our smiley baby . . .

I finally got a good pic of Alyssa smiling. She smiles a lot but once the camera is in front of her she usually stops to stare at it. She loves to just lay on the floor and observe people around her or sit in her bouncy chair and watch the toys hanging in front of her. Yes, she's very easily entertained. She doesn't get held much because her older sisters usually come running and don't listen when you tell them to stop poking at her and talking so loudly in her ears. She also sleeps lots still so when she does get held she usually falls asleep and then back to the bassinet she goes.
I love this pic - it's actually Chantel singing to Alyssa. Alyssa was fussing a bit and when Chantel started singing she quieted right down and just stared at her. A great one for the scrapbook!

six weeks old today!

Alyssa is six weeks old today! She weighed in at 10 lbs, 9 oz this morning at her check-up. We tried catching a smile on camera today but it's a little difficult. She does look like quite the poser though.

Elayna's no-nap day

Elayna had a no-nap day yesterday which means lots of meltdowns. I couldn't resist taking some pics during one - she was mad because I woudn't give her the camera so she could take a picture of herself.

Cameron and Alyssa having some bonding time together. It wasn't too often that they were awake at the same time (and not eating!).

Aikema girls

The girls are getting a chance to bond with their cousin Averi this week and our house has been full of screams and giggles today. Here they are all bathed and enjoying their chocolate milk.

Averi, Chantel, and Elayna
