Hailey 6 Week Update

Hailey will be 6 weeks tomorrow!  That went crazy fast! We are finally settling in to a "routine", as much as there can be a routine with 4 active kids and life on the go.  She is a pretty awesome baby. If she is crying she is probably poopy. She absolutely loves her swing and staring at the fish above her. She is learning to love her play mat. She is happy at bath time. She has no nap schedule what so ever, but naps any where from 45 minutes to 3.5 hours at a time. She eats every 2-3.5 hours. In the past week she has started going longer which is nice. For the first five weeks she was eating almost every 2 hours. It was a bit much. None of the other girls ever ate that often. At night she nurses around 10:30pm and then wakes up at 3 and 6ish to nurse again. She is sleeping on her own now in our room...for weeks she slept on our arms...I know I know, don't lecture me. Her sisters absolutely adore her.  She smiles often now and has a big dimple in her right cheek.  It is pretty adorable.  She seems like she might be a thumbsucker one she can find her thumb and get the hang of it. I don't know how we ended up with four thumbsuckers!  She's not a fan of being swaddled. None of our girls were.  When she is about to get upset or cry she pants like a puppy and starts flailing her arms.  It is pretty cute.  She is growing up faster than I imagined. And I love her more than I thought possible.
