Lauren's at 8 weeks

I thought it was overdue to share an update on baby girl Lauren.  She is really a great baby and has already brought us so much happiness!  Her personality is starting to develop more and she loves to smile big at Mommy and Daddy and "talk" to us.  It just melts our hearts :)  In the last week she has started sleeping through the night for long stretches, up to 7 hours! 

We also got some great news about Lauren this week...she was tested for the MECP2 gene that is responsible for Rett Syndrome and it came back NEGATIVE!!!  That was a huge relief for us, even though there was only a 1% chance of it being positive.  We can now sleep easier at night!

Here she is showing off her adorable smile!


  1. What great news! She sure is a beauty! I cannot believe she's already sleeping for 7 hour stretches!...That's amazing! We love and miss you all!

  2. That's fabulous! Great news! What a relief for you both.
