Goodness. Where do I begin?

Nothing new has happened since January, but at the same time we have experienced an entirely new world with this little girl. Avery has been a whirlwind, and we love her to the moon and back.
She smiles at her mom and dad, and now we're both convinced it's not just gas.

She's a party girl at night, just like her mom. She eats a lot and often, also just like her mom.

She's happiest right after she eats, and I know her well enough now to see signs that she's run out of steam and about to have a meltdown if she doesn't fall asleep soon.

My goodness, how this kiddo is growing. At 7 weeks, she has outgrown her newborn duds and is already wearing 3 month clothes. Everybody asks us how much she weighs, and we have no idea. Will find out during her 8-week checkup tomorrow.

Her favorite toy is a zebra rattle that her dad picked out for her. She also enjoys pulling hair and pushing off of everything with her legs.

She's a little fish! One of our favorite activities is to take a bath together. I'll fill up our garden tub, and she's so happy to just float around and chill out with me. Definitely something she inherited from her dad, as I apparently hated baths at this age.

I'm loving the extra time at the house and the time spent bonding with her, and I will love it even more when she has outgrown this fussy stage of her life and we have a happy baby more often. But for now we're on a schedule of eat, happy kid, grumppot, nap, wakeup, eat, and so on.

And we wouldn't have it any other way.
