6 Weeks Old

We had a great week! Wade found a new job (Praise the Lord!), and we had some special family bonding.

We took Capri to get some pictures taken at PicturePeople in the mall. It took us about three hours to get the good shots because we spent most of our time there rocking, bouncing, nursing, pooping, crying, sleeping ect... BUT we got some good ones! I love them so much! You can check them out on the website
HERE.

Here are a few of them....








We went and saw the midwife today, and everything looks good with mommy and baby!

I thought I would share some updates with what Capri is doing now....

  • She is "talking" all the time. She is gooing, and gawing, and making the most adorable noises. She likes to talk the most to Daddy when he is making funny noises at her.
  • She smiles all the time, and most of her awake time is filled with smiles. She really responds to things we say, and looks like she wants to laugh! I have the best time with her in the morning when she wakes up. She is always so happy, alert and just loves to lay next to us and talk!
  • She has just started to "track" us. If we have locked eyes with her, she will follow our voice with her little eyes, its adorable!
  • She sleeps through the night by only waking up to nurse and falling back to sleep. I have gotten better at sleeping through her feedings, and so we are all getting good sleep! The only sleep problems come during the day when she is not sleeping next to me. However, she is getting used to the sling and that is helping me get lots of stuff done.
We weighed her this morning and she weighs 9 and a half pounds! She is still a little one, but growing quite nicely. The only weird thing is that she measured at her birth height... 21 and a half inches! Not sure how that happened because I KNOW she is longer. I guess its just the difference in people measuring her? I don't know. My midwife seemed just as confused as I was. So the update- she is 9 and a half pounds and REALLY long (I just don't know how long!)

We also took her to the chiropractor and got her adjusted and it did wonders in helping with her gas and fussy times!

Oh, and it WAS our 6 week check up... and you all know what that means.... wish me luck!

oooh the pictures are so adorable! She is so precious! I'm so glad you put them up.

I'm so glad you and Capri checked out A O.K with your midwife appt. today. I can't believe how much bigger she is now.

I'm glad the two of you are doing well. Loves and hugs to you and your little family!

By the way, I don't know if I've told you but I love you with the dark hair!

Those pictures are just too darling! And that ALWAYS happens when measuring babies! They will be shorter the next week and so forth- just how they can't measure well enough while they're a squirmy baby!

First of all, Love your dark hair!
These pics are just too cute for words. I would be so confused as to what to pick cause they are all adorable. LOVE the blue and brown design on your blog...It is so inviting.

OK, thanks for clearing that up, Mimi. When I first added your sight to my blogroll, you had light hair, and your face wasn't close up in the picture. So, when you changed the look of your site, and put up the new picture. I thought I might be losing it. Glad I'm in the right place.
The pictures are so adorable, and the things you write make me miss having a baby! My oldest daughter had very dark hair like Capri, and so the picutes leave me nostalgic. As far as her weight...you are lucky, girl! My last one was born weighing 9 lbs. 10 oz. She never looked like a newborn. Enjoy your little peanut.

Capri is precious!
