Puppies vs Babies

A funny comment N made the other day was about puppies and babies. N was asking me if E knew her name yet. I told him I didn't think so. He concluded that puppies must be smarter than babies then because when we got our puppy Abby she knew her name by now. I pointed out that Abby could walk earlier as well. Maybe if E knew how to crawl she would come when we called her. I think she is funner than our puppy. Her latest trick is to smile, and it rocks!

Miss Dolittle

Well E is now over 6 weeks old and we can still officially say that she does not require the care that most infants do. She cries maybe 2 mintues a day. Sleeps endlessly still and for the past week or more has consistantly slept 7-8 hours at night. I can't imagine why we got so lucky here. I am sure God knew just what I needed with a 5th baby and no extended family around to help me. She is truely amazingly good! And we are not just saying that to brag either. We have nick-named her Miss Dolittle since she really doesn't do much. But the name is a misnomer because she does bring an awful lot of love into our home, and that isn't a little thing!!
