Emily Makenna - 1 Week Old

What have you been up to these days?
You were 7lb 7oz on Monday at your doctor's appointment. I'm sure you are probably close to 8lb now. When you were born you weighed 7lb 8oz but lost down to 6lb 14oz when we left the hospital. It only took you over the weekend to catch back up on your weight!

You wear size newborn diapers. Mommy and Daddy love the Huggies Supremes over the Pampers Swaddlers since they have a cut out for your umbilical cord, and have the wet indicator strip on them.

You have already outgrown some of your newborn onesies. You can wear some of your 0-3mo clothes, but all brands are sized differently.

You are doing pretty good at getting your days and nights straighten out. You are most alert with your eyes open first thing in the morning. You like to sit and look at the sunlight close to the window. Most of the time you sleep, unless you are hungry or need your diaper changed. Mommy and Daddy are so thankful for your swing and bouncing chair. You absolutely love them.

We first tried to get you to breastfeed, but you didn't want to latch so we decided to switch you to formula. You are eating all the time. Usually you eat 2oz every three hours unless it is night time and then you sometimes want to eat in 2 hours. During the day, if you are really sleeping good you will wait 4 hours to eat.

If Mommy lays you on her chest, or gives you tummy time on your blanket you are working on picking your head up.

Your not sure about bathtime yet. Hopefully you will start liking it soon.

You get the hiccups and sneeze a lot. That's okay though. Your doctor said that the hiccups will ease up as you get older, and you sneeze to clear your nasal passages.

You sure are changing/growing so much each day. It's hard to believe you are already a week old!
