I honestly cannot believe how fast these past two weeks have flown! I cannot even imagine how fast the next two years will go! I try not to think about it and enjoy every second I have with her here at home before I go back to work! I could definitely get used to staying here at home with her! :) She is such a great baby. We have only had a couple of nights since we have been home where she didn't want to sleep. Other than that, we have to wake her up every 4 hours to eat.
We went to Hadlea's two week checkup yesterday and she is quite the little pig! :) The doctor said the point of the two week checkup was to ensure the baby was eating well and back to birth weight. Hadlea was 6lbs 11oz at birth and was 7lbs 2oz at her appointment...definitely above birth weight! She LOVES to eat and is definitely her momma's daughter! Ha! Here are the stats from her appointment:
Length: 21inches - 78%
Weight: 7lbs 2 oz - 19%
Head: 35cm - 29%
I honestly had no idea how time consuming a new baby at home would be. Since Hadlea will not breastfeed, I have to pump and feed...which can sometimes get old! :) I would MUCH rather be holding her and feeding her, but she does eat well so we cannot complain! She is eating every 3 hours during the day and 4 at night. The doctor did say we could allow her to go 5 hours without eating at night since she obviously is eating very well. I try to remember to take pictures each day, but sometimes I forget. Here are a few of my very favorites from the hospital through today at two weeks!
