Addison Marie | 1 Month

A preview of project Face.

When I say that I could look at these pictures for endless hours, I mean it.  The pride I feel is uncontainable.  It explodes out of every single pour in my body like streams of photons.  It twists my face into a permanent smile that resembles that smile that the Joker put on all those people in the first batman move, you remember that?  I plan to take a picture of her face everyday for as long as she lets me.  Thirteen right?  Ha!  It should be interesting to see how long I actually stick with this.  I hope forever.

It has been so interesting to me so far.  Everyone always says that they change so fast, but now I can actually see it.  And everyone is right.  I mean look at the difference in the GIF below.  The first picture “week 00” was taken on her 6th day of life, and the second picture was taken today…

Her face is already so much older looking… in 1 month!  Time just slips away from me effortlessly… regardless of how hard I try hold on.  My knuckles turn white at the strength of my grip, but unfortunately for me RateofTime ≠ StrengthofGrip * Time …  more like RateofTime = Fast * Infinity. Luckily I have my pictures to look at.  When time shrinks my bones and greys my hair I will still have my pictures in my albeit weakened grip.

Speaking of grey hair, a little over a month ago I noticed my first colorless piece of hair.  I told Addison that I would accept 1 per year.  So I have met my quota for this year.  If I was going to name each greyed out hair I would name this one Bob.  I am not going to name them, just thought you should know.

She laughed for the first time the other day.  I say laugh only because it was something she had never done before and it seemed to be a laugh like sound accompanied by a smile.  I couldn’t be sure, but either way it was amazing. She did it a few times while I lifted her up into the sky and brought her back down, and it hasn’t happened since.

Anyways… wedding blog and a new family blog coming next.

EDIT:  Oh, totally forgot!  We went to a boobfeeding meeting thing at the hospital because we heard they weighed babies there.  Addison is 9lbs 9ozs!  Yup, she is a beast.  2028 Olympics here we come.
