Twelve weeks

I remember the last time you were twelve weeks, little Bun.

You could not hold your head up.

It’s odd–over the course of a few days, she went from lying there, a pathetically snurfling inert lump, to holding her head up for minutes on end, checking out the world. We have kicked Tummy Time’s ASS.

You could not fend off ravening lemurs.

Those pesky lemurs.

You could not look contemplative while wearing a girly outfit.

She’s so good with power tools she can afford to wear bows.

When last you were twelve weeks, I already loved you, though I was afraid to love you, for fear you’d vanish.

Then, I had no real evidence of your existence. Now I can hold you in my arms, so warm and strong.

Then, you were an enigma. Now you are my own dear daughter.

Then, I could not drink. Now I can have a margarita.

  8. I like the angle of the first shot – like you just barely caught her on film before she broke out of the frame.

    But where are her bite marks? Surely you must be nomming her day and night?I LOVE that hair. In the last picture, she reminds me of Thom Yorke. Which means she will start a kickass rock band and be all creative and famous and you can quite your job and be taken care of and stuff. Sweet.

  15. I raise a margarita to this post. Baby bun bun is beyond adorable…and that outfit! I am such a sucker for tastefully feminine baby clothes……and, lest I forget, with that head control, she is destined to be a very skilled user of power tools.

  17. We need to take some lessons from you guys and try and kick our lax tummy time schedule. I think he's had about 10 minutes in the last week. I shouldn't admit that I guess! Will try harder tomorrow and maybe in a few weeks he'll be up to where bun bun is!Nice Work!

  21. Wonderful post!

  22. Bun Bun is so delicious and sweet. AND she uses power tools and kicks ass in the tummy time department. Not surprisingly, you have an overachiever on your hands there, Bunny. It's a much different 12 weeks than it was back in fall 2010. It was just about this time last year that you got the BFP. Amazing how things change in 1 year.
