Kissing Cousins

A while back I mentioned being at the hospital every day for a week. I forgot to revisit why we went back after Jeremy came home- I became an AUNT! And I'm apparently a pretty bad one at that, considering she's more than 2 months old and I have yet to say anything about her here.

In all honesty, it's probably because subconsciously I'm horribly jealous. She's perfect. Doesn't cry. Sleeps. No allergies. Has daddy's eyes and mommy's mouth. Oh, and she's been smiling on command since she was two weeks:


Let's revisit Sam around the same age:


What, doesn't look that bad? Here' s the sound track of the first 2 months of her life.
(I'm still shocked that the hairdryer didn't short out with the HOURS it ran every day)

Let's do a another comparison, shall we?
















Classic Samantha- awake and grumpy



Classic Kahlan...not only sleeping but with a BINKY


Sam at 2 months:

Kahlan at 2 months:

*sigh*

Anyway, she's just too cute and I'm so glad she's here. Sam and Kahlan are gonna have a rockin' good time growing up together.

Or, at least Kahlan will.

Hopefully she'll rub off on Sam a bit.

It's amazing how different babies can be, isn't it? I wouldn't have thought of the hairdryer. That's too funny...although I'm sure it didn't seem that way at the time. :P

What a CUTIE!!!!

Oh, and I wish I knew how to knit. I mean, I can knit basic things like scarves and even a dish cloth but when I look at knitting patterns it's SO greek to me!!!

A friend of mine is an amazing knitter and she says she's going to knit me a wool cover! I'm so excited! If I only knew how to knit it myself...
