My baby girl is 7 weeks old today. Time sure is flying by fast. I read her 7 week milestones on It said that babies love rattles at 7 weeks, and to put one in their hand. I tried this and Tate LOVED it. Zach and I were cracking up b/c she was shaking it so hard. She is such a sweet baby. Also, she loves Baby Einstein videos. I'll have to post a pic. of her watching them. I will put her right up by the t.v., and she will watch these videos for hours. They are a life saver.

6 weeks old and my first pair of shoes!

Well, Tate is 6 weeks old! Can you believe it? I sure can't! I never thought I could love someone or anything as much as I love this babygirl. I'm so blessed to be able to stay home with her for 12 weeks, then go part-time. She has her first pair of shoes on in the pics. Her feet are so long and narrow, (like my feet),that the shoes don't fit too great. She still has a head full of dark brown hair. She isn't a fan of pacifiers. I've tried a ton of them, and the only one she likes is that stinking soothie one. I won't her to like the cute ones with designs on them. dang! =)Tate is sleeping 6 hours at night. Wonderful! I'll wake her up, feed her, then put her back down, and she will sleep another 3 or 4 hours. She is smiling and cooing at me. She still loves her swing so much. She sleeps in her crib every night, except for the nights that mommy falls asleep with her on the couch. shhh!! I cherish every moment with her, and am so blessed to be her mommy!

Spend the night party at Mee Mee and Popsee's house!

5 weeks!! Catching up...

So, my computer has been down for 3 weeks! I'm not even going to try and catch up, so I will post some random pics. Tate is 5 weeks old today, Friday, July 16. Her 1 mo. appt. went great. Her Mee Mee, my mom, went with us. What a big help! She got her first shot, Hep. B. She cried for a few seconds, and then acted like nothing happened. She is a trouper. She weighed 9 lbs and 4 oz. 75th percentile in height, and 50th percentile in weight!! Tate is nursing well. Every 3 hours during the day, and every 4 hours or more at night. Such a good and content baby! She smiles at me and other familiar faces. She has graduated to a size 1 diaper! Growing up too fast. So far she has had thrush and a blocked tear duct. I caught them quickly, so they healed quickly!! She sleeps in her own crib as of 3 weeks!!! She will sit in her swing and watch her baby "Praise Songs" video for hours. I'm loving being at home everyday with her. I really could get used to this. Sure do wish it was the 50s again, so I could stay home everyday! I love, love, love being a mommy! She is my best buddy, and all I think about. Sure do love her!
