Five weeks old today.  And weighing at 10lb 15oz a week ago, little whopper.  That's 3 lbs difference from birth.  It really is amazing how these tiny humans can pack on the pounds!  Now if I could just lose weight that fast, everything would be awesome!

In other "non-baby" news, my new lens arrived yesterday.  I loves it, so much.  Its a 35mm f/2.0, which amounts to about 50mm with my little cropped sensor Canon DSLR.  I have a feeling this lens will live on my camera, unless I am shooting a sporting event.  Sorry 50mm f/1.8.  You've been replaced, thanks for the memories.

I was playing around with the new lens, taking eye pictures.  Pardon me, it was a Saturday morning, so I was make up free.  :o)

One month today.

This past month has flown by!  
My quarter is 2/3 done, February is almost over and my baby bella is one month old!

lately, she likes to smile...

sleep, alot...

and spit up all over herself (and me) then relax in the bath...

but mostly she just likes to lounge around looking cute.

Happy Valentines Day...

These two were my valentines today. 

My big boy Valentine was at school today so he didn't get to take part in my photo shoot.  I am sure he was glad he missed it, little stinker.

No crafting this Valentines day, which is completely tragic!  But I did eat my fair share of chocolate from my hubby, which in turn gave baby bella a terrible tummy ache.  No more chocolate for me.  My diet these days is becoming quite boring!

three weeks!

Three weeks already?  Really?  How can that be?

She is getting so big, all her newborn clothes are shrinking already!  And the newborn diapers won't hold up for much longer either.  I had forgotten, how much they grow at this stage.  It's amazing.  Oh yes, she smiled at me finally.  The big goofy newborn grin that just melts your heart.  Love it!

Random fact, this bottom picture is the 9,999 picture that I've taken in a little over a year.  That averages out to about 25 pictures a day...crazy!

two weeks old today...
so close to smiling and so very sweet.
these newborn moments are just precious.

When I find a spare moment in between, diapers, kids, essays, reading, and trying to sleep, I've been crocheting like a mad woman.  But I can't post pics of my two completed projects yet because they are gifts.  As soon as I give them to their rightful owners I will post pictures.  Then my poor craft blog will actually have a craft to boast!
