what we've learned in four weeks (and 18 photos)

What we’ve learned in four weeks:

that we have a passionate eater, who as of today weighs 8lbs. 13oz.
she loves her baths
is very happy in the morning, always flashing us a big gummy smile
is a big fan of her swing!
tolerates her bouncy seat for brief moments
does great on car rides, as long as she is asleep…
loves her paci
we have learned her fussy spell is between 8-9 pm every. night.
is very serious and quite often gives us “the brow”
eats every 2-3 hours
is a great nap taker, has one 4 hour stretch at night too!
she is going to have an outtie belly button, just like her brother
she is still wearing all size newborn clothing
and while she may keep us on our toes, she has filled a spot in our heart that we never knew was empty with her sweet spirit.
we simply can’t imagine this world without her in it.

Hi Tara, sorry to hear about your weim. I know exactly how you are feeling our Bella was sick two years ago and went through kidney failure and was in the vet hospital for a week and I was a mess during that time. She is much better now. I will keep your Weim in my thoughts and prayers. May you have peace in comfort today that all will work out. With Love Melissa and Bella
