2 Weeks!

I don't want my baby to grow up and she's only 2 weeks old! I know a lot of people aren't fans of the newborn stage, but I just think she's so precious and sweet right now. I realize they're a lot more "fun" when they start interacting with you, but she already has so much personality right now.

We had 2 week well baby check up today. Poor baby got the heel prick :-( it was sad. And she's so strong and squirmy it took so much longer because they had to fight against her to enough blood to send in. The doctor came in and told us that she is really quite advanced for her age! yay!! She's holding her own head and neck up pretty well, I still support it because it makes me nervous, she's really quite ridiculous! lol

At 5 days old she was 7 lbs 13 oz and the doc said he wouldn't be surprised if she gained 8 oz by 2 weeks. The goal for 2 weeks is to reach her birth weight, which was 8 lbs. WELL. We did even better! lol Today she weighed 9 lbs 1.5 oz(awesome for breastfed baby!) and measured at 21.1 inches, which puts her in the 95th percentile for height and 90th percentile for weight.

Today she also got her first real bath. We've been sponging her up until now, she didn't seem to mind so much! :)

Bath time!

Sucking her thumb :)
