Raegan at 5 Weeks

Posted by on 02 Feb 2010 | Tagged as: Adoption, my life.

I weighed Raegan yesterday after her bath and she is now 7 1/2 pounds! We see many changes as the days go by. She is much more alert. During her awake time she kicks and moves her arms all over the place. She loves listening to us talk and especially loves listening to music. This morning she was rocking out to Uncle Josh Doyle. She no longer stares past us, but will stare right at us. It’s precious!

Raegan was finally able to meet the rest of her aunts, uncles and cousins this weekend at a shower held in her honor. She pretty much slept through the entire party, but she enjoyed being passed around and held by everyone…she loves to be held. We have to be careful how much we hold her because she always falls asleep while being held.

We started using cloth diapers yesterday. Raegan now has enough fat on her little legs that the plastic pants finally fit. The diaper sure makes her little bottom look huge, though. It’s pretty cute. We decided to do cloth diapers because it saves so much money, but since we’ve been using disposable diapers the last five weeks, we’ve realized how much trash we now generate, so it’s also good to know we won’t be filling up those landfills with diapers for the next several years.

Here are some pictures from her shower. Aunt Amanda was nice enough to take some cute posed shots too.

    The bottom half of her looks big with that cloth diaper on her! That’s funny. Brennan has some pants that he can only wear with his cloth diapers. If he wears them with disposables they fall right off, but with his bulky cloth diapers they stay up. 🙂

    Hi Kids!
    She is certainly growing! I think it is wonderful that you are using the cloth diapers. Did not know anyone did anymore but think it is a good solution. 🙂
    Such a precious little one. Keep sending the pictures. So fun to watch her grow. love, aunt diann

    I can’t believe how big she is getting so fast. She’s so precious! (I’m secretly following your blog on the sly…) 🙂
