4 Weeks

My precious baby is 4 weeks old today and I'm so sad to realize my maternity leave is 1/2 over already! Time has flown by. In 4 weeks, I don't think Charlotte has changed too much. She's still a calm baby and has these moments of attentiveness that would make you swear that she understands you. She eats every 2-4 hours, sleeps up to 5 hours at night, and loves to listen to music.

She hasn't learned any fabulous "tricks" yet, so Jessie, tell Carl he'd be disappointed. But, I took her to the candy shop today and these women insisted she was waving back at them. She did have her right hand up and was wiggling her fingers, but I'm not going to pretend she was really waving...especially since they were standing about 5 feet away. But now that I think about it, maybe she was waving in hopes they would give her some candy.

And at 4 weeks, I would like to think I am starting to get the routine down. But today, after I had just changed a poopy diaper, bundled her in the car seat, grabbed my purse, and had a treat in hand to give to Maggie as we walked out the door, a tell-tale explosion was heard down-under. I thought, "No way you just pooped baby!" I considered just leaving her as it was going to be a short outing, but I couldn't. I pulled her out of the car seat and found that she had even pooped through her outfit. And this is why moms are always running behind!

I love this pic of Maggie sniffing Charlotte. I'm not sure Charlotte is fond of cold, wet noses. I think Maggie wants to eat the flower off this hat.

And where did she get that hat??? It is adorable! Will you bring it this weekend???

btw, I'm going to need someone to hook me up this w/e - I have an undergarment with hooks/eyes. Can you give me an assist? I figure you will be at the hotel that late morning with Charlotte while the guys meet for pictures etc. My hair/makeup appt is scheduled for 9:30.
