Two weeks old
Four weeks old
But by 5 weeks she was smiling, making eye contact, and cooing, and now at nearly 7 weeks she's positively flirtatious.
(The following photos were taken just shy of six weeks)
So far she has been a very easy baby. Other than a few fussy days when she insists on being held constantly, she hardly cries; she will usually make small dissatisfied noises for some time first, giving me plenty of opportunity to figure out what she needs. We took her with us to see Skyfall last night, something we never would have attempted with Carson, and she did great!
She is a great sleeper and goes 7-8 hours at a stretch at night already. I love this! At this age with Carson I was exhausted and frustrated with his inability to sleep long at night or take more than a 40 minute nap during the day; everything feels much more relaxed with Laramie.
As she is getting more interactive, she also seems to want people around more. Left by herself she may start to fuss, but will often return to smiling if someone comes back to visit her. I don't remember this with Carson, but perhaps he wasn't left alone much! Fortunately, with this baby we have an extra person around to keep her company.
