7 weeks

My little girl is 7 weeks old today! I cannot believe all the craziness that has ensued over the last 7 weeks. Most of it has been good, but still crazy no less. As I mentioned before, she is now 5 pounds 12 ounces and about 18 inches long. She also has a double chin. I love that she is finally looking like a real newborn baby and not so much a fragile preemie anymore. Also, she is now only on oxygen at night, which I have LOVED. I love that I don't have to haul the oxygen tank everywhere anymore. That thing is such a pain in the butt. Hopefully this week she will be weaned off the oxygen completely. If only I could sleep this well. This is what I came upon this morning as I was working. Doesn't she look heavenly?
