6 weeks!

A quick weekly update...
DSC_0389c
At 5 weeks 6 days she weighed 8lbs 7oz. Up 3 whole pounds since birth! Doctor says she's playing catch up because she's gaining weight so fast. That is over 2oz a day since she was weighed at 3 weeks- about 1oz a day is considered 'normal'!
She's still in newborn clothes, but we've up'd her to size 1 diapers now because we ran out of newborns (they we're getting a little snug anyway!)
Her eyes are still looking blue, for now!
She is giving mommy a little more sleep at night, finally! (knock on wood!) And she still sleeps in her bassinet. 

I swear by the sleep sheep still and I'm considering getting the giraffe version for insurance :) She gets a little colicky/fussy at night (7pm) and it helps so much! I encourage any new or expecting parent to get one! 
as pictured below..
she smiles a lot more and has the cutest dimples
I'm looking forward to watching her grow and learn new things everyday!

LOVE that first outfit! Glad you're getting a little more sleep and have found something that helps with the evening hours. (They make a mini/travel version of that sleep sheep too if you haven't seen it already.)

She is so beautiful!
I read that late afternoon/evening is just a fussy time for babies so know that you're not alone! Lots of moms seem to go through it too!
Callyn weighed 10 lbs. 7 oz on Monday and still fits in a few newborn clothes-baby clothes are sized really silly sometimes!
