an interview

Hello all.

Today's post was going to be a little video of Lena hanging out and talking.   Sadly, once again my posting plans were foiled by a lack of computer skills.... Oh well.  Anyway, Lena is 11 weeks old!  11 weeks sounds like such a short time because it's felt like SO much longer.  Sheesh, what did I DO with myself before she came around?! (  1. slept at night  2. see number 1)

Anyway, enjoy these few pics.  I get to enjoy her ALL DAY which is quite the perk of being a mommy :-)

new skills

Laughing Lena

Hi there.
So 10 week old Lena has developed some new skills.  They include sitting in a boppy chair, smiling, "talking", and rolling over onto her stomach at 3am causing her to wail because she hates being on her belly so much.  

Here are some pictures of her showing off her skills and just being cute:

Hi I'm smiling

Crazy-haired Lena with Grami

The Lip
What "The Lip" dissolves into sometimes...
OK, below is a video of Lena.  It's her smiling and being cute and then showing us her most beloved skill at the very end of the video... so you have to watch til the end.  Sadly, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to rotate this video, so you have to watch with your head tilted sideways... sorry

the many faces of Lena Chérie

Here are some of my favorite faces from my favorite baby girl:

This is the crazy-hair fist-pound look

This is the serious face:

Here's the sleepy-head face:
and here's the smiley face:
although I do think she doesn't look like herself in this picture for some reason... oh well.

All in all we're doing well!  
We're working on getting the nap-time put-down to be a bit more pain-free (yesterday before one nap she cried for 45 minutes... then fell asleep and only slept for 45 minutes... what to do??!!?)
Lena's about 10 and a half pounds now and is getting more and more smiley and interactive, so fun!

More later...

thank you photographers

So I have a collection of Lena pictures that I myself did not take.  Blame it on a mix of forgetting the camera at important events and the dead battery in the camera (currently charging).  if you're on Facebook, you've probably seen these already, sorry.

here are some nice ones (thanks Sheryl & Kristin)

LOVE this laughing one, perfect timing!
Cute little face

This is what it looks like to be the center of attention :-)

Lena will be available for autographs in approximately 4-5 years.
