We are learning a lot about this sweet girl. She is a pretty easy baby, but does not like to be messed with. This includes diaper changes, baths, clothing changes, moving positions, etc. She just wants to hang out and not be bothered. She loves a pacifier. She drinks 1.5 -2 ounces per feeding. She poops approximately 56 times per day. She goes 3-4 hours between feedings usually. Like her brother and sister, she loves a good tight swaddle. It calms her immediately. Unlike her brother and sister, she does well in the car! No screaming! She is a snuggler. She loves to be on your chest much more than just in your arms. She can sleep through her brother and sister's craziness. At her one week check up she weighed 6 pounds 10 ounces. We will go for a weight check again next week to make sure she is back to birth weight. I have a feeling she will be. She has a little dimple on her back that caused us a bit of concern, but that checked out well today too. She is a healthy baby girl! We couldn't be happier with our newest love.
She has been on a few outings in her first few days. We made a trip to Babies R Us to get more bottles when she was 4 days old. And we ate at Chili's. Saturday we had to leave the house so someone could look at the house. I was not happy that John agreed to let someone see it, but it worked out fine. We ran to Walgreens and Sonic. It was the first time to have all 3 kids in the car. Noah was so excited to be sitting right by Hope, and Hope was happy to be in the middle to take care of Emmy. Today was the doctor appointment. She has her first photo session on Thursday and I am so excited about it. It is with Kristin Hollensworth. I cannot wait. We have never done the squishy newborn pictures and I have always wanted to.
If everything works out (please pray it does) our belongings will be delivered to our new house in Texas on August 13. This makes my stomach turn everytime I say it. It just seems so soon. I have known it was coming, but really, it's already here? One day at a time, right?
