Melana turned six weeks yesterday! I can't believe how fast time has flown by. Sometimes I can't believe we have a baby but then other times it seems like she has been her forever 'cause she fits in so well. She is a beautiful baby and is growing by leaps and bounds.
At birth she weighed 6 pounds 9 ounces and was 20 1/2 inches long. At her one month check up she was 9 pounds 6 ounces and 23 inches long! She was so long and skinny at birth and still is, but now she has a little more meat on her spindly legs and arms and her little face is filling in nicely. I love her little face. She is taking about 4 ounces per feeding and has been following our Baby Wise schedule beautifully.
She now follows objects and faces with her eyes and by moving her head and turns when she hears mine or Darian's voice. She loves her swing and watches the little fish mobile on it go round and round. She just started smiling last week and has even started to coo when she smiles. I swear she is the cutest baby EVER!
