Our little sprout is growing up! Larkin is spending more time awake then she used to and really starting to focus on objects around her. It was really exciting the day I knew that she recognized her mommy's face. And, just a couple of days ago she smiled back at me when I smiled at her - that's a moment I won't ever forget. Here are a few cute pictures of her from the last couple of weeks (you can click on the pictures to see them enlarged).
Larkin had her one-month doctor's appointment today, one day shy of 5 weeks of age, and it went really well. She weighed 8 lb. 7 oz. and her length measured at 20.5". Her doctor said we could start letting her sleep longer through the night and reduce her feedings from 7 down to 5-6 per day. Yay - only 1 night time feeding means more sleep for us!
