Lea, Week 2 to 3

For those of you wanting a nice fix of Lea Paxton, this one is for you! Here's a chronicle of some pictures taken by Sharon during week 2 of Lea's life:

While Grammy was here last weekend (as opposed to while she was here helping us out again this past week), she decided that it was high time to sponge bath the baby. Here's Lea getting ready for her first bath:

At first, she was pretty much okay with what was going on:

This, however, quickly changed as she realized that she was about to be scrubbed and soaped and grammy-handled:

Like Hallie, though, Lea is not much of a crier. She basically cries a bit only when hungry (easily addressed), pooping (pretty easily addressed, though this takes some working out when you don't quite have gravity on your side yet), or getting changed. After that, she's as content as can be:

Lea does, however, make a lot of little noises otherwise (a side benefit of not having a paralyzed vocal cord, I suppose). Most of these are squeaks and grunts. This has earned her the nickname "Squeaky Grunty."

Here's a nice shot of Lea looking all snuggly:

And here she is sleeping (she does a lot of that, basically in rotation with eating and pooping, though she's had a lot more alert hours this past week):

And here's her cute and pensive look:

She often looks cute and pensive. Here's some shots of Lea being cute and pensive in a lovely set of giraffe jammies that our friend Sara brought her:

And here she is yawning. She has the sweetest yawn!

Anyway, for those of you looking for a Hallie fix, hang tight. I'm in the middle of a post about Hallie where I talk about: 1. more run ins with the 3-5 Early Intervention folks in our quest for preschool placement; 2. a delightful visit with Jake and Gina; 3. Hallie's surgery (which went fine, all things considered); 4. a fun time had by Hallie at the Please Touch Museum, as well as our regular eating and food related update. So check back soon...I promise this is in the works!

She is soooo beautiful! I still owe you an email with the numbers of the dentist and school Charlie attends. Next time I climb the stairs, I will shoot you an email. Did I mention how cute she is?!?!?!

Great photos! Lea is quite the beauty. I particularly like the "pensive Lea" look!
