Our First Month with Eliana

It's been quite an adjustment getting used to having a baby in the house, but we are overjoyed and so in love with our new daughter...God is so good! She has grown so much since we first brought her home from the hospital...I'm amazed! I sometimes wish I could stop time just for a moment....I know, she's barely a month old....but time flies, and before I know it she will be a year old.

Eliana has quite the personality already...she makes lots of funny noises and faces. I especially enjoy her frown...we call it her thinking look (see below in "More Pics"). In fact, she must have made this face all throughout her time in the womb as she already has a little wrinkle between her eyes! She has her happy, content moments and her fussy moments, but she is starting to adjust to this crazy world. She can hold her head up pretty well already and loves to look at things, especially faces. She is most content being upright on someone's shoulder or chest...and she will often fall asleep in this position. She has also smiled a few times at daddy and myself....I'm not sure if this is a true smile, but we like to think so. We can't wait to see what the next month brings!

What a beautiful little cousin! It's been way too long already since we've seen you guys, but I can't wait to meet little Eliana!
Hope all is well!

She is absolutely beautiful! Stacy, she looks just like you! I am so glad that things are going so well for you. She seems like she is adjusting to the world wonderfully. She must have really good parents:)
