Waking up

What with Ella's perpetual busyness, climbing ability, complicated babbling and conversation, and expression of her will, I had forgotten how much of a sleepy little stranger a newborn is at first. But in the past week or so, Nora has started to be more and more interested in the world around her. She is staying more alert and has even smiled a few times. (I can't wait to catch one in a photo!) I've looked back at some old photos of Ella (so old! . . . about 15 months ago : P) and she has that same wide-eyed and somewhat bewildered look on her face. A little baby has so much to take in! No wonder life is so exhausting and distressing for them at first. But it is fun to see Nora starting to get into being in the world a little bit.
