She is getting better and better at putting herself to sleep, which is so thrilling to me. I'm not letting her "cry it out", exactly, I just lay her down when she's awake but drowsy. She will usually lay there grinning at me while I swaddle her, which makes it really hard for me to leave her in there, haha! But I know she's tired so I kiss her goodnight and leave the room. She usually fusses a little bit, but most of the time she just goes to sleep on her own! And when I say "fusses", I mean she literally just lets out a "wah!" every few seconds. Those "wahs" get further and further apart with longer stretches of silence in between until finally they just stop. It usually takes no more than 5 minutes. If she ever does get to actually crying, I go in and get her.
She is starting to get chunkier! I am hoping that one day I won't be able to count the rolls on her thighs. Time shall tell, I suppose.
The dogs are so far very good with her. They are really attentive to her, especially in the first few days we were home from the hospital. Olive would even snap at JJ if he got too close. They're better now, not so desperate to try to sniff her. They do lick her whenever they get the chance, especially Sadie. But she's a lickier dog in general. I hope they continue to be so loving with her once she's mobile and can actually do things to bother them.

I know I'm her mom, but dang this kid is cute. I seriously think she is the cutest baby I've ever seen, not that I'm biased or anything. ;) But just look at her! Our other kids are going to have a lot to live up to in the looks department.

|I'm sorry but it does not get any cuter.|
I mean, that dimple. I die! We love this baby girl!
