one week old...



It was one week ago today that our little Grace joined our family. Things are going pretty well around here. Then again...it's been so nice having Geoff home with us 24/7. I'll be missing him and his help next week when he returns to work.

We went to the pediatrician's yesterday so I could visit with the lactation consultant....and Grace weighed in at 8 lbs, 4 and a half ounces.....only 2 and a half ounces from her birth weight! We go back next week for her 2 week check-up where we'll be able to get her weight and length...and they'll take blood for her newborn screen.

So...to catalogue the things she's doing at 1 week....it will come as no surprise to all of you that she eats, sleeps, and you know....

During the day she is pretty good about taking her naps laying in her crib or the pack-and-play....but then...starting around 8pm or so....she suddenly 'needs' us to hold her to sleep. I'm not complaining though.....seriously....I was just telling Geoff today "we have a kid that is sleeping in the night....so who cares if we have to hold her....she could be up all night crying." (I'll let you know if tonight is different. Things tend to change after I write them down or tell someone, you know?)

We are trying to savor these moments as much as we can because we know all too well how fast the hand of time moves.

So here is our Grace at 1 week old.... (Geoff took these pictures today while she had her eyes open for a bit. Unfortunately, we didn't get around to attempt newborn pictures today....but I am really hoping we will be able to tomorrow....seeing as she will be 8 days old and she is already getting so big!!)

Her big sister can't deny her! Glad things are going well!

I am guessing Geoff will be wishing he was home with ya'll too!
