Chloe's 1st 2 weeks...

Chloe is 2 weeks and 3 days old today!! And of course I have many many pictures to showcase her first few weeks in the world!
It's amazing how much she changes each day - in small ways. I'm slowly getting to know her better. Here is what she has "shared" with me so far:

- don't even think about putting me down right away after eating...I will flail my arms out until I wake myself up again

- If you'd like me to stop flailing around, swaddle me as tightly as you can. But I will break out of it after an hr because I've been lifting weights.

- If you want me to sleep better, make sure that I don't get awakened or miss a nap. That was pretty funny the other day when you thought that just because I was awake most of the day - I would sleep through the night. Haha!

- I don't know how to smile when you smile at me, but I will smile & coo for you about 5 minutes after eating because I'm just loving life at that point.

- I have the world's best lips...look out Angelina!

Here are some pics...
