A few six week smiles from our little girl.

 This one I call the "Mike face." It's all in the eyebrows.
Lexie is weighing in at 10.4 lbs now.
She's starting to fill in with some rolls on her arms and thighs. She's figuring the sleeping thing out and will usually sleep from 11 to anywhere between 4 and 6 a.m. Hurray!
She still won't take a pacifier and prefers a good bounce over a sway any day. We chalk that one up to me teaching boot camp for so long. She's used to the bounce of jumping jacks and such. We did break down and spend WAY too much money (about double what you pay in the states) on a swing that sways both directions. But she will sit in that making it worth it.

She's still having some tummy issues causing her to cry for a few hours each night and at most feedings. We are working through it and praying she feels better. The past two weeks we've been struggling with B. movements, she'll go 3 days, then 2 and this last time 5 days before having one. We're dealing with issues that we've never dealt with. The silver lining is that Mike is here so much more than he could when we had the boys. So we are doing this together and it makes a ton of difference having a team mate.

The smiles that are coming more often melt my heart and more than make up for the screaming times. We are also having more moments when she is happy and hanging out. The boys love these moments and take the time to talk to her and love on her.
Owen still tells me several times a day, "My baby is cute."
Hugs, A
