6 and 7 Weeks Old

Life is moving fast these days. I feel like we get up in the morning and before I know it, the day is almost over. The past 7 (almost 8) weeks have just flown by! Chloe is such a sweet little cupcake. She is starting to smile, coo and become a little more interactive. Seeing her smile when she first wakes up is one of my favorite things, and a great way to start the day.

She is content and calm most of the time. She does really likes to be held and prefers it to anything else right now, but is happy in any of our baby carrying devices, my personal favorite is the Balboa Baby sling. Best thing ever.

I don't want to get too cocky about the sleeping thing, because this could all change next week, but Chloe is sleeping about 7-8 hours at night. Its been wonderful. She has her last feeding somewhere between 10pm and midnight, and then its lights out until morning. During the day she eats about every 2.5-3 hours, is awake for a bit and then crashes for a nap. We usually have one really good and intense crying spell around 5 or 6pm. Girlfriend has some lungs. You don't hear them often, but when you do, oh my.

She hasn't started losing any hair yet, and her hair is still full and crazy as ever. We've noticed it is getting lighter, though you won't be able to tell in pictures. And everyone asks me what color her eyes are. They are a very gray blue. When she looks into the light they are quite blue. So only time will tell, but at least for now they are looking like they may be blue like Kennedy and Greg's.

Love her little cheeks. And she sleeps well in her baby straight jacket. 
Playtime on the Farm Mat. Kennedy loved this, and I am hoping Chloe does as well.
