So I had every intention on posting Emerson’s birth story and nursery reveal this week, but I was busy getting my snuggles in and before I knew it she turned two weeks! Moving forward I plan on posting monthly updates, but I felt I needed to celebrate her first week at home. It was a successful week at that.
|This was the best photo. She kept rolling on me. HA!|
At our one week check up she was back at her birth weight, a even 7 lbs and measured 19.5 inches.
She’s doing great! The pediatrician was pleased with the cooling out come and we are too! Now that we are home so far so good. She’s a pooping and peeing machine.
Girlfriend likes to sleep and we’re lucky she sleeps through the night. Hoping I didn’t just jinx myself.
All breast milk. We actually do a combo of breast feeding and bottle feeding. While we were at UC Davis Children’s Hospital we were only able to bottle feed so I got really good at pumping. Once we brought our girl home we started on breast feeding and have been successful. However, I ‘m starting to feel as though I’m not producing enough.
Nothing but newborn clothes. 0-3 months are still too big.
We had a number of visitors this week. It felt great to see friends. She even had her first date with her future bf Wyatt.
Other than the boppy pillow for nursing we’re loving the Summer Infant SwaddleMe Microfleece Wrap, Boba Wrap and Rock n’ Play.
Passing all her tests and being discharged from the hospital.
Things seem to be healing well. I have a check up next week so we’ll see. Fingers crossed I’ll be cleared to start working out. Not sure what I weigh, but I think it’s safe to say I only need to shed five or so pounds and tighten up a bit.
It’s still very surreal that we’re now responsible for a little person. We’re just smitten. The weather has been gorgeous and we’ve been able to get outside for a few long walks. It feels great to get out and move.
