Today is my niece Courtney's Sweet 16! Happy Birthday Courtney! We love you and can't wait for your fun weekend in Charleston!
With school well under way The Leviners are semi adjusted to our new routines. Getting up at 5 am to begin the day is overwhelming, (I do like my 8 hours) but I am getting use to it. I am non stop until 7 am- this is when I get to school. The drive to Leah's is relaxing for me- I finally get to sit and not feel so rushed. I have also rediscovered my wedding cd and have been listening to that (when she is not "talking" to me) on the way to dropping Caroline off- fun stuff! Caroline has started to wake up in the night again- this hasn't happened since she was nine weeks, but some have told me that she might be going through a growth spurt! I took her to the doctor last week and she weighed 15 lbs 8 ozs and was 26 1/4 inches (did I already post this?). The doctor has said she's going to be tall- no wonder she's waking me up!! So we're slowly but surely getting all these things figured out- I do have to say that being a working mom with an infant is especially hard, but I don't mind because "It Won't Be Long Like This" and I want to remember everything about Caroline- EVERYTHING!
We are still amazed at all the things she's doing. As I was giving her a bath last night I noticed that she was sucking her two middle fingers instead of her thumb! I told her that she can only suck her thumb while pulling them out of her mouth- she of course just laughed at me (although I sucked my index finger for a very LONG time).
We are working on sitting up! When I try letting her sit up by herself she just leans way forward- her head almost touches her toes! I am not trying to rush her (not ready for her to be mobile yet either)...but Dr. T wants her sitting up at her 6 mos check up! We'll see what the next few weeks bring!
I am tired, forgetful, and all blogged out (according to coworkers you don't get those precious brain cells back either- I think I believe them).

Happy 24 weeks you precious baby girl!

One of my favorite things to do is laugh!

Playing in daddy's truck after shopping!

Helping mommy work in her classroom!

Playing! Playing! Playing away!

Love the new background and especially the new pictures. She is a cutie!

I am learning everyday that no matter when I want milestones to occur or when doctors think they should happen - they don't happen in our time. They happen in Morgan Kate's time and they will happen in Caroline's time. She is growing and changing and doing all the things babies do. She will sit when she is ready to sit! Try not to stress about those things.

Love you and miss you!

Put a diaper wipe container in between her legs when you are trying to get her to sit up. This will give her something to lean on.
