5 Weeks

Praise God! Look at those gorgeous feet y'all have been praying for!


Love this outfit!




Hooray!


"Ugh! Mother! It is like being followed by the paparazzi!"


It is hard to believe Hope is 5 weeks old today . We took her to the pediatrician today for a rash that appeared which as it turns out is infant acne. She is up to 9lb 9 oz! Yay! She is doing great aside from the acne which the doctor assured us will resolve and the fact that she is sporting a baby mullet as she is losing the hair on top of her head just as her brothers did...minor issues for sure!

She is eating well and waking only once at night. She does seem to have an aversion to my eating dairy so no ice cream for mamma! I am happy to oblige for this sweet pea! (and I love ice cream). We are doing well and preparing for an emotional month. Isaac's birthday and Heaven days are approaching and Ben's birthday is the 27th! Just trying to keep it all in perspective and praise God for each day and the blessings in front of us!

She is doing great. Her feet look spotless.

She is beautiful and that last picture sums up how she feels about the camera in her face. :)

I'm sorry ice cream has to go onto the back burner until your done breast feeding. It worth it for a healthy happy little pumpkin.
