I had just laid Julianna in her crib -- she had been dozing in my arms -- so that I could take some pictures of her. Notice she immediately got one arm free.
After getting both hands free, her wee little rosebud of a mouth starting to open... will it be a cry or a yawn?
Tis a yawn! A great big one.
After which, she propped her hand up against her cheek, opened her eyes, and looked around as if deciding to stay awake or go back to sleep. Her other hand is holding the blanket up against her chin. Julianna loves having her hands near her face. The ultrasound pictures I had previously posted show her with her hands up near or on her face.
Jen had given her her first bath before I arrived. I could still smell her new baby smell tho -- Julianna Renee smells wonderful!
Her hair photographs redder than it is -- right now her hair is a medium brown but I can see both red and gold highlights in her hair, depending on how the light hits it.
Stephanie is flying out this week -- she arrives Friday and then flies back to Colorado Monday. I'm going to be going back to Jen's to hang out with both my girls this weekend and hope to be able to take a picture of Mike, Jen, and Julianna. Today was a short visit and it just didn't work out taking a family picture today.
I was glad to see Jen fall asleep after feeding Julianna this afternoon -- she looked so peaceful sleeping that I didn't wake her to say I was headed home. I got in some prime Jujube time while Jen snoozed and Julianna was sleeping as good as her mom when I left.
I promise to post some non-grammy stuff this week. Hoping to have a sunset or two to share.
