Quick Update

Even with all the drama of the weekend... Caroline is still, apparently, getting enough to eat. As of yesterday her weight was up to 7 pounds, 9 ounces, just an ounce off her birth weight!

She is also a pooping machine... my goodness.

And... we know that supposedly it doesn't happen... but honest to goodness... she smiles! When slowly waking from a nap, usually, she rotates through facial expressions and smiles a lot, and sometimes... it seems... she laughs. Katherine and I watched her do this repeatedly yesterday and it cracked us up every time.

Daddy is enjoying some quiet alert time with her right now. These are special moments.

I have a follow-up appointment with an o.b. on Friday and Caroline has her first appt with her pediatrician... here's hoping I found a good one! Hopefully this outing will be less dramatic than the first!

I'll start practicing with the sling tomorrow. And we'll finally stamp out Caroline's footprints tomorrow. She has BIG feet- like her mommy!

She has lots to smile about, with all of you giving her so much good care and love! -:)

Don't let anyone tell you that your bundle of grace doesn't smile. She certainly does. And, she has so much to smile about: she is God's precious child loved beyond what she can imagine and showered with abundance. And, it doesn't hurt to have two parents who are crazy for her!

I agree that she is smiling! And the smiles will just become more abundant and joy-filled as she grows!

I met a Philipina woman one time who said that in the Philippines, when babies do that they say "oh, look, she's dancing with her angels!"

So much nicer than someone scoffing and saying "it's just GAS...."
