6 Weeks

Baby E is 6 weeks old today. It is a bittersweet day because it's the last day of Dh's paternity leave. Tomorrow it's back to the grind for him. We are going to miss him very much! He works almost until Baby E's bedtime! Fortunately he is able to come home sometimes for lunch, and only works 4 days a week, so hopefully she won't forget who he is! Ha ha

I have to admit though, I'm kind of excited to officially start as a stay-at-home mom. I'm looking forward to getting into a steady routine with Baby E (I have been trying, but someone (Dh) kept wanting to jaunt around all the time!) And I'm really looking forward to having a cleaner house!

Baby E is Very MAD Daddy is Going Back to Work

As proof that God hears and answers prayers, Baby E has been sleeping 6-7 hours at a stretch at night. She goes down around 9, sleeps until 3 or 4, and then after an early morning meal, sleeps for 3-4 more hours!! And makes her momma sooooo happy! She is getting better at napping and doesn't fight it so much anymore. And better sleep means happy baby!

That smile was hard to capture! She has been smiling at me for about 2 weeks now, and finally FINALLY started smiling at Dh this past week! I'm so glad; I was really hoping she would start smiling before he went back to work. At first I was lucky if I got a smile a day, but she is starting to bust 'em out a lot more often, and I LOVE it!!!!

I LOVE that sad look!! Lily does that too but we have not been able to capture it on film yet. We call it the saddest look in the world!

Good luck getting into your routine :)
