Ellie at 6 weeks

Ellie is 6 weeks old. Can you believe that? During the day she still wants to be held pretty much all the time. We've tried the swing, the playmat, bouncyseat and Bumbo. Each works for a little while but then she wants that human contact again. I'm learning the embrace the connectiveness. I keep reminding myself that in a blink of an eye she'll be 8 years old and we'll be fighting over what clothes I feel are appropriate to wear to school.

Bennet and Scout are still enthralled with her. Scout more so than B. Bennet and Scout have started to play 'Baby'. Bennet is the baby and Scout is the mom. They like to play in the crib and on the changing table. I'm up for anything that keeps them from whining.

She still has a head full of hair and dark brown eyes. I've been secretly wishing for some brown eyes to match Nick's. The more she grows the more I think she looks like Scout.

Last night she slept from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. That's 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep people!! Either I slept through her normal 2 a.m. feeding or she was giving her Mom some much needed dreamtime. I'll take it!!!
If I had my old job I would have been back at work yesterday. I can't really imagine that. I am looking for new employment but also loving the ability to spend more time with Ellie and the older girls. I keep saying it but it's so true- Time goes by too fast!!

She is such a little doll! I do think she looks a lot like Scout, but I see some B in there, too.

Lily is like that - not wanting to be put down for very long. As she's gotten older, it's gotten a bit better, though, so take heart!
