6 weeks

Our little one turned six weeks yesterday. I have had so much fun getting to know her. Just like any new relationship, I am still in the "infatuation" period and she can do no wrong.
In these few weeks I have learned:
She likes to sleep swaddled, but with her right arm out and over her head.
She cries loudly and says "neh" when hungry. Her tired cry is an angry whimper.
She loves the orange flower that hangs on her bouncer seat and she likes to have her legs free so she can kick to make the flower dance.
The best way to make her smile is your toothiest grin.
She thinks naps are over-rated. If she is going to nap, her favorite place is in your arms.
Puppy noses are great for tickles.
Kung Pao chicken in breast milk = trip to the store for carpet cleaner.
She likes warm baths, but hates the cold lotion.
Glowing lights and church music are soothing.
As soon as you think you have her figured out, everything changes.

Your last line....that's what makes parenting so very exciting and challenging as well as enjoyable!
