5 Weeks - Lucy
Our girl is 5 weeks old now and changing so much every day. She is awake much more and really focusing in on things. Now we just await the much anticipated social smile! She's also SUPER chubby and I swear, she's well into the 9lb range though we'll see once we get her on a real scale. However, she's got little fat rolls on her legs and dimples on her elbows and you could just eat her up! Girl pukes like her sister before her so we are forced to carry around huge burp cloths and if things get any worse, I will just use one of our bedsheets! She is a little gassy, which caused some fussiness but a little gas medicine works wonders. Last night she slept for 4 hours and then after eating, another 3 hours. I know that can't last but it was GLORIOUS. Best sleep for the mama for at least 5 months. Thanks Lucy! Anyway, she is looking more and more like a baby and not a newborn and starting to show us who she is.
