I woke up yesterday and I looked at Annabel and I realized she doesn’t look like a newborn anymore. She has fat on her. She’s losing her hair. Her baby acne has come and gone. Her eyes are often open and focused on my face.

She’s seven weeks old and she’s changing rapidly! We weighed her last week and she was eight pounds twelve ounces. She’s probably over nine by now! She’s gained half of her birth weight. It boggles my mind.

seven weeks

Mike’s parents are here from the Bay Area. They hadn’t seen Annie since she was two weeks old and they flipped over how much she’s changed.

I love putting her on her back or tummy and watching her figure things out. She’s finding her voice, and one of these days’s she’s going to accidentally roll over and scare herself.

Do they always grow this fast?
