Sweet Caroline

{This post has a lot of pictures of Cara that I took. You just can’t ask a mom to choose her favorites!}


Our little stinker of a colicky baby has all of a sudden turned into a pleasure beyond description. She has finally started sleeping through the night and has two long naps a day. Heaven!


She is in the 61% for height but still underweight. We’re working to fatten her up.  (This one was taken on the ipod.)


This last week she has been busy sprouting two bottom teeth,

Learning how to sit,

and has decided to skip scooting and go straight to crawling (at least, she’s working on it). She gets up on her hands and knees and then propels herself forward, landing on her chin. She gets frustrated, but she’ll get it soon. I, on the other hand, wish she wouldn’t try so hard!!


My baby is rapidly getting older and will soon be a baby no longer. It’s extra sad because I don’t feel like I got to enjoy her “babyhood” much with all of the crying and wailing and gnashing of teeth. Now she’s moving on to bigger and better things without letting me  bask in the glory of my tiny child.

I love my littlest baby girl. Her smile lights up her face and mine. I can’t wait to see more of her vibrant personality blossom. It’s very vibrant indeed.

For those of you who can’t see the above video, here is the link.

  1. I'm glad to hear the gnashing of teeth phase has passed at last! I know what you mean about getting big too fast though.
    She's beautiful!

  2. It is very hard to decide which picture of her is the best. I think she is soooo beautiful in all of them.
    What a cutie. Love, G. Maria.

  3. She is a doll! Those big eyes are killer. Lucky you to have a full nights rest. Claire still wakes up twice a night! I'm hoping she'll grow out of it soon.
    They do grow up way too fast!

  4. Oh my goodness. Those pictures were the absolute cutest things I have ever seen! How do you get your kids to smile for the camera?! It's my perpetual quest for my kids (Well, my second child, mostly). ha! She really is gorgeous.

    I'm so glad that she's sleeping well and allowing you to really enjoy her “littleness” now while it lasts. 🙂
