Coming in at 7 lbs. 4.9 oz and standing a whopping 18.5 inches tall, please give it up for my practically perfect niece, Miss Lydia Sue!
Her peaceful beauty is currently stealing the hearts of family and friends across the country, but don't be fooled! This precious little one loves exploring how her facial muscles work and surprising herself with the adorable coos and cries she is able to produce.
At three days old, she is highly skilled in nuzzling, eating, sleeping, making her parents giggle at the end result of her eating, and causing hearts to melt. She loves to be held close and is most comfortable with her tiny, wrinkly hands touching her face.
Her parents, grandparents, uncles, and aunt are all completely enthralled--so much so that they are completely unable to contain the kind of consuming excitement and pride that may prompt a slightly ridiculous, albeit completely genuine blog post.
Love you, my lovely, little Lydia. We can't wait to see you again!
