3 Week Updates

Hard to believe my little lady is now 3 weeks old!!!  She is already growing just before my eyes!  I look back at the pics from her gotcha day and are already beginning to see changes in her.  Its crazy how fast time is going by.  Everyone tells me to enjoy this time and enjoy her while she's young and small.  I have tried many, many times to remind myself of that.  I am constantly snapping pics of her (setting up mini sessions and of course the everyday candids), taking mini video clips of her, documenting the things she does in her journal and just enjoying this time snuggling with her.  But its almost like I just can't get enough of her!  We're loving every minute!

Some Updates:

A] She is drinking 4oz every 2 1/5 hours or so.  Sometimes she will skip a bottle, especially when sleeping.
B] She is generally sleeping between 6 and 7 hours at night!  (thank you Lord!)  Some nights she will wake up for a bottle, but very rarely.
C] On Saturday night (1.22.11), she slept her in crib for the 1st time at night!  We had been placing her in there during the day to nap and to "play"... but she hadn't slept in there at night.  :)
D] She smiled at me (FOR REAL THIS TIME) when I made little faces at her!  She has smiled before, but everyone else says they were gas smiles.  Well, this time, there was NO mistaking... it was directed at me!  :)

Now... here is her "3 Week" picture!  We're so excited about her dress.  One of Richard's co-workers gave us this dress, the day before her big shower/celebration!  I was so thrilled, because we really didn't have anything cute for her to wear.  :)

And here she is with her new Bible!  We were so excited, because we hadn't gotten her a Bible yet... and Miss Patty gave her this Bible at her shower/celebration this past weekend!  Thank you Miss Patty - we love you!  

And here she is this morning wearing her new owl outfit!  A friend, Holly made this for her and gave it to her at the shower.  :)  My cousin Kevin and his wife, Jill gave her the adorable "Tooth Fairy" owl at Christmas!  LOVE!

Speaking of shower... we have TONS of pics to come from that.  So... be on the look out!

Until then... Brantley
