you're three weeks old, wattsie!

My Wattsie, you are three weeks old today! It's so hard to believe that you'll be one month old on Jan. 1! Where has the time gone?

Your daddy and I say to ourselves every day that sometimes, it feels like you've always been with us, and other times, it is surprising to look over and see a newborn on our couch. We love you so much.

Very soon, we'll be going to Alabama for Christmas. We can't wait for you to meet the rest of your family!

You have sort of developed a little "pattern." You wake up around 8 a.m., nurse, I give you a bath, you stay awake until noon, eat, nap, eat, nap, eat, nap, and then you finally fall asleep around midnight. You usually stay awake from midnight until two a.m., and then you nurse again and fall fast asleep until 8 a.m. the next morning.

We took you to the pediatrician on Tuesday. You've been a little congested lately-- especially at night-- so we were a little concerned. Dr. Laney said your lungs were perfectly clear, and your congestion was all in your head. You're doing just fine!

You really like bath time. I give you a bath every morning, and it never seems to bother you at all. I love, love, love the way you smell after your bath. It is pure bliss!

On Tuesday night, you took your first bottle from Daddy. You loved it! I was a little concerned about you nursing after that, but you haven't batted an eye! We were so thankful!

We've taken you out in the car a couple times. The pediatrician gave us strict orders that you cannot go out in public until you are eight weeks old, so you just hang out in the car while Momma or Daddy runs in to the stores. You don't seem to mind at all. In fact, I think you like it. You sleep almost the whole time you are in your car seat.

Your favorite thing is eating. You could eat all day if we'd let you!

We cannot believe how much you are growing and changing every single day. You are a constant blessing to us, and no matter how our day is going, we can take one little look at you, and we are absolutely smitten. You have stolen our hearts. We love you, little girl. We can't wait to keep watching you grow!

With all my love,
Momma
