My view on most days. I'll take it!
This is the second half of a 48-hour stretch without Andy. We did pretty well.
We went to an antique store today and I found Leena's first Christmas present for 2015. Can't wait for her chubby little legs (They aren't that chubby yet so I'm just anticipating.) to toddle around and tug this hippo behind her.
We didn't go in to this parenting thing with the plan to co-sleep, but there you have it. She seems perfectly happy with the arrangement.
Giving the cloth diapers a try. I think she might be a little small yet.
Even though her booties fit a little better now they still might have been a waste of time because she kicks them right off. Oh well. Cute for a photo and definitely cute on her little legs. (See, not chubby.)
Passed out koala baby ruffle butt and koala papa.
Bundled up in a fuzzy pink bear suit Hazel hand-me-down for a quick outdoor adventure. By adventure I mean, Mom's bored and Dad is across the street splitting wood so we are going to go say hi.
Power to the people.
The pig towel from Grandma Dana has become our favorite. Not only for it's adorableness but also for it's absorbency.
The face of a skeptic. What she has to be skeptical about at this age, I have no idea.
The big 2 months! And goodness has she grown! 9 lb. 12 oz. now!
Real BFF's right here. Shirts don't lie.
This kid. And those funny bears on her onesie. (I think this is my favorite 0-3 outfit.)
We spend a lot of time on the couch in the sunroom in this position. Maybe this is Leena saying she's no longer entertained by it.
We have been thankful for these unseasonably warm days when we can go out in our beards and roam the neighborhood.
Sometimes Leena falls asleep while eating and I can just extract myself and leave her to practice her sleep-planking.
Big night for Leena. It's never too early, right? Not right. We're just using her car seat to hold this gift for Bob.
Not the best picture, but I couldn't resist because this is totally something Andy would do. The pose, the face, stick her belly to one side and her booty to the other.
No springtime flowers yet, but the quiet at the garden is just as nice.
This was my first day back at work. She was sleeping on Andy when I left. I gave her a kiss, she smiled, and I cried, but only for a minute. When I got home I started making Amy's Red Velvet for Nate's last day at Station 5. Happy for the excuse, sad that he got transferred. And Happy Birthday, Mom!
When she's out, she's out. From the Ergo to the bed.
There's a lot going on down there on that play gym.
Another day well spent with Dad. Andy captured this winner while I was at work. Her face is definitely the highlight, but the washcloth covering her hiney for modesty is pretty close.
Maymont Nature Center
The Carbonella's are here! They took time out of they're busy schedule to drive down to Richmond to see us! There's nothing better than spending the day with old friends. Wish it could happen more often, that's for sure.
Isn't she the cat's pajamas? I can't help it. Every time she wears those.
Ducky came over and before she left she gave us this gift. Leena stayed in her crib until her first night-time feeding. This never works for me.
Getting ready for our first potluck girl's night out!
Superman selfie for Auntie and Dad.
Hanging out on that play gym some more.
Andy's new trick for Leena: sitting on the edge of the table. She looks so grown up!
I think it's safe to say this has become the Leena blog. I'm okay with that because I think she's pretty mesmerizing.
