Sleeping Beauty

I just had to post this pic of her sleeping in her bassinet. She sleeps with her arms up in the air everytime she sleeps! It is so cute. That's how we know she is in a deep sleep. Even in our arms, if she falls asleep those arms will go straight in the air!

She is growing so well. She loves to eat and it shows! She weighs 8 lbs 8 oz! I cannot believe how much she has grown. She is already too big for her newborn onesies. I was so sad the day I realized that. I swear all of her weight is in her cheeks! She is so skinny everywhere else!

She is already showing her personality. She does not like to take naps. She sleeps fine during the night but if everyone is awake, SHE wants to be awake. It is so cute and so frustrating how she fights sleep. She is laid back (for now) and loves to watch everything around her. We read the Black and White book and she is so tuned in to it. She watches the puppies and they watch her. Marley cannot walk through the hallway without going into her room to check on her. If she is crying, he comes and gets one of us and whines until we follow him into her room and pick her up. He is so protective of her. Maizie on the other hand pretends that she does not exist. SHe climbs up on the boppy when Harper is feeding and tries to push her off.

It is amazing how quickly they change and time just races by. I am loving every minute of being her mom, no matter how exhausted I am. I still cannot believe that I am lucky enough to be a part of this little girls life.
