Stella Times…Week 17

Dear Stella, 

You are rubbing your eyes all the time – are you sleepy or have allergies like your Momma? We aren’t sure… 

You are now 17 weeks old, and you will be four months old this Sunday on Easter. I can hardly believe it! Here’s a photo montage of our past week:

We’ve been taking lots of walks…

 and lots of naps…

 You love looking outside (just like your Daddy)…

 …and you love chewing on your new Sophie the Giraffe.

 Airplane is still your favorite game…

 And you’re loving your new mirrored stars next to the changing table.

You got your first DVD (Baby… 

 …and you totally loved it!

Daddy watched you for the first time for an ENTIRE DAY… and apparently you got dressed in Cardinals gear and purple socks and watched your first baseball game together. 🙂

 You are getting SO good at tummy time… (I love that raised eyebrow – you do it all the time!)

…and when you’re on your back, you have figured out how to pull on the toys, roll on your side, and swing your body around 180 degrees to get to the next toy you want. I am SO not ready for you to be mobile!!

Your friend, Lily, came over yesterday to show you the ropes…

 …and Daddy celebrated buying his new truck for the company he’s starting that is named after you!

It’s been another great week with you, Bells. Last night you slept from 9:30-4am straight (longest stretch ever!), and your buddy Liam was finally born! I can’t wait to watch you two grow up together.

Love you so much, Stella.
