Growing too Quickly

Hailey is now 6 weeks old and she is changing so much. With each day we can see more development from her and continue to thank the Lord for her health. She is now taking a bottle once a day and daddy loves the opportunity to feed her. Even though there are times it seems like a struggle to get her to take the whole bottle without falling asleep, other than that she is doing great with bottle feeding. She is really starting to notice everyone voice and she loves to stare at you and smile. She is already lifting her head off our shoulder or chest. She went to the doctor yesterday and she has gained two pounds. She weighs 7lbs and 7ounces and is 22 inches long. Even Dr. Paula commented that she is going to be long and skinny....just like her daddy. She is in the 5th percentile for weight, and her length is in the 95th percentile, but is still very healthy and gaining weight. I still can't believe that it has been six weeks since she was born, it truly goes to show that time flies by so quickly. Mommy still loves being at home with her and we enjoy reading books and talking to each other. Even though she is not always taking many naps during the day, I still find time to get things done around the house. She still sleeps between 2-5 hours at night and on the occasion I get her to sleep 5 hours, I still get up to check on her to make sure she is okay. But she is really doing great! We continue to thank God daily for such a miracle of life and we pray that will be able to raise her in the way of the Lord. Thank you to everyone who keeps her in your prayers and for all the encouraging phone calls and conversations.

Well Hailey is over a month old. I apologize for not updating the blog since week 1. I guess you can say we have been pretty busy. The highlights of the last few weeks have been visits from lots of family members including all the Danielson's over Memorial Day weekend. Hailey was very well behaved and we had lots of fun. We also got to spend lots of time with Aunt Carrie, and cousins Danny and Mia. We have really enjoyed this last month with Hailey and she is such a miracle. We love you all.
