Callie - 2 Weeks

I love her. I love her. I love her. I love her!
I seriously can't say it enough so I'm sorry if it gets annoying.  Just think about how Matt feels, I can't tell you how many times a day he gets to hear it. :)

I don't know how 2 weeks have already passed since Callie was born.  I swear I was just wishing away the weeks waiting for her to get here, now I would do almost anything to just stop time for awhile.  I am trying to soak up every second with her that I can because I have a feeling the weeks are just going to fly by even faster.

Here's our little sweetie waiting for the doctor at her 2 week check.

Weight: 9 pounds 12 ounces (93 percentile)
Length: 21 inches (82 percentile)
Head Circumference: 14.25 inches (63 percentile)

We also had to go back to the audiologist to have her ears rechecked because one of them failed when they tested them in the hospital...she passed.  Yay!

And since she was breech for so long we will be taking her to Children's Hospital in a couple weeks to have her hips checked.  (Apparently hip problems are more common in breech babies.)  Our pediatrician said he wasn't too concerned about it but they did seem a little off so we want to make sure everything is okay. 

Callie is the sweetest little baby.  She LOVES her sleep.  She is awake for a couple hours in the morning and we try to keep her awake for a couple hours at night and other than that (and waking up to eat) she is snoozing away.  We thought that all her day sleeping might interfere with our night sleeping, but nope.  She wakes up about 2 (sometimes 3) times a night to eat and goes right back to sleep.  Just today I have noticed her staying awake a little bit more which has been fun, but I have to admit one of my absolute favorite things right now is having her all cuddled up on my chest sleeping (like she is doing right now.) :)

She is such a content little baby.  Someone is always wanting to hold her and she tolerates all the love quite well.  (Although I think she is already a little Mama's probably has nothing to do with her food source.) :)  We have been blessed with another (3 out of 3!) baby that hardly ever cries.  She is definitely our biggest crier at about a whole 90 seconds worth a day...usually when she is hungry and sometimes when she is being changed. 

We are relearning what it is like to change a newborn.  Aka: we are going through a massive amount of diapers.  Why is it that babies feel the need to poop and pee when a cold wet wipe touches them OR right after getting a nice new clean diaper on?

Alexa and Braden absolutely adore their little sister!
Alexa is constantly giving her kisses and wanting to hold her.  She is such an awesome big sister and I am so excited to watch them grow up together.  Braden loves giving her kisses too and always holds her hand.  I can see him being such a sweet, protective big brother.

I thought this picture was funny.  She was completely asleep with her hands up like this because the other two were running around the house like little crazy people.  The poor thing has learned to stay on guard even when she's sleeping. 

Here is Miss Callie getting her first real bath.
Yeah, she slept through most of it. 

We are definitely in love with this little girl!

Day 48

Tyler said...

AWWWW!! That is all I can say. She is just too much sweetness for one person.. I think you should share ;) So glad everything is going well around your house. Being blessed with a great baby sure helps things so more smoothly.

She is just too cute for words! Yes, you better soak it all up...the baby stage passes so quickly!

Bethany said...

Oh. My. Gosh! I love that sweet little thing.
I love that you took pictures of her diapers. Hilarious. So absolutely hilarious.
I'm glad she's a good sleeper. Are you feeling any better?

Amy said...

I am baby hungry. This post has just made it worse. I want one I want one I want yours! I mean, one. :)
I am glad that she is so good for you. With her being your third, I am sure you really need it.

CM said...

So adorable! Love the baby legs!

PS. It would be good to take her to a Chiropractor too. They don't do adjustments like they do on adults, they do more pressure point type stuff with babies. My DH started working on the boys the minute they were born. Being breach, it would be good to make sure everything is in alignment in her little spine. Just my amateur two cents! :-)

Holly said...

I'm with CM and the chiro. All ours went for the first time when they were between 5 and 10 days old. And love the baby cute!

Andrea said...

How precious is she???? Just adorable! I absolutely cannot believe she slept throught that bath. Maddie screamed through her first I also love those baby leggings in the last picture. She is just beautiful! :)

Unknown said...

Oh how cute! I love ALL the pictures! I noticed her cord was off....that was the saddest thing for me. I cried and cried.

I think she looks like Braden. ??

Did you take the leggings picture? Awesome!

Julie said...

She is a baby doll!! I love her too!! She is so sweet. I hear ya on the newborn diapers's why I invested in a wipey made all the difference!

Seizing My Day said...

Oh my goodness ... she is SO sweet!! =) I love love those rainbow legs!! I loved my babies in those white long sleeved onsies!! **sigh** I need a baby!! can't have anymore of my own... hm... that is a problem!! =) Congrats!~! oh... try rinsing her wipes in warm water before you change her if you are near a sink... that is what I did... the running water gets it out of their system too... before you take the diaper off ... we changed our newborns on a towel on the bathroom counter... worked well for us! =) ha ha!
