A Little Narcissist?

Aife's personality is growing exponentially with each passing day. She has endless things to say (just not in English yet), and can't get enough of her feet. I loooove that she has found her feet! Anyways, it has recently come to my attention that she loves seeing pictures of herself. When she sees herself on my computer, or in the mirror she goes berserk. She starts squealing with delight and laughing, and of course wiggling. It is one of the funniest things EVER! If she sees a picture of another baby she gets this look of boredom, and turns her attention elsewhere. Sometimes I even get this look of "how could you be looking at another baby". Followed by a pouty face that could melt icebergs. (I have been getting way way way too mushy for my own good. Must go listen in on conversations about cars, and building things out of metal... or other similarly non-mushy activities...) 
I'm not really serious about the whole narcissism thing. I think it is pretty much one of the coolest things that she recognizes herself. She has finally reached that point when she is actually growing and changing sooo rapidly. I didn't believe anyone when they told me that they grow up so fast, but I am buying what they're selling now. 

This is my favorite shot of her; trying to steal water from my cup.
And I have to admit, if I were her I would also love pictures of myself.


  1. WHAHAHAHA! Love that baby. Obviously her baby face is the only one worth looking at!

    Aife is 4.5 months now, right? POW! She's a teenager.
    I'm glad you're starting to believe the hype about rapidly growing and learning babes. It's an exponential thing, you know? Tiny tiny changes at first, and now...well, now the fun really starts.

    Also--sooo rad that she likes sippy cups! You'll never have to wean her off the bottle now--just the boob!

  2. Seriously, when I was a baby, my mom made me an album of 3x5 pictures of myself because apparently all I wanted to do was stare at my beauty and babble about how wonderful I was.

    Really. I still have the album lol.
