I can hardly believe that it has been one month since our sweet Victoria joined our family. The past four weeks have flown by and it is a sobering reminder that our children grow up so fast. Sometimes alot faster than we would like...sometimes not fast enough.
She has just moved right in with the family and it is as if she was always here. The children love her to death. Bella loves to lay next to her and talk to her. The fun thing is that Victoria has started talking back, which we all just love. Aria wants to hold her all the time and thinks that the baby is her personal babydoll. And Micah loves her head. He loves to rub it and kiss it. He says that he loves it because it is so soft. I agree with him, I love to rub her soft head too.
She is smiling and talking alot more now, although it was around 2 1/2 weeks that she smiled for the first time, even if it was somewhat involentary. It is so cute now because she is trying to figure out how to make sounds come out of her mouth so she is constantly making faces.
It is these things that make the fussy times more bearable. As with most babies, she is getting more fussy as we approach 6 weeks old. She is becoming more alert and with that comes increased fussiness. It is hard sometimes but we know it is temporary. This too shall pass and I know I will look back and miss this time.
