week 6...

Can'tbelieve she's 6 weeks old. That's such a milestone for a baby, although I'm not completely sure why. I think it's sort of the spot where they are no longer a newborn and officially an infant. It's also the age where someone decided that babies and moms were ready to be separated from each other so moms could go back to work - stupid person. I am so thankful to be able to stay home with her until August and not have to go back right away. I miss working and my kids (who are falling apart at the moment...), but I'm definately not ready for that!
She's really starting to change and grow. She can almost hold her head up already and she's sleeping for a good 6 hour stretch almost every night. She went to the doctor this week and she's doing great! She weighed exactly 10 pounds and was 22 inches long (75% for both). She had to get 5 shots and although she didn't like it at all she handled it like a champ!
Jackson only has 1 more week of school and then he is officially a 2nd grader! When did that happen!!!! It seems like just last week he was starting kindergarten, and not he's going to 2nd. Only 3 more years until he's a 5th grader!!! OMG - none of us are ready for that! Last week he had a field trip to the zoo and we took Elliette along with you can tell she really enjoyed herself!

Here is my current favorite outfit and a quick glimpse of a smile!
