We hit the 6 week mark, and it is like having a different baby. She sleeps fairly regularly, smiles and wants to play when she wakes up, only fusses when she's hungry plus a bit in the evenings when she's getting tired and easily calms down when held.
I'm sure we'll hit other tough phases, and maybe I am jinxing myself to weeks of cranky baby--but this is really lovely. Something major must happen to their brain chemicals and social development within the course of a day or two, making them suddenly feel like other people make them happy even if they don't bring milk.
