6 Weeks Old

So a very dear friend of mine, Lydia Rodriguez, suggested that I do a better job at updating our blog, that lots of people out there would like to see what we are up to. Most importantly it will give our beautiful baby girl, Annaka, something to look back on. She is right so hopefully I will do a MUCH better job at keeping this up than I have been. Some posts will be to you the reader and other post will be to Annaka. I guess which ever seems appropriate. I hope that you enjoy our lives as much as we do.

Annaka, Yesterday you were officially 6 weeks old! It has been a wonderful 6 weeks, you are such a sweet tempered, easy going baby. Not that I am surprised by that I always thought that you would be an easy going, fun, adorable child. Right now you are sleeping giving me some time to follow your Auntie Lydia's advice and keep up with our family blog.

What is going on with you: You can lift up your head and turn it from side to side, You smile A LOT and we love it, You are grabbing at things around you more often, You love your Daddy who has started calling you Blue Eyes the past couple weeks. You got your first scrape this week from Gus. He didn't mean to he thought that he was protecting you from Blazer, that was a bad start to a rough day for you, poor baby. You talk in your sleep a lot and make funny faces while you are sleeping. You are sleeping through the night, which means you are sleeping a 5 hour stretch, which Mommy and Daddy appreciate. Now if we can only figure out when that stretch begins we will be golden! You are always looking around discovering the world around you. You always look like you are thinking important thoughts, I can't wait to hear them all!

What a wonderful 6 weeks this has been we are tired of course but that won't last forever. Our house is messier than I would like it but there will be lots of time to clean it later. We don't go out as often as we did but everything and everyone will be there when we are ready. We love our new little bundle very much. Kyle is an amazing father that loves his little girl and has a way with her already that is precious and amazing to watch. There is no one else in the world that I would want by my side on this parenting journey.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Annaka, your mom is right. You are simply the most darling baby I have every met. You are so sweet and patient. You let your Auntie (me) take many pictures of you and you let everyone get their chance holding you and cuddling you. You make the funniest faces and bring hours of entertainment. You have got two of the best parents out there. You wouldn't believe the knowledge your mother has. She knew everything that was happening to you while she was pregnant and you were growing. She has read and researched so much and tries to know exactly what is best for you and your health. Your Uncle Nic and I love you so much and can't wait to find out more about you. But, we can all tell already how smart and sweet you are. Love you! Auntie Allison
