First Appointment

We took little miss to the doctor today for her first check up - she's 5 days old today. BY the way...her little mohawk is how they styled her hair at the hospital. They also put the little bow in front and I still haven't gotten her hair to lay down! It's a little better today after I washed it.
When she was born she weighed 7lbs 2 oz and then her discharge weight was 6lbs 8 oz. Well, that was on Wednesday and today she was back at 7lbs. The doctor couldn't believe that she gained 8 oz in 2 days and said that was really good. I was quite relieved because it has been a huge challenge to keep her awake to nurse and so I thought I wasn't feeding her enough. She sleeps ALL day and when I nurse I'll undress her, change her diaper, clean the umbilical cord, wipe her down with a washcloth and she will just go right to sleep in about 3 minutes. So, I'm guessing she just get's the good stuff fast - anyways, I'm happy.


I love this picture .... so super sweet. I have one kind of like it when Brady was born....hmmmm, I need to post them on here so we can all compare.

I took this one just about 2 hours ago.

I CAN NOT get over how much hair Trinity has! It is super cute and I hope it curls...is it bad to want one grand child to favor tha GranJan????

No way is it bad to wish one favored GranJan! especially when she's such a cute button herself!

At least, that's my opinion.

Zac keeps hoping that she'll have curly hair....I think it would be a miracle, but as we can all see....miracles happen!

Ah, yes, the senario is all too familiar. I use to spend 45 mins. each feeding at night just to keep Jaida awake to get enough into her. It was SO very frustrating as I thought about ME only having 2 hours to sleep before she woke me up again for another 45 min. wrestle.

Great to hear she is gaining weight well and looking very so cute.

Don't worry about keeping her up unless its seriously a LONG time. Babies even little ones will sometimes got 4 hours, even when they are really tiny. Mine both did in the first 2 weeks, but after that, they started staying awake longer and there were no problems. :)

Oh, yeah, and you'll probably think I'm a terrible mom, but I slept with my babies so it hardly bothered me to feed them. I think I told you that before??

she is sooooooo cute!

i had a sleeper too - at 4 he still is a big sleeper. we took him to the doctor at one point because we worried about how much he was sleeping but all's fine - whatever will we do when he's a teenager???

enjoy her down time and hope you get lots of rest too - if Brady will let you :)
