6 weeks old!

Wow, time is going by really fast. I cannot believe our little Scarlet will be 6 weeks old tomorrow. She is growing like a weed! As of Friday last week, she weighed 5 pounds 7 ounces (up from 4 pounds 12 ounces just the Friday before that)! She is such a great little eater. She still doesn't like to sleep at night, which always creates an adventure. At least I occasionally get to watch the long lost music videos on MTV and VH1 since they only play those between 2 and 5 in the morning.


Scarlet finally got to meet her Marziale cousins. It feels like they had to wait forever to meet her. I'm so glad we were finally able to get together and compare her with Makoy (one of the cutest babies EVER) who is only 3-1/2 months older than Scarlet. I'm so glad Scarlet has at least one cousin close to her age. I wish she had more, but we sure are glad she has Makoy.


Dr. Jacob was the main man who did my C-section. He was also the main doctor throughout the trying times in my pregnancy. He was there the day we found out that there was a problem with Kingston. I am so glad he was there for the delivery. He has been absolutely amazing throughout this entire process.

In other news, Ryan has been crazilly trying to get applications into two graduate schools, Georgetown (Washinton DC) and Kaiser (California). We are not getting our hopes up for acceptance, this is more to just kind of see where he stands among the applicants. If he gets in though, great! If not, we will try again next year.


Here's a pic of Scarlet, just because she is the cutest baby ever (I can say that since she's mine, right?) Hopefully she can get that stupid oxygen off this week. Keep your fingers crossed.

She is so cute. Makoy looks like a tub-o-lub. I can't believe they even make diapers that small.

Just showing Jesse the pics of your little one and he asked -- "Is she increasing in mass?" Thought Ryan would appreciate it. :)
