Rayne Marie

Rayne Marie was born at 7:06pm and weighed 3lbs 7oz. Today she is 25lbs 4oz and 34.5inches tall. Rayne is my most laid back of the bunch. Even when she was born. She loved to sleep and still does! She is my snuggler too. She always had to touch whoever was laid next to her. She now walks up to you and says "hand, hand", so she can hold it while she walks with you. She was also the first to walk up to Beau & say "I wuv you Dada". I think she will be getting a car for it!
In the NICU, she was the first to get a baby massage and to this day she still loves to get lotion put on & her feet & back rubbed. It is quite cute. Most people look at Rayne & think she is the more delicate, graceful, "Jackie-O" of the group. However, she is actually the messiest and it never seems to bother her.

And her hands are never empty! It has become a running joke with us, but the truth is she never goes anywhere without something. She has to take a treasure. Usually it is her doll, a blanket, a bottle, but sometimes it is a phone, a remote, ect. And if you try to take it........well, let's just say she isn't as laid back anymore! Also, she loves jackets! She wears several of my sweaters or jackets as long robes. She likes to dress up.

She is also the sneaky one of the bunch. Noni's favorite story is when they were about 11months old, Rayne came up and sat by River. She watched and waited until RIver put her bottle down. She then put her EMPTY bottle right next to it, grabbed River's full bottle and then took off. Poor River went to take a sip & had no clue what had just happened.
If you come over, Rayne will probably sing you a song and read you a book. She LOVES to do both and go for walks outside. She is my sweetie-pie princess with a smile that will absolutely melt your heart. And if that doesn't melt your heart, her sweet sing-song voice with whispers into your ear while she hugs you tight will.

Tomorrow- Julianne Carroll

Such cute posts of the girls individually - thank you for sharing :)

And caffiene is my 6th addiction! I could NOT survive without coke or pepsi - unfortunately I don't like coffee - I know, can you believe it?

I love these individual posts on the girls. It's great to get to hear more about their personalities and "-isms." I'm calling the hospital's OT tomorrow to talk about the infant massage. If you have any advice on that, please email me when you get a chance.
