Over MLK weekend, 2 of my very best friends came to visit from Auburn. They were willing to use their vacation time and money to be with me and my family. Our long weekend together started off as any good girl time should, talking and catching up until 2 am (that's 4 am their time, whew they love me).
One night, we went childless to my favorite Thai restaurant for them to try and we all got yummy dishes. It was great to talk, encourage, and laugh with these sweet souls.
My children are blessed to have 5 great grandparents, plus 2 great great grandmas, still here with us.
Again, great times with good people...couldn't ask for much more!

6 week photo (2 weeks ago)
We like each other, most of the time
Go Huskies! Yes, our children are marked by where their Daddy was in school during their birth. Jude is a HUGE Auburn fan and we'll see if Sadie gives 2 hoots about the Dawgs. She looks good in purple though. :)
Um, she did not care for the hat portion of this outfit.
Sweet girl still loves bath time, something her brother despised for a while. I don't think my 2 children could be much different at this stage of the game. She already seems a lot more laid back. Both are good eaters and sleepers, but she is a little more go with the flow. I guess 2nd borns kind of have to be.
This picture cracks me up. Her sweet chubby cheeks hamming it up. We went for her 6 week check up when she was 7 weeks and 2 days old. We got a good report that she looks good. Here are her stats:
Length: 22 in. 46%
Weight: 11 lb 11.5 oz 76%
Head Circumference: 15 cm ?%
It's hard to believe she has already grown 2 inches and gained 3 lbs in only 7 weeks. Her newborn clothes are officially put away and she is in 0-3 months. We started her on cloth diapers this week too. As far as her schedule goes, at this time, she wakes up between 7:30- 8:00 am. She goes about every 2.5-3.5 hours through out the day (she tends to get more frequently in the morning and not as frequently in evening). She stays awake about an hour to 1.5 hours per cycle and then sleeps 1.5-2 hours at a time. She does prefer to be swaddled, but with 2 arm out because she likes to lick/such on her fingers. She does not prefer a bappy like big brother. She will suck on one, but only for a bit. She tends to get fussy in the late evening/early night time. She usually is down by 10:30 pm. She has been down as early as 9:30 but as late as 11:30 pm due to her fussiness. This has been a little hard for me because she is so well scheduled during the day, but after 6 pm, there is no schedule for her. If she doses off for a catnap, it could be for 2 minutes or 20.
This is definitely different than Jude. He was pretty text book and kept to his schedule through the whole day. I'm not concerned about it because I know she is still so tiny and she's sleeping well at night. She consistently goes at least 5 hours at night and has even thrown in a few nights of 10 pm-5 am. (Any tips on how to help with a bed time routine, I'm open.)
Oh how the babes are growing...I can't believe Eli will celebrate his 1st birthday in less than 2 weeks and Jude will be 3 before I know it....
