Psalm 127:3-5

Behold children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, so are the children of one's youth.
How blessed are those whose quiver is full of them

6 week update

At her 6 week appointment yesterday our sweet girl weighed in at 9 pounds 12 ounces!! That is a 2 pound 4 ounce gain since birth... Good job "Pay Pay"!

That would be another piece of 6 week info... She is lovingly referred to as "Pay Pay" by all members of the family!

She is sleeping from about 11:00 pm - 6:00 am !!!!!! That is her own little schedule she has fallen into and I am very pleased with that. She really sleeps most of the late evening too but I don't officially put her in her bed until her last feeding at around 11:00. She is sleeping next to our bed in her little attached cosleeper and it seems to be a really good situation for her and us. I plan to keep her there until she starts pulling up in bed which usually seems to be around 6-7 months for our babies.

She smiles a ton and LOVES her sisters and brothers and seems to know she has a special connection to them. She "talks" so much making all kinds of sweet noises! I love it!!

She loves to be on her blanket on the grass and listen to the other children play. I lay her on a blanket on the grass every afternoon and she just pleasantly looks at the sky and turns her head back and forth listening to the MANY sounds of children playing.

She has such a precious little demeanor and never gets upset unless she is just starving. Just a generally pleasant baby. We are so in love with this little girl. She has brought so much joy to this house! We love you Patience Joy!
