Princess Emery is 5 weeks old!

Princess Emery,

Today you are five weeks old!! I wish I could slow time down just a little because it seems to be going entirely too fast! You are doing really well and growing so much. We were at the doctor's office today and there was a four day old baby boy in there. He made you look like a giant and I'm pretty sure you could have eaten him for lunch. ;o)

We have been implementing tummy time during the day some and I can safely say that you are not a big fan. You grunt, kick, and squirm and then you just get mad. You now have distinct cries and your mad cry is pretty much a screaming cry. You make the most pathetic face and put your lungs to good use. It's actually kinda cute, heck, everything you do is cute!

We had your reflux meds switched today because the Zan.tac just wasn't cutting it. I'm hoping this brings you some relief and that it bothers you no more! You are actually doing quite well w/the whole thing so I'm not too terribly worried. Baby Girl, you rock!

*What you're doing this week:
~ you will mimic whatever we do w/our tongue and mouth - it's quite entertaining
~ you follow our voices, you can be almost sound asleep and hear one of us and you'll whip that head right around
~ you are holding your head up really well, you would love to be able to just sit straight up, of course you're not there yet
~ not a fan of tummy time, but we'll get there

Love you Little Princess!

P.S. Jeff has strep, send prayers that the Prince and Princess don't get it (nor do I!)

***I am grateful for
1) 5 weeks!
2) medicine (Jeff is sick, Duchess is sick, Nana is sick... see a trend w/my family)
3) doctors that fit you in when you don't have an appointment
4) pharmacies, but the slow on in town does drive me nuts
5) cuddle time

Hey, add me to the sick list, too. Low grade fever last night (but thankfully gone this morning), sore throat, sinus drainage... It sucks.

But, HAPPY 5 WEEKS!!! I wish we were still there and I could hold her more! Love you!
