2 Weeks Old!

Emery is now 2 weeks old (I know I'm a few days late, but I was waiting to take her for her 2 week checku-up, to get my pictures uploaded, etc.) and is doing very well! She is now 6 lbs, 4 oz and 19 1/2 inches long. She is eating about every 3 hours and is sleeping between 4 and 6 hours straight most nights (what a blessing!!). Her siblings still adore her, although the newness is wearing off for the boys a little bit. They still want to hold her, and are willing to help out with her as needed, but they're no longer fighting over her constantly. Bekah is still fascinated by Emery and wants to be near her most of the time. She can't wait for Emery to be big enough to play with her!

Here are a few new pictures of our 2 week old little angel. Enjoy!!

Here she is in one of our cloth diapers...some of them actually fit her now! These are called G Diapers, and they are a combination of cloth and disposables. They have a cloth cover, a nylon snap-in liner, and then an insert that you can either flush or throw away. The inserts are chlorine-free and are much better for sensitive skin than regular disposables, not to mention being much better for the environment. Can you tell I love this system?? Let me know if anyone wants more information.

I told you she loved her carrier, and I promised a picture. Well, here she is sleeping soundly on my chest in her Beco carrier. She is so comfy and secure in there that she very rarely cries even after several hours in it! And notice her mouth? Yeah, she sleeps like her daddy and her siblings...mouth WIDE open. I was hoping I might get one kid who knew how to keep her mouth closed in her sleep, but no luck. Maybe the next one? ;-)

This is little miss in her carseat. Her carseat is adorable, and she does okay in it for a few minutes at a time, but that's about it. As long as the car is moving she usually stays content, but once the car stops (or if I try to take her out of the car while still in the seat) she wails. I hope she starts liking the carseat more, or it's going to be a long summer!

I think I mentioned that she is also not a huge fan of her swing yet. She is okay for a few minutes if she's swaddled in the swing, but otherwise she screams as soon as we put her in it. I caught her in a good moment here in her swing. She was awake and alert, full and happy...doesn't happen often, so I got the camera quickly!
