From the early days, when Josephine was just a tiny dot on an ultrasound, the song I associated with her was Can't Take My Eyes Off You. It was possible at the time that she really was too good to be true. But she kept on hanging in there and growing and I started thinking "You'd be like heaven to touch. I wanna hold you so much, just not for [#] weeks until you are full term." Now she's here and I really can't keep my eyes (or camera) off of her. I could write more, but I'm pretty sure you're mostly here for the baby pictures anyway.
Josephine can't even with this outfit. (This was just after her first bath and she was shivering like crazy. So I went for the outfit with mittens and matching hat, plus socks.)
Back when she was a skinny little thing
One month old. Hair styled by Daddy.
We put the cedar chest under the window and bought a cushion for it, intending for it to be a window seat. Then it became a changing station. Which became Josephine's personal window seat and is still her favorite spot. She just doesn't get to hang out there unattended anymore now that she's becoming more mobile.
When I put this one up on Facebook, Raj was incensed that hours had passed and she didn't have more than 100 likes because "it's the cutest baby picture ever!" Rest assured, she did get more than 100 likes before too long. It was a Friday afternoon when I posted it so our Facebook friends are forgiven for being pokey.
The Sit Me Up is fun briefly but also a lot of work for her abs and neck and, therefore, exhausting.
My favorite outtake from her two month photo shoot. Josephine is so over it. I feel like we'll be seeing this face in plenty of photos during the teenage years.
We flew to Albuquerque last weekend for Raj's 20th high school reunion. Here is how Jo spent most of her time on the flights. Thank goodness.
Oh pretty baby
Now that I've found you stay
And let me love you, baby
Let me love you.
