amelia marie: two weeks.

second child syndrome in full effect. poor girl. blog is way late, she didn't get monthly pregnancy posts, and now, her pictures were all taken with my iphone! eek. not the rebel or even a point and shoot. completely unedited. bad momma. oh well, gotta make some concessions.

mr. ben's two week post is here

at two weeks:

- made two trips to the doctor. she was a nicu baby so they wanted to follow up with breathing and weight gain since she was strictly breast feeding. at one week she was 8 pounds 5 ounces. her weight when we left the hospital. and at two weeks she was 8 pounds 9 ounces. back up to birth weight. 

- was switched to being bottle fed. home girl played and took forever to nurse. i can pump and feed her in the time it took to nurse. and then i got extra milk to freeze since i was pumping.

- taking about 3-4 ounces every 3-4 hours. twenty four hours a day.

- had a real bath!

- is a fan of swaddling.

- has the prettiest blue eyes. {fingers crossed i'm the odd man out with brown eyes in this family.}

- is pretty strong. her neck strength is surprising. {maybe it's because i want her to grow slowly knowing she's the last baby!}

- is very noisy. makes noises the entire time she is asleep.

- can no longer wear newborn diapers. lady bug was in size one when we left the hospital. i guess she has her momma's thighs.

- can fit into some newborn clothing but mostly wears 0-3 mos.
