More Michelle

My last week in Florida- sigh! The weather has been practically perfect,in the high seventies or eighties, low humidity. This is definitely the time of year to visit here!

Shannon has gotten to know her new niece, who obviously feels very comfortable with her auntie.

Even in the short time I've been here,I can see changes. She barely fits into newborn clothes anymore. She is alert for longer periods of time, and is doing better at sleeping at night and being awake during the day. Not perfect mind you, just better.

I love watching her with her daddy. He is really good with her, I've no doubt he will be a wonderful father.

They were gifted with a swing by a friend whose child has outgrown it. It really does seem to help her calm down at times, and will be a godsend when the parents are on their own.

This is one of the best pictures I've gotten of her yet, looking over her mother's shoulder. Look at those gorgeous eyes!

This weekend will be the only 'touristy' time we have here. Yesterday was Sean's birthday,today is Sean and Marly's anniversary, and tomorrow they are having a crowd of friends over to celebrate and see the baby. Sunday were are going to the Sunken Garden in St. Petersburg, and some winery where they make wine out of citrus and other fruits- everything but grapes, from what I am told. Hopefully I will get some good pictures.

Tuesday Shannon and I fly home to snow, and Wednesday I am back at work. Where did all the time go??

Oh Beverly, she is adorable! although you're leaving soon...I have no doubt that you'll be increasing your trips to FL more often. Congratulations once again on being a grandmama!

Wonderful pictures! I agree: she doesn't have that 'newborn' look about her anymore. She is so much more aware and so ADORABLE!!!
Enjoy your last precious hours there, and have a safe trip home.
