"...Have faith in your dreams and someday,

your rainbow will come smiling through.

No matter how your heart is grieving,

if you keep on believing,

the dream that you wish will come true..."

An update...

It has been nearly a month since I have written in this space, and my only excuse is that I am busy. My DH is working quite a bit, which makes me primary care giver to the little lady, and full time maid. I am scared at the thought of what our house will look like when I go back to work next year!

Kaedence is GROWING! Just today, I packed up all her newborn outfits (*sniff *sniff ). They will be passed along to friends of ours (whose little girl was born 5 weeks premature, 2 weeks after we had Kaedence). Of course, I kept a few for sentimental reasons. She is settling into a routine, and is sleeping around 6 hours at night, at best. I am no longer pumping for her, so that means that I get a little more sleep at night. She started grinning a few weeks ago, and is cooing. She will tell you stories! She can pretty much hold her head up on her own, but we still have a hand at the ready, just in case she gets tired. She is really enjoying her play mat and loves anything that is hanging above her (mobiles, ceiling fans, etc). She had her 2 month needles 2 weeks ago, and she SCREAMED! Poor little thing! But at that appointment she weighed almost 9 pounds and was 21 1/2 inches long.

Here are a few pictures of the last few weeks! As you can see, it seems there is no limit to the number of facial expressions this child has!
