Two Weeks!?

Where did the time go!? My little girl had her first doctor's appointment last Friday on her two-week birthday, along with her repeat newborn screen, which she hated. She kicked and screamed through it (the poor nurse had to fill the little circles on the card completely while fighting snowflake's kicking and wiggling) but we survived it, even though mommy nearly started crying right along with her daughter.

She was born 8 lbs. 2 oz. and 20.5 in. long, left the hospital at 7 lbs. 10 oz. By the time of her doc visit, she was up to 8 lbs. 9 oz- she gained her birthweight back and then some! Go girl! She also grew 1/4 of an inch, to 20 3/4 in. long. Her next visit is in two more weeks. I can't wait to see how much more she will grow between now and then!

On the feeding front, this breastfeeding thing is alot of work! However, it is well worth it. I love the close, bonding feeling I get when she is looking at me while drinking away on the boob. We are still supplementing with formula, mostly at night now. I rented a pump from the hospital to #1- try to get my supply back up and #2- get ready for the dreaded return from work. I would like to pump milk for feeding her while I am gone off at work. Hopefully it all works out!

BTW, if y'all get a hold of the winning lottery numbers, please let me in on it! Pretty please?

And now, for your viewing pleasure, some pics of Her Snowiness!

This was taken on the ONE nice day we had last week. (Can you tell I'm so OVER winter??)


These last two were taken on my phone, hence the graininess. (bleh!)

That last one makes it look like you caught her in mid-dance move. Ha ha!
