Our growing girl

I'm taking a brief interruption from our delivery story to update you all on how that little girl is doing  :)  Never fear, I will finish it one day, I promise.  At this point, I think you're all more interested in what she's doing now than what happened 6 weeks ago anyways!  Can't say that I blame you.

6 weeks!!  Craziness.  I can't believe that she's already 6 weeks old.  On one side it feels like it couldn't possibly be that long ago, but it also feels like we've known her forever, and it's getting harder and harder to remember life without her here.  (Although sometimes in the crazy moments of adjusting to two, it feels awfully easy to remember life with one!) 

Well, here are her growth stats and some pictures along the way.

Day 1: 7 lbs. 3 ozs. 19 1/4 inches

Day 3: 6 lbs. 13 ozs.

1 week: 7 lbs. 6 ozs. 19 1/2 inches

3 weeks: 8 lbs. 11 ozs

Bath time is by far her favorite activity!
4 weeks
I love her sweet little folded hands in this one :)
5 weeks

 Far happier during tummy time than her brother ever was!

6 weeks: 10 lbs. 8 ozs., 22 inches long

She's doing so well, and has been such a wonderful addition to our family!  I love having pink all around our house now, having my own little "buddy" when Danny and Logan go to do fun things, and getting all those wonderful infant snuggles again.  She smiled at us for the first time this week.  Such a wonderful thing, especially for two very sleepy parents!  It's so nice to get some emotion other than screaming out of your newborn, and it's such a blessing for it to come around week 6, when this whole getting up at night thing is starting to get old.  She is SO much more awake and alert than Logan was, and so much stronger!  He was rather content to lie with his head on our shoulder until about 4 months old I think  :)  This little girl is far more interested in what is going on around her...which makes naps a little more interesting, but it's fun to see a little bit of her personality even now. 

And I'll share this last one with you....horrible picture, I know.  But just so you know her most frequent activity, and can know one of the most common parts of my life right now.  :)
