7 weeks: Smile, darn ya, smile!

Well, we just had Ailsa's 6-week follow-up today (and mine too!) - she's 22 inches long and 9 lbs 10 oz... just a little bigger than her big brother was at this age.

I'm back down to my pre-preggers weight and almost shape (but with less muscle) (and 2 more inches to go on my waist) - I have no idea how I pulled that off. Must be the no sleep/no time to eat or even drink water diet.

The sleeping (ha ha! What is this "sleep" of which you speak? She's averaging 2.5 hours between wakes at night) is still a struggle, as is coping with the screaming, but each day we're getting a little bit more quiet alert/happy time.

Speaking of happy, perhaps you should watch this one with the sound off...

I'm holding up "ok" at best, especially the days when Vaughn is cranky too, but I just keep telling myself that this will get better. Sometimes I repeat that into my pillow, sometimes into a glass of wine...

Good thing she's cute.

Some fun pics:

Another great shot of my two little stinkers angels.

Ok, who gave my son a gun???

Her smile looks very much like her big brother's! Want to see more of that, and hope she catches on to this sleep thing real soon....
p.s. eat something - your mother worries!

Very cute smiles! I can feel you with the lack of sleep...Chase is going through a growth spurt and is up every 2 hours during the night to eat. After about 4 nights of 6 hours in a row (before the spurt), going back to 2 hours has been torture! Le sigh.
