precious


We are enjoying Meadow so much. Peanut and Finley can't keep their lips and hands off of her. I hope the love lasts.

I was a little nervous about her sleeping patterns. The first night home she did great, she slept all day and slept 6 hours before getting up the eat in the night. The next night wasn't so good, she was up from 10 pm to 5 am-ugh it was AWFUL. I was wondering what I signed up for. The third night was the same, I was driving around the neighborhood at 2am (It is kinda interesting to see who is awake at that time) and that still didn't put her to sleep. Since then it has been a lot better, she has returned to her 6-7 hour stints of sleep-eating-and then going back to sleep for another 3-4 hours. I can handle that. I couldn't handle the up all night.

She had her two week appointment today her weight is up to 8 lbs. 13 oz and she is grown 1 1/2 inches (21 1/2 in) I am so HAPPY she is healthy and growing.

What beautiful photos. Man she looks like her siblings! (Of course she does, right? It's just that my first two don't look anything alike and my third seems to be the missing link between them.) Gorgeous. Sorry about the awful nights - that's no fun.

Getting things all figured out again is quite the challenge. Some nights I get great sleep, but I have not been lucky enough for more than 5 hrs in a row yet (and those are rare). Good luck!

I hope she gets her nights figured out, that is SO rough! She is adorable though.

She is beautiful! I remember when I had Amy & Austin I kind of forgot how hard it was to be up every 1 1/2 all night long! P.S. We are the ones that are up at 2:00 in the morning : ) So if you are driving around at that time you can come & say hi!
