I can't believe this girl is already 3 weeks (and 2 days) old! Time sure flies when you are sleep-deprived and trying to keep up with three kids. This girl is very much loved already by all of us. She loves, loves, loves to sleep. Like all the time. Just in the last week she's started to have some longer awake stretches. She's also a pig. I'm 100% positive that she eats more than either of my other babies did. But she keeps it all down 95% of the time so I guess she really needs it. She's a little cross-eyed like Elsie was, but I can already tell that it's getting better and should be completely resolved in a month or so. She's been quite a bit happier the last few days and I can tell that she can see better, so I'm sure those two things go hand in hand. She hates the binky, but if I force her to keep it in, she'll suck on it for a minute or two and be completely happy. Why don't my babies like binkies??? She loves to give me smiles, even if I know they probably aren't intentional...I'm saying they are! She hates tummy time, of course, and let's out some funny squawks while she's doing it. She has a nice coat of dark fuzz on her head. Her cord took forever to fall off, so she didn't get a real bath until after two weeks old. She LOVED it! She loves to snuggle and I am usually very happy to do that with her! She has a crazy strong neck. She was lifting her head up while cuddling with me on the delivery table. No joke. And I'm shocked at how often and well she can lift that thing up at just 3 weeks! She's not very good at gripping my fingers but she's also rolled about halfway over twice now...she's a strong one!
And now for the dumping of the bazillion phone pictures I've taken of her. Or just a fraction of them. She's such a cutie!

(Grandma Perkins has been staying with us for the last week. My kitchen and floors have never been so consistently clean and Tatum is sufficiently spoiled. We will be sad when she leaves us tomorrow!)
