Six Weeks...I'm An Aunt!...We Had Snow!!!!!
This is a combined post about all the exciting things happening in our lives. First off, a day late, here is Sweet Pea's six week post...
She is growing so fast! She has nothing newborn that she can wear anymore (unless it was labeled newborn but clearly 0-3 month size). She is outgrowing her newborn cloth diapers and I give her another week or so and they'll be done. I weighed and measured her at 8 lbs 14.5 oz and 21.25 inches. They had "measured" her at 22 inches last week at the doctor, but I didn't believe it. They do it on this paper that moves while she is kicking and screaming. They make a line at her head and then as she wiggles all over they grab her foot and make another line. It is always comical because I SEE her moving well below where they drew the head line as they mark her foot and yet it goes on her chart.
All that matters I guess is that she IS growing. She is nursing really well. She and I connected that way from the very beginning. Rosebud nursed well from the start also, and I attribute that to their births. I'll have to share that another time.
I'm an aunt!!!!! My brother and sister-in-law had a baby girl this morning. She looks just like my SIL & she is beautiful! I'd think she was beautiful even if she looked just like my brother :o) Anyway, she is one special little girl and I know they'll be fantastic parents. They named her Ivy which is such a pretty name. She weighed 1/2 oz less than her big cousin Sweet Pea. Not Sweet Pea's birth weight, Sweet Pea's today weight. So much for sending all my newborn girl clothes their way! I cannot wait to see her and hug her and kiss her!!!!
For those of you on my blogroll, I have been reading your posts...but I've been doing it as I nurse via my Kindle Fire. Leaving comments isn't as easy that way, so I often don't. I feel bad too because when people comment you know they are actually reading. I'M READING! Someday I might be better typing one handed with a touch screen...but today is not that day!
