Four weeks old!

Yep, Lorelai is four weeks old today! Happy four week birthday! I have some questions, though. When do you stop using weeks as a gauge for their age? What about how do you decide how old they are? Because technically, she is four weeks old, but not a month old until the 30th. I'm getting all sorts of confused!

Well, click HERE to see the whole slide show of her newborn photos we got taken - in our house by Sherri Winstead. It turned out that our living room made a pretty decent studio.

Those pictures turned out amazing! Lorelai is so cute, but you can tell how much she's changed already since then. PS I LOVE your hair that color! :)

Those pictures are amazing. Made me cry watching it. I love the belly cast ones. Too stinking cute. I am so happy for the three of you.

And in answer to your question. This is how they did it with our kids. Use weeks up until 8. Then go to months up to 24, then use years. It is confusing isn't it?

The pictures are beautiful! I love the black and white! It's hard to remember Dillon being that tiny. They grow up so fast!

thanks for all the sweet comments. Jess, you're right - she has really filled out in the last two weeks! And thanks, Tina for the advice on the age thing. I'll remember that.

One more question, though - how long are babies considered "newborns?"

And Simone - thank you, you're right - I mean, just watching Dillon through pictures is amazing. And I've never even MET him!!

Ask JD how many week's old he is . . . he should know . . .

AliciaDawn said...

Uh..no, I didn't know you were coming home the month of March!!! Maybe Gramps can babysit Lorelai and we can sing karaoke one night!!! He'd love that!!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the pictures! What a great photographer - I will have to get her info from you. Lorelai is so precious - and can she have a more photogenic mommy?

Lol Guitar Hero is a PS2 game. It's like dance dance revolution (that game at D&B that you have to step on the mats with the beats) but it's with a guitar controller instead. It's awesome I love it!

Never... I'm 1534 weeks old. At 1600 weeks I'll switch to using months... that's pretty standard.

I wondered what she was laying in the first few pictures. Those pictures were great! I especially liked the look on her face when the two of you were kissing her.

Can't wait to see you guys in March! JD, wish you were coming home for a visit as well.

Love you both, well all three now!
