But thankfully, each day is a new one, so we tried again this morning with much happier results:
Today was Harriet's six week check up and she did marvelously. Can I get into proud mother mode and say that she gained 3.5 lbs in six weeks? Woo-hoo! Now she's a chunky monkey at 9lbs 9 oz. (It makes all of the midnight feedings worth it.) Harriet's latest tricks are liking her bath, staying awake for all of church (pleasantly, I might add), growing out of her newborn-sized clothes, and wearing cloth diapers like a pro. She isn't too fond of the bouncy chair since she likes to sit upright as much as possible in her Boppy pillow throne. And she definitely likes to have her parents around, which makes it hard to part company even for an afternoon nap. This is where the Sleepy Wrap is an absolute God-send. And I mean that.
