Is she really a month old?

Wow, this month has flown by! A month ago we welcomed miss Mia Juliet into the world! She's a sweet, sensitive little girl. Unlike baby Bianca who was a more "spirited" (i.e. intense) baby, Mia is more laid back and not too demanding. I'm not going to jinx myself by calling her easygoing though--too soon to tell! She definitely knows when the people she loves are near and she calls us back if we stray too far. She's very visual, and I can actually entertain her by switching out patterns in front of her--she'll stare at a striped pillowcase for ages and crane her neck almost 180 degrees to see the TV (B barely noticed TV until after 12 months). Although I've made no effort to get her on a routine yet, she keeps very regular hours, just like in the womb when I could almost set a clock by her active periods. She did a five-hour strech the other night and regularly goes four hours at night--AWESOME!

Is there anything cuter than a round baby belly? She is so soft, kissable, and huggable.

Holding her head up like a pro...sometimes she forgets she is only four weeks old! :)

A shot of her little eyelashes--they're so long they get tangly!

We love you sweet baby!
