The Many Faces Of Raelynn
In honor of it being one month since my adorable Raelynn was born, today's post is all about her. And the (mostly) cute faces she makes. Some aren't so cute though. Let's take a look, shall we?
My husband aptly named this "Problem Face." It's so fitting too since all babies can do is cry when they need our help, or when they have a problem. Here is another shot...
Sleepy Yawn Face
When it starts, it looks an awful lot like "Problem Face." But this one has a happy ending. One that involves sleep for her, and if we're lucky, sleep for us too. Yay! Sleep!
Bath-Time Trauma Face
I was inclined to put this one into the "Problem Face" category but it's a bit different. For one, we KNOW what the problem is. She hates bath time. Maybe it's getting wet. Or perhaps the air feels cold to her. Or she doesn't like our stupid bath time songs. But this one wins its own category because of the deafening screams you lucky readers cannot hear while Xiaolong and I bathe her. She screams so loudly during her baths that if we were in America, I'd expect Child Protective Services to pay us a visit. But since we're in China, no one cares.
Post Bath-Time Trauma Face
This is the face she makes after we've dried her, dressed her and bundled her up after her bath trauma. She gets all quiet and sad-faced. But it never stays that way for long. Mommy feeds her right after, and that is her favorite activity.

The Thinker. Or Rather...The Pooper.
