this is one of my favorite videos of arden from her first days in the world.

she is only a little over one week old, and ‘grandfather’ ernie is holding and having a conversation with her.  at this point, none of her hair had fallen out, so you can still see her beautiful dark hairline.  (the hair that fell out is now growing back in a lighter brown shade…and quickly, thank goodness- some of you heard how i feared i had rubbed it all off during a spongebath!)  she shows off her mastery of hiccups (of which a performance is still a daily occurence) and also does her elvis lip ‘trick’ about half-way thru this video.

i cannot believe how much she has grown and changed already….where did my little newborn baby go?
