The picture is a bit blurry but she was smiling a bit in this one and I think that better reflects her current accomplishments... she is smiling more and more everyday.
I have said it before but Mallie is a GREAT baby! She rarely cries just for crying sake - usually she only cries because she is hungry and her Momma isn't feeding her fast enough. In fact, this past weekend my Dad asked if she was always "this good" or if there was something in the Brenham air that was getting her to behave. I was very thankful to tell him that it was normal for her to be such a good, happy baby.
She is routinely sleeping for 5-6 hours at night which is fantastic and I am really thankful for. Of course she still has her nights where she wakes up every 3 hours but those are becoming more and more rare. The past week or we we have been trying to gett on a bedtime routine but so far that has not been a huge success, mostly because our schedule has been so inconsistent lately.
She is getting better and better at holding her head up but sometimes its just too heavy for her neck... she
Mallie loves to cuddle and ball up when being held - she scrunches her legs up and becomes a ball.
Mr./Daddy Whimsy has been staying with Mallie while I go to work and has brought her with him to a couple meetings and luncheons he has to go to for work. So far she has done great in these meetings. Speaking of doing great, she still has not fussed enough while in the church nursery for us to be called out of the grown up church service. Mr. Whimsy says its only a matter of time but we shall see!
This time last month I was still pretty unsure about who little Mallie would stay with when Daddy Whimsy couldn't bring her to work with him. The sweet girl we met in the church nursery the first day Mallie went said her mom, a former preschool teacher, was looking for something to do part time to keep her busy. We introduced her and Mallie to each other and it has been a really great match. Mallie has stayed with Mrs. Dorothy a handful of times and seems to be doing really well with it. I am happy there because Mallie gets lots of attention and love from Mrs. Dorthy. We are praising Jesus for that match and introduction! Its really helped me go back to work without a ton of stress.
I will do a blog post about our super adorable, fun and jam packed weekend... I just need to find a few minutes...
