{weekly update} week one

I can't believe that it's already been one week since our little girl was born!! Granted it was a busy week waiting for papers and the "go ahead" toast the 6 hour trek home. We are so blessed and are having the best time learning our new roles as parents.

our first picture of her 

Weight: at birth 7 pounds. At discharge 6 pounds 10 ounces ( only a 5% decrease). And at her one week check up today 7 pounds 1 ounce!!

Sleep: lots. Close to 19 or 20 hours for this growing babe. 

Clothes: newborn, well only from certain brands as they range in size. But she doesn't fit into the footed ones they are way TOO big and her feet come out an up into her stomach so she has these dangling legs, haha. 

Visitors: from her birth side; mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, brother, aunt, and cousin. From our family; my aunt and uncle and cousins that live in Spokane. Once we got home we were welcomed by the hubs family; mom, dad, brothers (uncles), sister in law ( aunt), cousins, and  grandma (great grandma). Also she had met my sister and her husband.

Diet: similac formula.   Anywhere from 1 1/4 ounces to 2 ounces a feeding every 2 1/2 to 3 hours.  

Crying: when she is hungry. But it's really non existent at this point. Hopefully that is a trend that continues. 

Baby Gear Love: dr. browns glass bottles, swaddle blankets/baby blankets, and her carseat. 

Milestones: leaving the hospital for my aunts house 2 days after birth. First shopping trip to Target.  Getting the call on Friday that we are good to go home and finally arriving home on Saturday 4 days after birth!!  Riding in a car for 6 hours. And meeting all her pets. 

We absolutely love this little girl and are so proud that we were chosen to be her parents!!
