Baby Love ~~~ (6 weeks old)

Perfect love does not come until you have grandchildren~~~

We spent this afternoon with baby Keri. Since our last visit she has already changed so much! She is now 6 weeks old and weighs about 12 pounds.


She is a little snuggle baby and loves to be rocked. There is nothing more wonderful than the feeling of a little one all snuggled into your arms.



When she sleeps she makes little baby cooing noises - my favorite sound in the whole world. After taking care of babies for 33 years, I can tell you that those little coos that babies make in their sleep is the most precious sound that I have ever heard.


She is developing a personality and she loves to watch her mobile. She is mesmerized by things that she sees now~~~



She seems to watch everything and she loves to listen to her gb talk to her. (I think she understands everything I say to her! Do you think that she will remember that I have promised her the moon just as soon as she learns to say gb?)

She even smiles - sometimes! Not on command - but definitely a smile! Baby smiles are so funny!


Papaw takes his turn at rocking the baby. When I checked in on them - the wrong one seemed to be asleep!


Now they are both asleep! (Can you see that little scratch on her face - she did that to herself!) Her first boo boo!

When she learns to say Papaw - this guy is a goner!



They spent the entire afternoon - like this. We got to baby sit for a little bit. They rocked - and I watched! Next time I am leaving this guy at home. He is a baby snuggle hogger!



Photo shoot time! (gb loves to do this!) My cousin Cheri made this adorable baby cocoon and matching blanket for little Keri Beth. Today was Cheri's birthday - so we did a little photo shoot and sent some pictures to her. "Happy Birthday to Cheri - from Keri Beth".

Love those funny faces. This is her movie star pout!



Enough already! How many pictures is this gb going to take of me!




We took Keri's Mommy and Daddy out to dinner this evening. This was her first time to go "out on the town"! She was wide awake for the longest time - everything was new - so much to see! She was such a good little girl!

All that looking around wears you out when you are just a baby! After a bit of being wide awake ~~~ she spent the rest of the evening just like this! (in her gb's lap!) I am in love~~~

Hi Vicki
Baby Keri is absolutely adorable. You must be so proud. She really is a cutie. My daughter used to love sleeping like that on her Dad's front. She sometimes would get a button printed into her cheek!
I loved the last picture of you and Keri together that's such a beautiful picture.

Oh my Vicki, don't you just want to sit down all day long holding your cute sweetheart! I know I did so the first weeks with all my babies. Just sitting on the couch with my baby sleeping on my tummy. Sigh... I loved those moments!
Wishing you a most happy weekend. Enjoy every minute with beautiful precious Keri! xx

Erica said...

Hi my dear friend,
aren`t you the proudest and happiest gb ever? I can definitely understand why you are in love with that little beauty. I could just grab her and kiss here she is sooooo beautiful. How lucky you are. Enjoy every single minute you can spend with her - they do grow much too fast. We had a wonderful short trip to Bavaria. The Chiemsee is really beautiful. And the island Herrenchiemsee in it really is worth to visit. Thank you for your lovely comments. It always makes me happy to read your comments and to visit your wonderful blog for a latte. Hugs to you Myriam

Oh she is such a snuggle bunny Vicki and I just love the expressions you caught in her "photo shoot"! I also love the beautiful pattern of her crib set. So glad you got in lots of snuggle time, and that Papaw got in a good nap too! So adorable. ~Lili

The feet. That's what I love the most on babies ... the chubby little feet! Now, one question. Who's spoiling who? Ha ha.

Karen said...

Vicki,
Wow, thank you for sharing such wonderful photos of your darling granddaughter...I can only imagine how awesome it must be to be a gb...

The Feathered Nest said...

Jo said...

Vicki - these are so beautiful - what a gorgeous baby little Keri is. There is nothing more wonderful that holding a baby.

Esme said...

What beautiful photos of you with your grandchild.

Shirley said...

She is so precious. It doesn't seem like she should be that old already. Our boys were like her in the respect of liking to be rocked. I still rock them at times. Just wait she will definitely have papa and grandma wrapped around her little finger. Just love them and it is grandparents right to spoil them and send them home. Have a wonderful weekend. Your Missouri Friend.

Babies are so precious and she is darling. I love to hear the coos too and that must make you melt. What a beauty. It's amazing how the baby puts the grandpa to sleep. My dad always fell asleep with the grandbabies. That pic made me smile. God bless her and you. Cathy

Tanya said...

So. Now you know.

I've just returned from my babies and my heart hurts, I miss them so.
I pray our house sells so we can move closer! Much love, Dear V. I've missed you. XXX C
