Here's an update for you on everyone's favorite 3.5 month old. 
1. She sleeps all night, every night.
2. Her funny hair and surprised expression gives people a good laugh in the grocery store.
3. She is generally good-natured, and will even nap on the fly, when being carried around all over the place in the moby wrap.
4. Has not yet had any major or even minor health issues.
5. Unlike her chubby older brother, is in just the 50th percentile for weight. (See Cons #2)

1. Thinks being in the car seat is how they get answers at Guantanamo.
2. Isn't too keen on being put down.
3. Emphatically refuses to be bottle fed 
4. Seems to have developed early-onset stranger anxiety. This includes such "strangers" as friends that we see almost every day.

Hair Accessory

Today I did something I wouldn't have guessed I would do. I MADE a hair accessory and put it on my baby. Surprising, that I had fun doing it and not surprising that she looks so cute.
"Make a Gwen face"

The Roommate

Since moving to our new apartment, Baby Gwen is no longer sleeping in the kitchen, but is trying out sharing a room with her big brother. After the first night sleeping together, the conversation went like this. Me: So, did you know that Gwen slept in the same room as you last night? Levi: (surly) Yes. Me: Oh really? How? Levi: "She was making noises ALL NIGHT. Like this "eh eh eh". In the panic I had to hide under my blanket! " So, last night was night #6 and she woke him up at 5am and I'm pretty sure he did not fall back asleep, while the rest of us had no problems.
