Allie turned 5 weeks old Saturday. Her birth seems both forever ago and just yesterday, all at the same time. I still vividly remember the delivery, but I am also fully aware that she is growing and changing and about to blow through some milestones. She’s started smiling over the past couple of days, and today she’s made some purposeful coos. And as I look at my firstborn, I know my second will be 2 1/4 years old in no time. Although I very much enjoy my toddler, part of me hates that the baby stage can’t last forever. Allie is so small and cuddly, and her head smells so good (unlike her neck, which gets regurgitated milk trapped in the folds, thus producing a substance with the odor of expired cheese)!
Here are some pics from the park Saturday. Lexi enjoys the swings, and Allie enjoys sleeping.
