Growing Fast

This cute little girl had her 2 week check-up this week. When we left the hospital with her she weighed 8 lbs 11 oz. At her check-up she was up to a whopping 9 lbs 10 oz, so she's almost gained a full pound from the time we brought her home! Love it! First baby of ours that's a little chunk :) Doctor looked her over and couldn't find anything wrong with her. We were misinformed about the newborn screening having a blood test for CF, it appears Oregon still has not gotten with it and added that so we will be bringing her in a couple weeks from now for the sweat-chloride test. I will be relieved to have it over and done with. While she looks so dang healthy she could still have a mild form of it so will just be a relief to know either way. Though of course I hope she doesn't.

Meredith has started smiling. It is so dang cute! She does it mostly when Seth is holding her. He sits there and giggles the whole time so I suppose she can't help but smile back at him. She is doing better at night, we are down to a feeding before bed, one in the middle of the night and then she's got us up at 6 am. I'd prefer to sleep a little longer in the morning but oh well, it's allowed me to get up, get her fed and then myself out the door for walking. The doctor told us 11 lbs seems to be the magic weight, babies will sleep longer at that weight. So we are now shooting for that 11 pounds, I want more longer, uniterrupted sleep!! Haha.

It's been nice to get out walking again. I'm a bit frustrated that my core muscles are still so weak. My hips are still trying to get back to normal so they've been stiff but it's been nice to get out and walk at a decent pace and get back out with my friend. A lot of talk therapy happens on these walks and we both have missed it :)

And now more pictures!

Rob always looks so relaxed with the babies. You can always see such love for his kids. I still see plenty of red in that hair in the pics! I guess she will be grown before I get my hands on her!

She is adorable - just holding her was heaven! :) I hope you are getting more rest! I'm glad you're out walking again too! ;)
