Little Kristen is 6 weeks old today! We've been dealing with near-daily bouts of fussiness...not sure if it's just gas or a bit of colic. We do what we can to get through those times. Our church family prayed over her last night. She was very fussy during prayer time at the end of the service, arching her back and crying. Once hands were laid on her and the prayers started, an amazing calmness came over her. It was so cool to see!
The Zantac seems to be helping her reflux, and she's much more alert during the day. I love to watch her study her surroundings. Her big blue eyes focus in on a face (or the ceiling!). She watches intently and often makes her mouth into a perfect little "O". Every now and then, she'll let out a sweet cooing noise. What a joy to observe!
She's not sleeping through the night yet, but she's getting better about going back to sleep after eating in the middle of the night. She's also getting better about WHERE she sleeps...for a time it was pretty much only in someone's arms!
All in all, we're doing well. Emily changes diapers and loves to help with bath time. Gracie sings to Kristen a lot and likes to help dress her. They're such good big sisters!
