Penny Escapes

This is how I found Penny after a nap.  The sneaky little thing managed to get her arm out a swaddler that Andrew named "the baby straitjacket".

Penny loves sucking on her fist (even through her blankets) but will constantly startle herself awake if we leave her arms out, not that that stops her.  Penny is a pro at breaking out of swaddles.  We thought we could contain her with the fancy new swaddler but Penny has yet to meet a blanket she couldn't best.

Penny also likes to wriggle around in her crib until she gets her feet stuck in the bars.  Penny will lift her legs up and throw them to the side in an effort to get her mouth closer to her fist. Often I will notice on the video monitor that she has both legs stacked on top of each other stuck between two bars.  

Eventually she falls asleep and I sneak into her room and roll her onto her back and away from the bars.

Like Her Dad

When Penny was born just about everyone agreed that she looks like me.  My mom kept remarking that holding Penny was like holding me again and she couldn't understand why I kept hogging her baby!

Lately, I have been seeing more and more Andrew in our little Penny.  I think she might have a bit of Andrew's serious and contemplative nature.  The expressions Penny is pulling in these pictures are all Andrew!

Good thing Penny has her Dad to save her when I getting carried away our with photo shoots (which is shocking since I have never enjoyed taking pictures)

P.S. Don't you just love those chubby baby thighs? Is there anything more precious?
