One Month Old Already

Time sure flies (when you're not pregnant, that is!). Isabella is already a month old and changing right in front of our eyes. I could not get her to look at me for this photo, so busy was she looking at the light coming in from the window off to the side. She spends lots of quiet time awake now, just observing her often chaotic surroundings.

This is her signature look: tongue sticking out slightly between her lips. Cute, but let's face it, only at this stage of her life!

Isabella hasn't smiled for real yet, but grants me plenty of previews through her frequent and oh-so-charming sleep smiles. She, like several of her siblings but neither of her parents, has a dimple in her left cheek. I can't wait to see it in action.

Apparently, the photo session was a bit taxing for her.

She is such a joy and I am so happy she is here. We all are. I am falling in love with my other children all over again, seeing how they love her, care for her and regard her as the miracle that she is.

Who could have understood the many blessings of having such a large family? Not me, but I am here to tell you that they far outweigh the challenges.

Love the yawning picture. Babies have such taxing lives. :) What an amazing gift.
