My little chunk-chunk

Today my little girl turns Twelve Weeks Old!  I might have said it at every age, but right now I think this is my favorite age yet.  She is so responsive and happy.  When we make silly faces or voices she smiles and gives us her laugh face (no laughs yet). 
She has the sweetest smile.  There is nothing I love more than seeing her eyes light up and the corners of her mouth turn up.  And then that little dimple shows itself and my heart just melts!
She is getting so big.  I mean huge, really.  I met another mom with a 12-week old yesterday and her daughter had to be half Eleanor's size!  I mean my girl is just a little chunk.  I often wonder if perhaps I'm feeding her too much.  But alas, Eleanor knows better than me.  I am happy to continue to feed her as often as she wants.  I love that big round belly and those rolly legs!
We have really found a rhythm that works for us.  We're not quite on a schedule, but maybe a routine would be a better way of describing it.  Typically she eats, plays, then sleeps.  We tend to be on a two to three hour cycle.  We just follow her lead and it really does work for us.  She's happy.  We're happy!
Well...usually happy!
I don't want to give too much away, since next week Eleanor will be three months old and another photo shoot and recap post will happen.  So we will stop here with the details, but continue with cuteness:
I love how Eleanor played with her dress.  From the moment we put it on her, she just kept swinging it around in her hand.  She is such a big girl!
Such sweetness!  Happy twelve weeks of existence baby girl!


  1. I need to see her again soon! She does look so big and beautiful! You should be a proud mommy :)

    1. Agreed! I think a walking date is in order...or some froyo :)
