Happy Family

Jeff and I are really enjoying being an actual family. Amelia is a really sweet and easy baby, so far. When she is awake, she just looks around quietly-- sometimes for a couple of hours. Anyone can hold her, and she is especially entertaining in her sleep. She very rarely cries, but squeaks a little to let us know she needs something. We heard her squeaking as soon as she was born and thought it was pretty endearing. Jeff and I keep telling each other, "She's so cute!" all day long. We just can't seem to get over the fact that she's actually ours!
