9 weeks

This cutie is 9 weeks old today.  Man, time flies.  She is sweet as pie and adores her big sister.  She smiles all the time, especially when Sissy is singing to her.

Here's the customary info that probably no one is interested in but me.

Diaper - Size 1 diaper, but will be moving up soon.

Weight - Was 10 pounds and 4 ounces on 9-28. That was the last time we officially checked. I need to weigh her at home just to see what she is now.  We don't go back to the Dr. until Dec. 1.

Clothes - Size 0-3 and some just 3 months.

Activities - Smiling all the time.  We love seeing those 2 dimples and those bright blue eyes.

Sleeping - She still gets up about once a night but I can handle that.  Big Sister didn't completely sleep through the night (which I call sleeping 7-9 hours, not what the 'experts' say of 5 hours).  She still naps a lot during the day but is staying more awake more often.  She goes down for the night between 9 and 10 pm on her own, in her crib.  She usually wakes up for the day around 6 or 6:30.  Then falls asleep usually on the way to the sitter's.

Nothing else really of note.  She usually likes bath time but only if Sissy is there to help.  I gave her a bath last night and Big Sister was not there to help and she cried through the whole thing!

Baby Sister is also an extremely gassy baby.  Luckily, she passes it well. hehe.  We give her gas drops at least 1-3 times a day and that seems to help.

Ok, I think that's enough for today.  My babies are getting so big. Big Sister's 5th birthday party is already scheduled and is only less than 3 months away. Wow.  Next year, kindergarten. The next year, college.
