4 Weeks Old and She is Smiling :)



This is Maddy yesterday on the day she turned one month old. I was talking to her and she could not stop smiling. Now she does it almost every time we talk to her (as long as she has a full belly and a clean diaper :)

We are just loving on this little girl. She is so fun to have around - I think we will keep her :)
She has been so good so far. She pretty much cries only when she needs something. And the last two nights she has slept fro 5 1/2 - 6 hours straight! I am not really holding my breath waiting for this to stick. She is still pretty young. But it's still great to see it start. 

We are so happy that she is gaining weight and is as healthy as ever!  God has been so good to give us this sweet baby girl.

She is so precious Julie!! How wonderful to have a good baby! Mine were all great babies too, so I know how fun it is to have them around. What a beautiful smile and even better - what a great sleeper!! You are one lucky little momma! Enjoy every smile!! I wish I could give her a little squeeze myself!!
