One Month!

3 days from now Amelia will be a month old. Where did the time go?

We are all adjusting well and loving being a family of 3! Amelia is letting us sleep about 4 hours at a time at night, although it's nothing like a full nights' sleep it's better than 1-2 hours! She's eating like a champ, and at her 2 week appointment she had gained one pound and one and a half inches (8pounds 9 ounces, 21.5inches long).

Amelia is starting to bottle feed once a day which is a nice break for mom! She loves her thumbs but has trouble finding them. We gave her a paci but she spits it out so once she gets sick of it she switches to her thumb. She LOVES to swing (why didn't we buy one?), so we put her in her car seat and swing it back and forth, mom and dad are both building muscle, and does NOT like to sit still. She definitely lets us know what she wants!

She's quite the shopper too. We make biweekly trips just about to Target or the mall, just to get out and walk. She loves being in her stroller but doesn't like it when it stops moving!

The whole family is just enthralled, both grandmas are completely in love and don't mind taking her off our hands when we visit! She's enjoyed her first Thanksgiving as much as a 3 week old can enjoy a holiday!

Her favorite person is her daddy. She recognizes his voice when he comes in the room and falls asleep in his arms whenever he holds her. She'll forever be a daddy's girl!

I'll post some pictures later in the week! Happy Holidays!

Amelia Therese!!!

I have been terrible at keeping up at this but a new baby takes a lot of time!

Amelia Therese was born one week ago today, November 4. She was 7lb 9 oz and 20inches long. It's been a long week with lots of adventures, but Tim and I have never felt more blessed. We are slowly getting use to being a family of three and getting use to limited hours of sleep. It's amazing to think that she's already a week old. It makes us realize just how fast she's going to grow up.

And now for the pictures!

Until Next Time
