More on Bailey

Bailey is growing like a weed. She is up to 8 lbs. and grown a 1/2 in. She still wears the same 4 or 5 outfits because she doesn't fit into any of her clothes. The pj's above fit her best. She is great at night, she still eats every 3 hours, but goes right back to sleep. So I am tired, but not completely sleep deprived.

For those who were wondering what Baileys middle name is- it's Lynn. We didn't have her name picked until an hour before she was born, and her middle name just popped out of my mouth when the nurses asked after she was born. We had discussed 3 possible middle names the whole time we were in labor (Lynn was one of them), but not knowing if it was a boy or a girl made it hard to be serious on picking a name let alone a middle name. 
 She doesn't have a lot of hair, but what hair she does have has a reddish tint to it. Westons hair was the same way when he was an infant, and around 4 months old it became very blonde, so we are curious what color her hair will be. It would be fun to have a brunnette, a blonde, and a red head.
That looks like a bald spot above her ear, it's actually a blonde patch, so we won't be surprised if her hair ends up coming in blonde.
She spends more time awake now, she is still the sleepiest thing, but her awake stretches are in the morning when all the kids wake up and evenings when the kids go to bed. All the time in between that she is asleep as soon as she finishes eating. So while I feel busier than ever, she still sleeps enough that it allows me to get stuff done.
We still adore her to pieces!

What a cutie! That WOULD be awesome if she had red hair BUT keeps the good temperment. I can't wait to see her. Sleepy babies are awesome, especially transisition to 3 kids with 2 very active ones.

She's too cute. Do you think she looks anything like Autumn or Weston? To me she doesn't look like either of them.

She is so beautiful April! Amazing. You are seriously a rockstar to have 3 kids so young! :) Well, we are all almost on the mend. Once that full recovery comes I will let you know and we can get together. Can't wait. I want to hang out so bad...oh and being healthy again wouldn't be so bad either! :)
