10 week update

Do you hear angels singing? We do. We slept 10 hours last night. That is right, 10 glorious hours!!
8:30-6:30.
Let me just tell you it was a much needed 10 hours of sleep too. Mama bear got hit with an unfortunate "episode" Saturday night and Papa Bear had to be Mister mom, so sleep was what the doctor ordered.
Hollings is becoming more and more content. Worth said "imagine that, a woman who is content". I will let that comment slide. There is just something changing about her, and I love it. She is smiling so much more and a lot now. We can put her down and she can chill out in her bouncy seat for awhile. She loves to coo and for people to talk to her. She imitates sounds. Her smile is outstanding. It is so bright and warm. I just love her curly little lips.
We still have our moments of screaming and unhappiness but they are much more stretched out and don't last as long.
We are so thankful for this little precious baby girl.
Just look at these smiles, aren't they amazing!

Sunday, I'm so happy she slept through the night those wonderful 10 hours! I can't tell you how much I wish I had that right now...I feel like we might be getting close, but I don't want to get my hopes up too much.
Those photos are SOOO stinkin' sweet!! I love her little lips and the ones with her mouth wide open are awesome! I'm looking forward to 10 weeks now!

We still don't know what color they are! Some days they look more blue, somedays brown, and somedays green.

I like how you called it an episode like you have seizures or something, Old Sunday had another episode, time to put her in a home!
Glad Hollings helped you get sleep! That really is AMAZING that she did that this early on!
Those pictures are great look at all her little faces so cute

Um, 10 hours?!? Hollings, can you come talk to Noah please? That's so great, I'm sure you guys needed that gift. She's getting so big and beautiful! I think she looks more and more like BR. I love that your girls will have such a resemblance to each other. I love that about my sisters. I've been out of the blog world for so long I'm trying to catch up! PS- Glad you ordered BR's school pics, you will want them one day. They are just one of those things...

What a sweet smile!!! Curly is a great way of describing her little lips. She is so cute.

10 hours at 10 weeks is awesome! She is just growing up so fast!
