For those of you that don't know, Trenton has a stuffed giraffe that he is obsessed with so Ben's parents got Arianna this giraffe for fun :)
Unfortunately anyone under the age of 18 was banned from the hospital at the time because of all the illness that was going around (and even more unfortunate the ban was lifted a few hours after Trenton went down to Ben's parents.) So Trenton didn't get to see Arianna in the hospital and had to wait until the next day when we got home. But when he got to see her he was so excited. Now almost 5 months later he still loves her and loves to help take care of her. Sometimes he wants to help too much and Arianna ends up getting hurt, but at least he doesn't resent her or anything. Plus she will be a tough cookie having to put up with Trenton's craziness and love of wrestling :)
Arianna was born a great sleeper. After her first feeding she slept for 8 hours, woke up and ate, then slept for another 8 hours. She didn't stay that awesome of a sleeper, but she was still pretty good. Since getting over her colic (oi that was a long month) she has become pretty awesome again. She sleeps from about 8:30 pm to 6:30am. It varies obviously since she is a baby, but in general it is pretty nice :) She has really struggled with naps, but is getting a lot better. I also figure since she is so awesome at night, I can handle the cat naps she takes.
We were lucky enough to get a free photo session when Arianna was about a week and a half old. They turned out really well for someone who was just starting their photography business!
Arianna loves to smile and laugh, Daddy of course gets the best laughs. She took longer to smile than Trenton, but was laughing right after she started smiling. Actually she has been laughing in her sleep since she was born, it is pretty cute. Another thing she loves is her tongue! She has a super long tongue and she has played with it since day one. She also loves to scratch things in order to feel them. Most babies put things in their mouth, she scratches them instead. We all love her and her cuteness. She has brought a lot of love into our home and we are so grateful for her. And I can't believe she is already almost 5 months! Here are some random pictures over the last few months.
