Have you ever tried to take a picture of a baby?  It’s hard! They don’t stop moving, or smile when you ask them to.  And sometimes they get frustrated with being propped up “just-so”.  And then you smile and tickle them and they give you a big grin.  But then you stick this wierd-looking electronic piece of equipment in their face (the camera) and they look at you like you’re crazy. This is our most recent “photo shoot”…

Ha!! I love that look on her face!

In other news, Chloe is holding her head up pretty well on her own.  She bobbles a little bit still, but not much.  When we go out-and-about, we usually put her in our ring-sling.  She’s no longer content to face in like a newborn.  She now prefers to face out so she can see the world.  Today, Scott had her in the sling and it was funny to see peoples’ reactions!  She looks so much like him, and everyone smiles and comments on their likeness.  She’s like his “mini-me”.

We went to the Berkeley Farmer’s market this morning- the whole family!  We’ve been taking her to the Farmer’s market every week since she was 10 days old.  She’s smelled basil, and ripe tomatoes, dill, mint, garlic, peaches, and all the other yummy things we find.  And a couple weeks ago as we made bread, she smelled the yeast dough as we kneaded it.  We have lavender in the yard, so whenever we go outside she smells the lavender.

I’ve been back to work for a week-and-a-half now.  Scott is loving being home with her.  She’s started giggling too.  I woke up one morning to the sound of her laughing in the front room as they played patty-cake.  Wow!  What a great way to wake up!  Why don’t they make alarm clocks like that?
