Adelyn Elise: Two Weeks

Well that was definitely the fastest two weeks of my life! Time has flown by since Emerson was born but I think it's going in double time now that Adelyn is here! Sometimes I wish it would slow down just a little bit!

Anyway, here's what our girl has been up to this week:

Weight: 6 lbs 1 oz (Back up to birth weight!!)
Length: 19.5 inches

-The doctor was pleased with her weight gain and now wants her to gain about an ounce a day until her one month appointment. We are doing our best to fatten her up! 

-Nursing is getting better every day but it is still quite the struggle. It's probably my biggest source of stress right now so if you have a moment to say a little prayer for us, I'd appreciate it! Emerson got it right at the two week mark so I'm hoping Adelyn will soon. In the meantime I'm still pumping and she is getting a bottle about every 2-3 hours. She usually has between 1.5-2.5 ounces. 

-She is an amazing sleeper. She has quite a bit of wake time during the day but she has been sleeping through the night since last week. She usually goes to bed between 10:00 and 10:30 and I have to wake her up between 5:30 and 6:00 to eat. 

-She has a little fussy time during the evenings and likes to be held. It seems especially prominent during dinner time. I usually put her in the Boba or Jesse and I take turns holding her.

-She has been out and about quite a bit during her second week. She went to church for the first time and slept in the Boba the whole time. We've also been grocery shopping and to an indoor play place. I have been wearing her in the Boba everywhere we go and she still loves it. It's a lifesaver!

-We had her newborn photo session last Friday. She is usually so sleepy during the mornings but she was wide awake during the session. We did everything we could to get her to sleep and we were able to get some awesome shots. I can't wait to see how they turn out!

-She's such a cuddly baby and seems happiest when she is being held or laying on our chests. I don't mind a bit. You will find me holding her every chance I get.

-She's still very calm and laid back. She seems pretty oblivious to the noise around her and will sleep through pretty much anything. That's a good thing because big sister can still do her thing!

-We already love her so very much. She's just the sweetest little thing and the perfect addition to our family. We are so excited to watch her grow!

And just for fun, here is a comparison picture of Emerson and Adelyn. A reminds of E so very much at this point so we are interested to see if she will continue to favor her as she gets older!
We sure are blessed to have these two precious girls!

OH wow! They do look so much alike! I will pray for the nursing thing. I remember both my new babies being fussy around 6-7 at night but that gets better even once they are a couple of months old (I think it pretty much stopped for Haley around 4 months old). So I hope that gives you hope!

Gosh, I love newborn wrinkles! I'm praying you guys get in your stride for nursing soon. The pump STINKS and I know it's so much easier to just nurse. Good luck!

She's so tiny and sweet! I really hope nursing gets better for you. I had a really hard time with my first two and ended up pumping for 3 months with Maddie. Jack is doing better than Gus and Maddie, and I'm just hoping it will keep going well. Hang in there!!
