Tired From a Long Day of Mobile Watching

Aven is 6 weeks old today. She is growing faster than I ever thought possible. She's working on her social smile, which I have yet to capture with the camera, but it's absolutely precious (as if you expect the mom to say anything different).

Her new favorite thing is her mobile. She loves just watching it slowly spin while it plays its little tune. She's content to lay and watch her mobile for up to 30 minutes at a time, kicking her legs and waving her arms wildly the entire time. This allows to me get a few things done around the house, which is nice. The main problem is having to wind the mobile every few minutes. Another issue, not really a problem, is that she is so cute that I will often stand over her crib and watch her watch her mobile instead of doing the laundry or unloading the dishwasher. Oh well. I absolutely love being able to witness all this rapid development. It's fascinating and more than worth the lost sleep.

  1. So true. I'm always telling Asher that he's too distracting- not because he's needy, but that his coos summon me like a magnet to him, just to watch him and chew on his little arms. And what the heck is up with those mobiles!? Asher is the same way- will watch for ages and practically freak out with excitement as they go 'round and 'round. Motherhood has its perks, does it not? :)
