2 Weeks Old!

Yes- our precious Olivia is two weeks old as of yesterday! Here are some bigger pics (yes I received lots of feedback on how little the other ones turned out) and I put some posts a little lower down from the surprise baby shower too- ENJOY!

Olivia is doing amazing- at her check-up this week all was perfect- she was a little underweight according to the doctor because they like for them to have fully caught up to their birthweight by Day 8 and we took her on Day 11 and she was still 3 oz. short, but we are feeding her every 2 hours during the day. Instead of seeing him at 2 months, we will do weekly weigh-ins at his office just to make sure she catches up her baby weight.

We have an amazing child (I know, all parents say that)- but she is truly a blessing. She rarely cries and she has slept 7 hours every night since she was 1 week old (and we're at day 15!) We are all sleeping through the night, which I am told is very rare- so we are greatly appreciating it! She gets a great feeding at night and first thing in the morning, so doctor said there is no need to wake her up if she's sleeping straight through. She loves being cradled while we rock her in the glider and makes very funny faces while she's sleeping.

She looks at all of us with such intensity- her eyes are just beautiful! She recognizes Daddy, Mommy & Spencer (sister) already and creates lots of fun the few times she's awake each day.

Hugs to all & thanks for the continued visits!

Pretty freaking awesome! She's a blessing for sure. Sleeping through the night is just a super duper add on bonus round extra try fantastic round 4 type of thing! Nice work familia.

She's beautiful! I can't wait to meet her. You are super lucky that she sleeps through the night. Doesn't it make all the difference in the world? I think so!

Hope to see you soon!

Olivia is absolutely beautiful. Sleeping through the night is a blessing I missed out on. You are so lucky.
Don't worry about catching up. My oldest didn't catch up on her weight until she was 6 weeks as she dropped 2 pounds right after birth. She's an awaresome young lady now.
Bless you and your family.
