Today we had her first Dr. appointment and it went well. She weighs 9lbs 1oz (up from 8lbs 2oz) and is 21 1/4 inches (up from 21 inches). Everything looked good- we have a healthy, happy baby on our hands!
We have had a couple of rough nights this week. For some reason Emily doesn't want to fall asleep after her 9:30/10:00pm feeding. After she eats she acts like she is still starving (rooting around and crying) and when I try to feed her more she doesn't want to eat. She is wide awake and then gets very fussy and cries quite a bit. When we finally get her to calm down and fall asleep we lay her in the bassinet and she wakes up and we start the whole process over again. Last night she finally fell asleep at 2:00am. Mom and Dad are very tired!
She is not a fan of her swing or anything that requires strapping her in- so the car seat is not her favorite thing either. She likes her play mat and staring at herself in the mirror. She loves having her hair washed and the sound of running water.
Steve and I are doing great, still getting into the groove of having a baby (I think it gets a little easier every day). Everything takes just a little more planning and time but it is all so worth it. We have never loved anything more than our little girl and we wouldn't trade these adjustments and sleepless nights for anything in the world.
