Time is flying by.....

Meredith has already changed so much since the day she was born just a mere six weeks ago! She loves to be held (especially by her Daddy) and is very mesmerized by her big brother! She loves watching him move around the room and receives hundreds of kisses and hugs from him everyday. She is just starting smile and makes the cutest little laughing sound in her sleep. She hates being put in her car seat but falls asleep before we can even back out of the driveway. She loves to sleep on her tummy which is a major no-no in the parenting circle but as long as I am awake I let her. She really enjoys her baths and the baby massages I give her. I see many mother-daughter spa trips in our future! She's definitely a Daddy's girl. Any time she is upset and I can't console her, Josh will take her and it's like someone turned off the switch. She instantly stops crying and places her little head on his comforting shoulder. If she's anything like Jonah she's already figured out how to wrap herself around his little finger. But all I know is if she gets a certain pair of shoes with a signature red sole before I do we will have a major problem (hint* hint* honey)! I guess you can say she is also a Mommy's girl. She goes with me everywhere and has already enjoyed shopping trips, spa trips, and lunch at a tea room. I'm really enjoying having a daughter and watching Jonah and Meredith together brings a sense of peace and serenity to my crazy and hectic days!

she just gets cuter and cuter!!

hey, i believe there is nothing wrong with laying her on her tummy. all 3 of my kids slept on their tummies. the aap changes their mind on what is safest like every 10 years. i figure if they can't make up their mind, i'll do what feels right for us and trust my own motherly instincts, i'm not going to let some association tell me.. as long as they are on a mattress with a tight-fitted sheet and no heavy blankets, they'll be fine. my kids had reflux and if they were on their backs, they would choke on their spitup. and plus, i think babies just sleep better on their tummies. they have more of a secure feeling that way. i totally believe that is why my kids slept through the night starting at 6 weeks(and i'm talking 8 hours straight if not more!)

ok, so i'm done with my infant sleep opinion rant:) haha.

Okay, have to ask... Where did you get the hat? It's adorable.
