Taylor fell the other day and insisted she needed one of her princess "band-dands" on her nose. Her nose miraculously instantly felt better and she kept it on for a few hours. Funny lady. She has been a great big sister, and loves to help out with baby London.
We have a belly button!!! Finally! They said since London had the IV lines in her umbilical cord that it would stay on longer than normal. I didn't know that longer than normal meant for 6 weeks! Sponge baths only go so far, so I was pretty excited to give her a real bath. She loved it as you can see, she was super chill the whole time.
Tracie, Troy and the kids came for a visit a few weeks ago. Taylor and Brooke are about 9 months apart and the babies London and Connor are only 5 weeks apart. Can you see a bit of a difference in those two? Little lady.
PLAY DATES. I love our ward, and all the mommas! Seriously, our play dates have gone from the once a week park date, to somehow hanging out sometimes several days in the week. Here are all the babies hanging out. Hudson, Logan, Isabel, and London. All the older babies were rolling all over the place, so it was quite the test to get them all together.
Bought this precious swimsuit for London before she was born, don't know why I was thinking she might actually go in the pool. Oh well, she looks cute in it though!

And for the London happenings at 6 weeks...
-She is a great sleeper for the most part, she'd rather be swaddled and putting herself to sleep in the crib by herself than in the swing or even being held (one benefit to starting life out in the NICU)
-She was 7 pounds 5 ounces at her 4 week appt, so I think she is close to 8 pounds now and plumping up
-She is a great eater, and after only about 4 weeks she was able to fully breastfeed instead of having to breast feed her, bottle feed her since she was too tired to finish, and then pump.
-She has endured the wrath of a 2 year old sibling, it's pretty amazing what the subsequent kids go through with older siblings and survive. Let's just say I can never leave London unsupervised for a second.
-She is starting to get on a good predictable schedule and have actual awake/sleep times throughout the day.
-Overall she is a great, beautiful, and alert baby for her age and prematurity.
-We love her!
