So much to be thankful for!

Today, on this lovely Thanksgiving 2006, Anya is 5 weeks old, and obviously her mommy and daddy have a lot to be thankful for this year.  Our baby girl is getting VERY big – at her pediatrician’s appointment last Friday, she weighed in at 10 lbs, 10 1/2 oz., and she was only 4 weeks old then!  Anya has gotten so much better at having her diaper changed and taking a bath without crying; she even seems to enjoy them now.  She can maintain eye contact more consistently and is learning to smile in response to someone talking to her (and boy, is that smile beautiful).  Also, she is discovering that she has hands and fingers, and that sucking on them is quite enjoyable, although this still happens by accident most of the time.  Unfortunately, she can’t take advantage of this new skill at night, since she still needs to be swaddled to sleep soundly without startling herself awake with her crazy flailing arms.  However, she is starting to sleep for longer stretches at a time, which her mommy and daddy REALLY appreciate.
