My entertainment these days

Don't watch this video if you aren't entertained by a baby flailing her appendages while lying on a couch.  But if you are, knock yourself out!

Baby Fashion Show

 I'm just going to throw up a bunch of random pictures from the last week.  Get ready to be pummeled by baby cuteness!
Grace has many adorable outfits in the many varying shades of dark pink to light pink.  This one has an elephant on it. 
You can't go wrong with polka dots.
Here she is striking a pose like a film star.  This cardigan goes with every outfit, since it is pink of course.  She tends to get cold all the time in air conditioned places so she wears it a lot.  This photo is from her role in "Grace and the case of the missing sock." 
Playing with Daddy is always a blast.  These PJs are my favorites.  You can't really tell in the picture, but these PJs have little multicolored whales all over them! (and pink trim of course.)
These PJs are my other favorites.  The footies are frog faces and they are a hand me down from her cousins!
Daddy tests out the baby bjorn.  Look, no hands!
Chilling on the couch in a leopard print number.
Same pose different outfit.  We won't go into why.  
This is the best baby smile captured on camera so far!  
And a lovely sunset picture taken by Jason, for good measure.

Five weeks old!

This is a video of Grace and me enjoying some ambient trombone practice and making faces at each other on the floor.

Three Weeks Old!

 Grace is three weeks old!  Here she is lounging on the couch.

The last two days/nights she has been a bit fussy.  Last night in particular, she woke us up 4 times in the span of 1 hour.  Each time, I picked her up, got her calmed down and asleep, only to be awakened again shortly after.  It wasn't until the last time in my groggy zombie state did I realize that she would instantly fall asleep as soon as I held her close in my arms.  I discovered that my baby loves to snuggle!  
Now I shouldn't complain about that, because snuggling is definitely a good thing and a trait she gets from her father.  Who wouldn't want to snuggle up to this all the time?  This is my view much of the day, including two hours sitting up on the couch last night.  But as one friend pointed out, this may be a trap.  Am I going to be holding Baby Grace until she is age 5?  She may be playing me already!
Yesterday she received her first meal via bottle.  Daddy finally gets to participate with feeding, something he was deeply desiring.  I don't mind sharing, and an added bonus is pumping takes much less time than nursing. 
Another outfit involving pants.  Baby pants are kind of ridiculous because you have to take them all the way off to do diaper changes, and those occur... extremely often.  But they are too dang cute to avoid!  As evidenced here.
