Getting to know her

Elinor is lovely.

She makes soft squawking noises in her sleep but wakes up shrieking like a banshee - just once so you have a heart attack in the middle of the night.  Then her cry turns into that of a cat in heat.  Not the most lady-like, but very amusing all the same.

She slept through the night for her first two nights... and then my milk came in and she decided eating was way more fun than sleeping.
She prefers our bed to her crib and my arms to our bed. 

She likes the swing and just might live in it for the next few months.

She as born with a *little* birth mark on her left leg, which we were told would either fade or get bigger as she gets older.  Either way, it's not a danger so we think it's perfect on her.

She has dainty little hands and freaky long monkey toes.

She is perfect.

  1. Hey that is a COOL birthmark! Vanders was gone by the time he was 2. But my sister's stayed.
    She's so pretty! And I love that headband. I need me some legit headbands..
