I think this might be the first pic (or one of the very first pics) here of Connor Claire with her eyes open, because homegirl sleeps A LOT (it’s what babies do).
She has her daddy’s lashes and lips, and she has my eyes and nose. 🙂
I love watching her facial expressions when she’s awake and alert like this. When she’s hungry, she does this one thing I call pirate baby, where she contorts her mouth to the side and closes one eye, like, “Yaaargh!”
Also, check out her arms! They’re filling out and getting chubbier. So are her little legs and cheeks.
I already can’t deal with her getting bigger. 😭 Yesterday I went to Starbucks to grab a latte and a slice of banana bread (mmm…banana bread), and while I was there I saw a gang of moms with babies in strollers, and all of the babies (that I’m guessing were between one and two years old) looked HUGE.
That’s when it hit me — this tea cup-sized tiny phase is temporary. Connor’s going to keep getting bigger and bigger.
I dunno… I get a little teary when I think about it. Then again, everything makes me teary these days, haha. The postpartum hormone train, toot-toot! It’s a crazy-@ss ride.
