2 Weeks Update

Elley you are two weeks old!
4 Days Old
At your last doctor's appointment (which was about a week and a half ago on 12/15), you weighed 6 lbs 9 ozs (15th%ile), were 20.5 inches (80th%ile), and had a head circumference of 33.8 cm (21%ile). This was still down from your birth weight, but about 3 ozs up from when you left the hospital.
First Tummy Time at 5 Days Old
So far you're been a pretty easy baby, and I've actually been getting to sleep, something I wasn't expecting. Yes, you do wake up at night, but you go back to sleep too. Normally we put you in your crib around 7 or 8, and then you eat once more before I go to sleep around 11. Then you're up around 2:30 or 3, you don't always want to go back to sleep at this point, but I think I'm starting to figure you out. You're up again around 5:30 or so, and then depending on how close to 6 it is we may be up for the day at this point... by that I mean I'm up for the day since you'll spend most of the day napping.
With your Grandfather and Uncle, 8 Days Old
In general, once you eat you're willing to go back to sleep without being rocked or any other fuss. Although with each day, as you've gotten older, you're starting to realize how much is happening around you, and you're less and less excited about going to sleep.
Still 8 Days Old
You're eating like a champ, although maybe at times too much like a champ. I'm pretty sure at any given time if given the choice you'd be willing to eat. I did fit in my first pumping session today, and while I'm hoping to build up a nice freezer stash for when I go back to work, this does mean if necessary I could be away from you for more than an hour or two.
10 Days Old, With Your Great-Grandma, At Your Naming
You've had a lot of big firsts already in your little life. You had your naming. You celebrated Hanukkah. You had your first photo shoot. You celebrated your dad's birthday. You celebrated Christmas. And there's lots more still to come, with next week being your first New Year.

First Time in a Restaurant for Daddy's birthday, 12 Days Old
Speaking of Daddy, it's pretty awesome to see him with you. Yes, I may have found him bent over, trying not to be sick, with you, happy as can be sticking your foot into your dirty diaper, but as long as you're clean he's pretty amazing with you. He's decided that when you're awake you need to learn how to box. Not sure how well you'd do in a fight, but at least you're learning what an uppercut is... that's a plus, right?
13 Days Old
It feels crazy to think that you've only been here 2 weeks, since it really feels like you've been here forever. Already it's hard to imagine life without you. Which again doesn't quite make sense since you've really only been here such a short amount of time.

Again, 13 Days Old
We can't wait to see you grow, to get to know your personality, and discover who you really are. And yet you're pretty perfect already, and I'm pretty sure I don't want to see you grow up too quickly!
