Where does the time go?

I can't believe that Sarah is already almost 7 weeks! She is growing very well. At her one month appointment, she was right at 11 lbs and 22 3/4 inches. That put her in the 90th %tile for weight and 70th for length!! The thing I'm loving the most is that she is starting to smile. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get photographic evidence. She's also getting better at sleeping at night. She now almost always will sleep for 3 or 4 hours in a row. She's even slept for 6 straight hours a couple nights!!

We finally started going back to church now that she's old enough for me to leave in the nursery. We also left her with a friend so that we could go to dinner and a movie to celebrate Josh's birthday. It was kinda sad leaving her the first time, but I was okay. We also found a child care center so that I can go back to work. I really wish we could afford for me to stay home with her, but that's not possible right now. I've got an interview with the State School today. I would be working with the mentally retarded. I also have an interview tomorrow with Home Depot. I've heard they're paying $10/hr for cashiers. So I'll be leaving her in childcare for the first time today.

Well, I need to get some lunch before my interview so I'll leave you with some pictures. These are a little while ago; I haven't gotten ones off my camera since she was one month.

What a cutie! Always sleeping or at least seeming that way in pictures. My theory is that babies are awake more but new moms only get a chance to take pictures when they're asleep :)
