Charlotte is such a happy girl. At 6 weeks old, she weighs 10 pounds, which is a gain of almost 2 pounds in a month! She had her first vaccines today, which most of you probably know by now is always a tough call for me. I am particularly glad she got her pertussis (whooping cough) shot though because there is an epidemic right now, and it can be fatal in infants. She is such an easy baby! What you see in this video is her typical demeanor. When she gets hungry, she "squeaks" to let us know (what I call her mini-cry), and she quickly drifts off to sleep after the meal wherever I set her down.
Sorry for the shaky video quality. She was kicking my arm a lot, and we use a little handheld Flip video camera, so it can be tough to keep it steady.
