Charleigh 6 1/2 weeks

Charleigh started smiling today.  She only did it a few times, but it's a start! She smiles in her sleep ALL THE TIME, but wouldn't ever really connect with a smile while awake.  She did it twice and then I got the camera and she was mesmerized by that so she wouldn't smile anymore for me.  But then she did again later in the day but I didn't have the camera.

She is doing so well...even though she is sick. I am taking her to the doctor tomorrow because she just isn't feeling well and is having difficulty breathing because she is so congested.  Hopefully they'll have some good news for us though...both Jackson and Creighton had RSV and that is NO fun.  I hope it's just minor.

I can't believe how much she is growing.  I still only have a few outfits that are small enough to fit her, but she is finally starting to fill them out...at least a little:) I have so many cute clothes that I can't wait for her to grow into!  When we had her weighed just before Thanksgiving she was 7 pounds 5 ounces. Over Thanksgiving break we weighed her on a "big people" scale by holding her with us and then not, and she was right at 9 pounds.  So hopefully tomorrow she'll be even more!  I love hearing their weights! It's something so fun and exciting that changes so fast over the first few months.  She is definitely getting longer too.  She is still a stick but is starting to have tiny rolls on her arms and legs...and they are SO adorable.

Her hair is still wild as ever.  It gets REALLY fluffy after bathtime...which she LOVES the bath! And then within a few days it's sticking out and right and left in every which direction!

Her eyes are doing much better and have stopped gooping.  That is a blessing for all of us.  I know she hated having the tear duct massaged...probably as much as I didn't enjoy doing it.

She is the best and most laid back baby in all the world. I just am in LOVE with her. I missed her so much while I was gone for 33 hours this weekend.  I couldn't stop kissing her and holding her when I got back.  She seemed to be glad to have her momma back too! :)

She has the sweetest little voice and I am loving hearing her cooing noises that come and go. I can tell she's gonna be a talker...like her big sister! Whew...bring it on!

Precious Baby Charleigh!
