the many faces of annabel

I love watching her. In any random minute of the day she makes so many different faces. Babies are so in the moment. A big grin will instantly dissolve into pouty lip. Or a screeching cry becomes a giggle. Today, mainly because I've slacked on the photos for the past week, I put her on the changing table and snapped lots of photos for a couple minutes. Then I put them together into a little movie you can see here. (If the audio isn't working, try viewing it in full screen or in better quality - there's a quirk.)

The smiles and the laughs are the best. I especially love the smiles when she first wakes up in the morning, or when I put a blanket around her, or when she stops eating and gives me a contented smile. You can see some big grins in this video. You also see some chubby thighs. I'm proud to say our skinny little peanut has been packing on the pounds!  She got weighed on Tuesday and was 8 pounds, 10 ounces!  That is a gain of a pound and a half in just two weeks, which is remarkable. 

Keep growing and laughing baby girl :) 


  1. Strange to think... If she gains one more pound she'll be at Colin's birth weight...whoa!
