She's Just So Happy!

I believe I have one of the happiest babies in the world, and boy that does make a mommy feel good! Since learning to smile, it is one of the main things Riley does. She seems to consistently wake up around 7:30am each morning. This is nice because it is just before Kevin walks out the door for work, so he can go in and get her out of her crib. Each morning we walk in, her big blue eyes look at us and this huge smile breaks out across her face. Ahhhhh.

She will be 8-weeks old this Friday - crazy! We have her 2-month peds appointment next Friday, February 6th. We'll see how much more weight she has gained! The good news is that her demand for feedings every 1-to-2 hours has subsided and she is back to every 2.5 to 3 hours during the day. She has had a consistent 5-hour stretch for the past few nights after initially putting her down as well ... now we just have to work on the rest of the night feedings! I am happy that at night I can now lie her down in her crib while she is still awake and she can put herself to sleep. I rub her back for a few minutes within her sight, then move out of sight and continue to rub her back, then leave the room altogether. It works like a charm!
We went shopping with Auntie Heather and little Hailey yesterday and celebrated our finds with a fashion show afterwards!

Other than that, nothing much more going on. I am battling a horrible cold and sore throat and go to the doctor tomorrow morning at 9am ... as long as I can make it through all this snow we've received! Don't worry - Riley will be babysat and will not be on the snowy, icy roads with me!
