Sara Smiles

Since Sara is only one month old I haven't really gotten to know her all that well. What I do know is that she is the second best surprise I have ever had. The first was when her Dad asked me to marry him. (I thought he was breaking up with me) It is so very nice to have a baby in our home again. They bring something special. I love seeing Chase hold her, Emily anxious to help in anyway and Kate talk to her constantly. I can't wait for each new baby stage as they come. Cooing, smiling, laughing, crawling, walking...the works!

So, what do I love about Sara? Three things especially. First I love her warm little body when she is all balled up on my belly. It's just like she never left. I have to admit though that it is much funner to hold her on the outside than it was on the inside. I love to rub her back and little bottom as she takes her little snoozes.

Second, I love her smiles. She gave her first smiles this last weekend to Katie and then a few here and there. Most of her encore performances have been for Kate's eyes only. On Sunday I saw my first Sara smile and then this morning she was giving them away in abundance. They are so sweet. Her smiles even make her eyes light up. It is her way of telling us how much she loves us.

Third and my most favorite is her soft skin and hair. I just love to nuzzle my chin against her furry little noggin and stroke her chubby soft cheeks. I do it so much that my chin has started to break out from the oils on her hair. It is my favorite way to give her loves and she doesn't complain!

She is the luckiest little girl in the world to have a Mommy who loves her so much. It makes me miss my little Ava's baby stages. (Then again...I really LOVE to sleep.) They are truly perfect aren't they?

i am gushing at how super-duper cute she is!! wow!! that smile is addicting!!
I love all the stages of the first 18 months. I love peek-a-boo and crawling. It's 2-4 I could do without!!
So tell me the story of how she wasn't "planned" for!

I love that picture...what a sweet little princess. I can't wait to be holding my baby...I agree that the outside is definitely more fun than the inside!
