Little Miss Stubborn!
Mylie is now 9 weeks and weighs 12 pounds! She has gained an average of 8.7 oz a week. She's got chubby little cheeks and legs and arms. We call her our little piglet. She can roll from her back to her side. She smiles a lot and almost has a real giggle. She tries to laugh and it's so cute! She likes to look at books, listen to music and singing, and be held. She likes to go outside and on short walks in her stroller. She doesn't like to be put down much, and she especially hates tummy time. She'll cry for quite a while after that tortuous activity! I put her in my little baby carrier that straps on my body and holds her to do my chores. She likes to vacuum with me. Her favorite toy is a stuffed elephant with different patterns all over it's body and ears. She has something in common with Albert Einstein. When she wakes up or rides in her car seat, she magically has crazy hair! She loves Richie. When I can't get her to sleep, I hand her over to Richie and she's usually out within about 5 min. She is as stubborn as can be. She REFUSES to go down...bed time OR nap time...unless she is breastfed, even if she's not hungry! I didn't even start out doing that, but that's the only way to get her down anymore. Yesterday was awful. She took a 1 1/2 hour nap in the morning, and two 30 minute naps in the afternoon. THEN she wouldn't go to bed until 11:00 pm. She was SO whiny! At her last Dr. appointment he said, "Well you've certainly got a little lady with a personality!" I think he meant to say that she was stubborn. Yeah, he did.
That's some crazy hair for ya!
And for some great news, Mylie is going to have a new cousin in June! That's right folks, Aunt Cassie is pregnant! And not to mention, Aunt Patrice is having a baby girl in November...we can hardly wait!
