Celebrating One Week

Today, Baby Scout, you are one week old!

Sleeping Patterns: Baby Scout, you are a good sleeper. You like to sleep about an hour and a half at a time. One time during the night, you will sleep a whole three to four hours. Your two favorite places to sleep are in your "Rock and Play" and on someone's shoulder (daddy's or Aunt Shannon's shoulder seem to work nicely).

What You Like To Do: Baby Scout, you are a very happy girl. You love to hear mommy, daddy or Aunt Shannon talk to you. You like to listen to stories or songs (Daddy sings to you often). You have liked riding in the car both times and listening to your "Praise Baby" C.D. You like to lay on someone's knee and look around to see what is going on in the room.

New Things You Have Done this Week: Baby Scout, your favorite new thing to do is make faces. You smile, make o's with your lips, make sad faces, and yawn. You also rode in the stroller for the first time today. You seemed to like it. You tried your swing, but didn't care for it. You also got your first pair of basketball shoes and basketball as a present from the Carson family. We hope you will be as good a basketball player as Ashley.

Eating Patterns: Baby Scout, you are eating like a champ. You nurse every two to three hours for about thirty minutes. Mommy loves this time with you! You gained 5 ounces from Saturday to Monday. One time during the night, you will wait three to four hours.

Dislikes: Baby Scout, you hate being cold. This includes having your diaper changed, bath time, and changing clothes. Other than that, you are usually very content. You don't mind having a poopy diaper or being hungry for too long. You are a patient girl.

Diaper Size: Scout, you wear a Newborn size diaper.
Clothes Size: Scout, you wear Newborn size clothes. We are going to have to go buy you some more newborn clothes because mommy never imagined you would be so small. We are changing sleepers quite often and only put on real clothes for visitors.

Eye Color: Scout, right now, your eyes are blue. I wonder if they will stay that way?

Mommy and Daddy are so totally in love with you!
You have brought us so much joy over the past week!
I don't think we could imagine life without you now!
You are a special girl!
