Staying Distracted


We go back and forth about Charlie's hair color. His eyebrows are completely blonde-- so much so that you can't see them unless you're looking for them. But his hair is darker on top of his head. I guess it's still up in the air about which way he'll go.


Charlie and I had such a great cuddle this evening. His head is so soft and baby-smelly. It's good stuff.


Charlie can suck on his pacifier for a few minutes at a time. He still gets a little to distracted by it and forgets to breathe, so we have to limit his binky time. Both his nurses today told us that he has a "good suck." I'm so proud.


Lily was quite interested in watching her mommy today, and sometimes she even likes to look at me. But we're quite sure that once she discovers mirrors she'll be most fascinated watching herself. She's very pretty!


Lily was being Lily today but she wan't cooperative at all when it came time to take out the camera. She would open her eyes nice and big and make smily faces, but then as soon as I pointed the camera she would close her eyes and stick out her tongue. Just like a bratty twelve-year-old!

Awww, that picture of you and Lily looking at each other is beautiful. It's amazing how even when they're so young, kids have personalities all their own. The brattiness is a lot more amusing when they can't talk, though! :-p

Those pictures of Charlie and Lilly are so adorable. They are getting so big. I know it's going to be a rough day today for you, but that little angel is watching over you. Sometimes, we can never understand why God lets these things happen in our lives.But, I want you to know my thoughts and prayers are with you always. Those two will be home soon. Travis' mom

A picture is worth a thousand words. They get more beautiful as each day passes. Hang in there!

I've just recently come across your blog (it takes a while for it to come to Australia - joking), and I just wanted to post a short not. I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful AnnaLeigh. Your strength and courage in this time is overwhelming. After 6 IVF attempts and a difficult pregnancy we were blessed with our health little girl on New Years Eve. I will go and hold her just that little bit closer tonight. I hope that knowing your baby was loved will help ease the pain at this difficult time.

Is it possible for them to get cuter? They look fabulous! Keep growing Lily and Charlie...

Such sweet babies!

Charlies hair may well change color many times. My son was born with a full head of jet black hair, then it turned sandy brown and fell out.

It grew back in blonde!

Your blog about your wonderful babies is the first thing I read when I get to my office every morning. I've been out of town since last Friday due to a death in our family and I was anxious to catch up this morning. I am so sad to read about Annaleigh. We, too, had a very sudden passing in our family of a most sweet and loving man. I'm a firm believer that all of the amazing people that we have lost are together watching over us. Our Uncle Johnnie loved my infant daughter but only got to meet her once because they live so far away. I hope they have met and will keep their eyes on all of us. He has wonderful stories to tell and will keep her entertained forever. Your family is in my prayers.
