8 Weeks


So, Elsa is almost nine weeks old now. Some things remain the same since the day we brought her home and some things are rapidly changing.

Elsa still enjoys her cuddles, her food, and her blankets. She has come to appreciate the diaper changes and the changing of clothes. We go through burp rags and bibs like crazy because she is a happy spitter.

Elsa has enjoyed looking past whoever is holding her and checks out whatever is on the walls. She likes to "stand" on our laps and do a version of bouncing. She is beginning to hold our gaze and smile back at us. As of today, she has really started to chat on her own.

Proudly, Elsa sleeps through the night and is a pleasure to put to bed each evening. Of course, she has her fussy times too. Usually, it happens during dinner time, but as long as she is being held and walked around, she is content. But don't even think about sitting down. She will let you know that was not what she had in mind.

Congratulations--what a cutie! I apparently haven't visited The Midwestern Position in over 2-3 trimesters. :) Life is good here in Charlotte; I got married in October. Cheers, -Kirk

Are you OK?

Did you quit blogging, or are you like me, out of the habit (out of sight, out of mind), blaming "being busy" (when if fact I'm no busier than I ever was)?

Miss you. Would like to see more of Elsa, too.
