Alice and her dad

As of yesterday, our little one is 1 month old. At this exact moment, she’s in her dad’s arms bopping her whole upper body around to a Sufjan Stevens Christmas CD. She’s moving her little head back and forth with a wild energy (and completely new and unexpected neck control–we’re in disbelief), with plentiful “ah”-ing and grunting and cooing.

We’re on the couch just laughing. She is the most lovable, the fuzziest, and the funniest little human we’ve ever seen.

And in the course of writing this short post, my little girl is now ravenous. One bosom, coming up . . .

    It sounds like you’re both enjoying your little girl immensely. The pictures are wonderful. She’s so tiny. I love her lil’ fuzzy head! Hope all is well with your beautiful little family Jenna :) xoxo

    I love seeing Adam hold, look at, and care for Alice!! What beauty, what tenderness. You’ve got a great husband and a wonderful father for a life companion.

    These are such beautiful photos and moments, thanks for sharing!
    Oh!, and last night I had a dream about your blog entry “popcorn bowl”, can you believe that?? I’m badly craving some popcorn now too.
    You know you’re a good blogger when taking a break; causes people to have to dream of your blog to fill in the absence of posts…

    Oh Jenna, she’s a little daddy’s girl already. The pictures are so sweet. I miss your blog posts! I check my email every morning and when I saw that you’d posted today I may have squealed a little 😉

    Jenna, your “selflessness” as a mother is shining through in this post featuring Alice and her Dad. (Of course, someone has to take the pictures!) You are thought of often and fondly. xo

    Jenna, thank you so much for posting bits of your life. It is comforting to know that there are happy couples with happy families in the world. I always feel happy when I visit here. Alice is adorable and blessed to have you and Adam as parents.

    Sweet sweet pictures. *sniff* Thank you for sharing. Your word illustration of how she’s dancing made me smile big time, and I can’t believe she’s already doing that at one month! She’ll be speaking in two languages next!
