So, I have discovered why there are fewer photos of second children: you don’t have a hand free to hold the camera. (SLRs are probably even worse than point & shoots in this regard because you really need two hands.) We’ve done a bunch of fun things with Camilla lately that were so cute and I even had my camera in the vicinity, but I was holding and often feeding a certain baby the whole time and just couldn’t manage anything else. Sigh. I guess that’s what memory is for.
It’s hard to believe, but
Beatus Beatrice is five weeks old already. And she is becoming so much fun!
She’s definitely awake a lot more these days, and when she’s napped and well-fed, she’s pretty content to just sit and look. And look, and look, and look. She is currently obsessed with our front window, which evidently has the perfect blend of brightness and contrast.
Little Bea is getting pretty strong and can lift her head up, she just didn’t feel like it for this photo. When you hold her, she always wants to be looking over your shoulder and I barely support her head anymore.
Oh, I should also mention this week’s new development: smiles!
They don’t come very often and you sometimes have to tickle her nose to bring it on, but I just love how it transforms her round little face.
I guess “bright eyes” is a pretty good nickname, eh?
Speaking of eyes, both husband and I had eye appointments recently and we are getting new glasses for the first time in five years. Yay! He’s ordered his already and I am hauling the whole family to the Glasses Store tomorrow to help me decide between three pairs. What can I say? I am indecisive. Plus, glasses are the one wardrobe item that I wear every single day so I definitely need a second opinion. Maybe I will post a pic when I get them. :)
