One Week


Asleep on Dad's lapLilia on Mum's shoulderAt the risk of turning The Pink Lemon into a baby blog, here are a few more photos of Lilia during her first few days at home.  She’s a lot more active these days, she has hour or two spurts when she’s completely wide awake, a good time to get some photos of her with her eyes open. 

My mum sifted through the photo albums from when I was an infant, telling me over the phone that the likeness between Lilia and me as an infant is striking.  She mailed me a few copies of some of my baby shots taken with my grandmother that I included here.  I must say that full head of hair and her solid stature is quite a lot like mine when I was a newborn…
