6 weeks old this week......

Well Miss Katelyn will turn 6 weeks old on Wednesday this week. My how time flies. I have 3 more weeks of maternity leave left. Booo! Not looking forward to having to leave her but I know it is inevitable. I am hoping since my job is so flexible I will still get to spend lots of time with her. Katelyn is a great baby. The only time she cries is when she is hungry or has a dirty diaper. I hear not all babies are like that. She is now sleeping 4 hours at a time at night now, so that is much better. I am contemplating moving her to her crib very soon. She doesn't really sleep that well in her bassinet anymore but her crib seems so far away even though it is just one room over. Maybe I will move her before I go back to work. She has started smiling at us this week. Not just when she has gas, but actually smiles when we are talking to her. I just love it! We don't go back to Dr. Yap until 8 weeks so I have no idea how much she weighs but she seems to be filling out. She can no longer wear the onesies she was wearing when she came home from the hospital. It really does go by fast.

Cousins...Hayden and Katelyn

Well Hayden has turned out to be quite the big cousin for Katelyn. He wasn't too sure about her at first and wanted nothing to do with her. Sure, he still does the occasional "I don't want baby to go with us today," but for the most part he thinks she is pretty cool. Whenever she cries, he runs up to her, gives her a hug and says "It's alright, I'm here." It is soo cute Katelyn is 4 weeks old this week so I thought I would post some pics of her and her big cousin, Hayden. Hayden calls her Baby Tatewyn. Love it!

2 Week Checkup

Katelyn had her 2 week check up with Dr. Yap today. She is up to 8 lbs and 2 ounces. He said she was perfect. (we already knew that). He said all of her measurements are average but her height is above average. The appointment went great except for the mean lady in the lab that took blood from her foot. I would hate to have to do that job. We went and visited my work today as well as my mom's work. Katelyn got passed around but didn't seem to mind it to much. It is nice to be able to get out of the house now. It takes longer than it used to to get ready but once we are out, everything is good. She is sleeping in 3 hour intervals at night now so Mommy is feeling much better. We are having so much fun with her and I know it will keep getting better.
