4 weeks old!

Can you believe our baby girl is a month old? Part of me feels like it has gone by so fast, but another part of me feels like she's been here all our lives. Lea is changing every single day. She seems so big now... she must be well over 9 pounds. Her 4 week well check is Tuesday, so we'll find out then. She is beginning to make more and more sounds (besides crying, which she rarely does). She can also follow objects with her eyes and locate the noise of a rattle very quickly. Like always, she is still very strong... holding her head up and turning her head to look around for several seconds. She also loves music. Any kind. We listen to Paul Simon, Bob Marley, the Dixie Chicks, Caspar Babypants, Weezer and Dave Matthews (to name afew).

Last week, the kids (our nieces and nephew) came over to meet Lea. They were just enamored by her and couldn't stop looking at her! Lilly, who is four, came over to me and said, "Jessie, I really like your new baby." Precious!

They each took turns holding her. If Lea made the slightest cry, they would immediately say, "I don't think she likes me!" As you can image, they were full of questions, too. 'Why is her skin like that?' 'Why is she crying?' 'Where is the soft spot on her head?' Here's a short video of their meeting.

We had an exciting day yesterday. We decided to venture out with Lea (and not have one of us wait in the car with her this time). Once we arrived at BabiesRUs, I put Lea into her new Serena & Lily Market Sling. She slept soundly the entire time. It was nice to get out of the house... even if we were looking at baby stuff!

Not only does Lea love the Market Sling, she also LOVES her lillebaby EuroTote. That thing has been a life saver. She loves to be snuggled up inside the tote. I love that I can easily carry her around the house & place her down without disturbing her.

I will leave you with this adorable video of Lea. Notice how aware she is of the toys and the little throaty grunts she makes... my baby is a genious! :P
