Mercedes is turning out to be a pretty good little sleeper, which Mommy is extremely grateful for. With three kids now, naptime is non-existent for Mom.
These were some of her first little hospital pictures, taken right after her bath. She has a perfectly round little head, no swelling in her face, just one little stork bite between her eyebrows that turns bright red when she cries (i.e. when she isn't wearing anything or if you use cold diaper wipes on her rear end). She is just a perfect little angel.
As you can see she doesn't have much hair, but most of what she does have is in the back and it is very dark. However, her eyelashes and eyebrows are light, so we will see what time does to her coloring: dark like Avrianna or blond like Talmage?
My brother made a comment as he was holding her in the hospital that she smelled like the temple, meaning clean and pure. I thought that it was an interesting comment, but very appropriate since her perfect little spirit is completely clean and pure. We feel very lucky to have one of Heavenly Father's little choice spirits added to our clan.
