2 Weeks

Two weeks ago today I gave birth to the most perfect, beautiful little girl. Two weeks ago I fell in love, a love that is completely indescribable (other moms get it though). Two weeks ago my life changed and I couldn't be more happy. These last two weeks have been wonderful. I have enjoyed every minute of every day spent with her. Even the nipple pain is worth it! And yes, it is getting better. I am noticing that she is starting to stay awake for longer periods of time during the day. Just this morning she sat for a couple hours almost just looking around and enjoying her bouncer while I got ready and did some things before we left for the day. She is still doing excellent on her sleeping and for that I am so happy and thankful. She gets up once for the most part during the night - on a rare occasion it is twice.

Today we had Skylar's two week check-up. Doctor is totally happy with her. She now weighs 7 pounds and is 20.5 inches. She is in the 80th percentile for her head, 75% for her length and 25% for her weight. She is just a little peanut.

Below are a couple of pictures that I took of her this morning while I was getting ready!

How the HELL do you get a newborn to sleep through the night as soon as she comes out? It's just NOT FAIR. I mean, um...it's great for you. :)
