2 weeks!...well and a few days! :)

At just over 2 weeks old our girl is growing and finally eating like a champ! She even gained almost a whole pound in 1 week and is now a whopping 7lbs 10oz! So much for problems with her nursing!  She just needed a little longer than the boys did to figure it all out.  I am so glad that we stuck with it though!

She is a very contented baby, slepping lots still and only getting up every 3-4 hrs at night which is very manageable!  She has an "awake" and slightly irritable time from about 7-9pm but it isn't terrible colic like our boys had and if I feed her she calms down pretty overall things are going great!

It is our first full week away from daddy though and that is hard on both Dominic and I. So I try and send him a text each day with her photo and update here as well so he can see how she is changing.  Please pray for us as this time is probably the hardest. We continue to pray about God's plan in all of this change - and are grateful for the many blessings we do have even when it is hard.

The boys are loving their sister - even though Elijah is a little jealous of her "lap" time with me. But I try and give him some time also and he seems to be adjusting ok. Gabriel and Isaac both just love on her so much and are wonderful helpers!

We hope your week has been blessed and thank yo so much for your encouragement and support!

So cute! I had to chuckle about Karlena's weight though. Savannah is doing much better with breastfeeding now too and she was up to 7 lbs. 10 ozs. at her weight check last week - so funny! Glad that she's doing better with the eating and I'll keep praying for your family during this transition time. That must be difficult being a "single" mom during the week!!

She is soooo cute. She has really changed. I'm so glad the nursing is going well (finally). I really miss you. Let me know if you have a spare and we can go to lunch. Of course you must bring Karlena.
