Week 4

Week 4 updates:
  1. Alex gave us her first real smile. She was laying in her swing and smiling either at herself (she has a mirror) or at the birds on her swing. Either way, it was adorable!
  2. Alex had a bit of digestive issues this week, but luckily she is back on track and feeling much better!
  3. She attended her first birthday party!
  4. She will be 1 month old this coming Sunday!!!
  5. Alex has gotten slightly better at baths, she only screams for part of the bath and not the whole thing.
  6. Alex visited the Aquarium for the first time. She did really well and slept for most of it. I think that we'll wait until she better understands what is going on before we take her again. 
  7. She still loves being held and swaddled when she sleeps but I don't see that changing any time soon.

3. She loves snuggling with Mom and Dad and wants to be held constantly.
4. She is eating like a champ and hopefully gaining weight.
5. Alex meet Uncle Thomas for the first time via Skype (Thomas is currently deployed).

2 Weeks Already!?!

I can't believe that Alex is already 2 weeks old! Holy Cow! Times flies even when it doesn't feel like it. Some of the highlights of her second week of life are:
1. She slept from Midnight to 5:00am one night (this is more a highlight for Mom)
2. She has gained her birth weight back!
3. Over the weekend, she meet her cousin Lucy who was in town for a visit. Lucy loved her and kept trying to put Alex's pacifier in her mouth. It was pretty cute!
4. She has tried to smile a couple of times which has been to cute!
5. Her coloring has improved and her skin is a lot less red.

I can't wait to see what the highlights of her third week will be! Its amazing how fast they change already!
