6 Weeks Old & Growing Stronger

I can't believe how quickly these weeks have flown by. Sure, sometimes time seemed to stand still, when Alex was a bit colicky in the wee hours of the night. However, we've come a long way, since those first days back from the hospital, when I felt as if I had no idea how to take care of my baby Alex.

Now, Alex is over 9 lbs, well over 2 lbs past her original birth weight (7 lbs & 4 ozs). She has been taking reflux medication, to try to address her nighttime fussiness.

What makes these days & nights so glorious, is that I get to stare at Alex to my heart's content. When she presses her cheeks against mine, & falls asleep in the warmth of our body heat, I couldn't be happier. These are the best days of my life.

My favorite part when Rick & Russell were babies was what I called snuffling behind their ears. That's when you kiss and smell that sweet baby smell at the spot on their neck & behind their ear :-). Enjoy the time when Alex is this small. It goes by way too fast!

Happy New Year to you, Alex & Eric
