enough!  Just yesterday I was holding her and she was "talking" with me and smiling at me and she reached her little hand out to touch my face.  **Melt my heart.** She's been batting and kicking her little play gym that she lays under for a while now, but this was the first time that she actually reached out to me and once she did it one time, she did it over and over again (so I know it wasn't a fluke!).

Here are a few pictures from this week...

She's getting so long! I can't believe the difference between her 1 week picture and this one!
 Here is my attempt at catching the precious smiles on camera!
 A half smile...
 Sitting like a big girl! I could kiss those cheeks all day!
