Sophie's 2 Week Check Up

Sophia had her 2 week check up yesterday! She was actually 3 weeks and 1 day old, but it was the only appointment that worked around our schedule.

Her doctor said everything looks great! She is up to 7lbs 7oz (she was 7lbs 3oz at birth). She is also 19 1/2 inches long (she was 19 inches at birth). She is growing! While listening to her heart he did hear a small heart murmer, but he said it doesn't sound concerning. A lot of babies are born with heart murmers. Her's sounds small and it will probably close on its own.

She goes back again at 2 months. She will get her first set of shots at that visit as well. :(

Here are a few pictures that I've taken with my phone this week...

The First Two Weeks

Sophia turned two weeks old yesterday! It is hard to believe it has already been two weeks, but it also seems like it has been much longer than that. It is already hard to remember our lives without her in it. It has been an adjustment getting used to having a newborn again, but she fits in so well and makes our family feel complete.

Sophia and I stayed in the hospital for two days, I went in on Wednesday and we came home on Friday. When Aiden was born I couldn't wait to get home from the hospital, with Sophia I probably would have stayed another day if they had let me. Not because I didn't feel well enough to go home, but because at the hospital I was able to lay around all day and the nurses pretty much waited on me and brought me whatever I needed. It was almost like being on a vacation! Haha!

Her first few days at home went pretty smoothly, and so far have continued to go really well. She started out eating about an ounce of formula every three hours or so. Now she takes 2-3 ounces every 3-4 hours. We are working to get her on an eating schedule, and she seems to be adjusting well.

Aiden and Jenny both love her so much! It has been a little tough trying to remind Aiden to be gentle with Sophia, but he is getting better about it. It is difficult to be stern with him about being having to be gentle with Sophia, but also not make him feel like he can't touch her or like we are trying to push him away. Since Jenny is older, and already has a younger sibling, she understands better. They are both always asking us if they can hold Sophie or if Sophie is awake. We let Jenny feed her once, but Aiden has only gotten to hold her so far. I'm sure we'll let him feed her, I'm just not sure that he's ready yet. Maybe once Sophia is a little older I'll feel better about it.

Sophia usually only wakes up once a night to eat. At first she was staying awake after her middle of the night bottle. Now we try to keep her awake in the evenings before bedtime so that she'll go back to sleep after her middle of the night bottle. Jaime and I take turns waking up with her.

Sophia had her first doctor's appointment when she was just five days old. Her pediatrician said she looked good. She goes back next week for her two week check up.
