Just uploaded a couple of videos of Linnea doing cute things. They probably won't be that exciting to you, but she can do pretty much anything and it makes me all giddy inside.
Here's one of her waking up doing what I call "drama arms." It's actually a newborn reflex called the moro reflex that they do whenever they feel like they're falling or off-balance. Anyway, it's cute. And she does NOT wanna wake up.

This one is just of her laying around in her newborn napper on the day of her newborn shoot (which I cannot WAIT to see!), when she was two weeks old. Apparently we were rocking out to "So Hard" by Rihanna. Awesome.

OK. So maybe I'm a mean mom (since she's basically screaming the whole time) but I think it's so funny when we put her binky in her mouth when she's crying- she can't seem to make up her mind whether she should cry or suck, so she does both. And it's sooo cute! I laugh at her for a couple seconds, and then I pick her up and hug her- don't worry naysayers. No permanent psychological damage allowed in this household.

And, of course, the classic hiccup video. It's funny to see her do it now when she used to always get the hiccups in my belly!

I'll post more videos when I take some more. Because I know you can't get enough of her either. Welcome to the center of my universe.
In closing, Cody got an app on his iPod touch called "Atomic Fart." As if regular farts weren't enough, I now have to listen to different renditions of farts at his sole discretion. Sometimes he leaves it sitting around on a timer to surprise me with a fart later. At the moment, he is trying to find the closest match to Linnea's farts, as she lays innocently cooing herself to sleep in her crib.
Somebody shoot me now.
("Shoot you now?" he says. Oh God, he's getting out his iGun app… forget what I said about permanent psychological damage. Clearly we have no standards around here.)
