Susannah update: six weeks

Has it been six weeks already since sweet Susannah joined us? So hard to believe! The weeks are flying past, and my tiny girl is already losing her newborn look and growing by the day. She is much more alert now and will sometimes cry just because she can't see me nearby. We're also seeing her first tiny smiles. Daddy has coined a few nicknames for her because of her unique communication style, my favorites being Susannahsorus (because she sounds like a little dinosaur) or Susannah Grunt (rather than Susannah Grant).

Aaron continues to make the adjustment to being a big brother, and is learning to share. Yesterday he brought his guitar - the prized Christmas gift - to his baby sister, laid it across her in the bouncer seat, and said "wanna play guitar, little girl?" He also pays special attention to her when she's sitting in her swing. He'll get very close and ask if she's feeling okay, push her seat, or pat her feet. There are times when he struggles with having to share his mama, and he'll ask if we can put her to bed, but after a few extra cuddles he's back to playing with his toys and being a crazy two year old.

We're late for everything these days, so it's no surprise that her one month portraits didn't get taken until six weeks. Even then, her photo session was squeezed between my morning shower, brother's nap time, and a load of laundry. It's all part of life with little ones, this running in a million different directions at once. Enjoy these photos of our precious babe (and hopefully month two will be more timely!).
