9 weeks

Caroline turned 2 months old on Friday and is 9 weeks today! The time keeps getting faster and faster and the days fly by! Happy 9 weeks sweet, sweet girl - we love you SO much!

Here are some memories from week nine:
  • You have had the best week of your life this past week, hands down! Every day was a good day! You ate well, you slept well and you screamed much, much less. We are THRILLED! You have always been a joy, but this past week has been super duper joyous with a newborn that doesn't scream several hours a day. We are praying we're over the hump. Colic, Colic go away.....
  • You've learned to cope better with your tummy issues - we're still taking Zantac once a day and probiotics every day.
  • You and Mommy started jogging this week - yay!! We hope to keep it up! And our friends Amanda and sweet Mr. Archer (3 weeks old) have started joining us on walks!
  • you're now nursing up to 15 minutes on each side - sometimes more, sometimes less, but for several weeks it was just a struggle to get you to 8-10 minutes
  • Since you're eating better, you're still sleeping like a ROCK STAR! You've slept over 8 hours and up to 10 hours every night this past week .... you go girl:)
  • you like to play on your play mat and kick at some of the hanging toys
  • your cooing and talking has increased
  • on our two ventures out this week you were alert and awake for most of one without crying and slept through the other one - seems like you've learned we are constantly on the go and you're dealing with it!
  • you've been to the splash pad and pool twice now and have slept through each visit while your big sister squealed and played with delight
  • you've discovered you have a tongue
  • we took the pink ribbon down today - bittersweet!
A little sister love ...

More sisterly love after a photo shoot - Caroline needed some comforting and CE is always there to lend a hand - sweet sisters!

May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you. May the Lord show you his favor and give you his peace.

~ Numbers 6:24-26
