Good Morning, Sunshine!

Our daughter is so delightful in the morning. We wake up to the sound of cooing and happy sqeals across the baby monitor. When we go into her room, she's usually laying in her crib, happily swaddled, entertaining herself by making noises.

We walk in and start talking to her, and she turns her head and smiles at us, which is just the perfect way to start the day.

We unwrap her swaddling blankets and she proceeds to streeeeetch and kick her little legs as though they were constricted all night long.

Then we pick her up and she chatters away at us, full of energy and ready to start the day!

I'm guessing she looks like the Wickland family, cause I don't see any Bitikofer in that face!

I've been looking for you! It's about time for our 10 year reunion. Are you up for it?

My email is jessi@shoutfromthehills.com . I'll be waiting to hear from you!!

By the way your little girl is ADORABLE!!

I still have a hard time deciding who she looks like. Sometimes she looks like my baby pictures, but other times she looks like my mom's side of the family - she's got Leif's coloring, but her hair looks reddish sometimes... I guess we'll just have to wait and see what she looks like when she's older!
