Olivia - 2 Weeks

On Wednesday at 11:00 PM Olivia turned 2 weeks old! We had her well baby visit and the doctor (who I love, by the way) said she is looking good. She went from 7 lb 9 oz at birth down to 6 lb 13 oz but is now back up to 7 lb 14 oz. Good girl! She also grew 1.5" and is now 21.5" long. She is in the 90th precentile for height! She continues to be a good little baby. She is already starting to sleep a little longer at nights. Well, last night was amazing, the night before that was one of the hardest. Let's hope tonight is more like last night with 2 almost 4 hour stretches! She still hates getting her diaper changed and hates getting her clothes changed, which makes for a frazzled mama, but I'm trying to learn that it's OK that she screams for a few minutes, because when the changing is all over she'll be happy again. She loves to cuddle with her daddy when he gets home from work. She is staying wake a bit longer during the days and watches the mobile on her swing or the toy on her seat. Her eyes go back and forth, sometimes looking at things, sometimes looking at nothing. She loved being swaddled and held to sleep for the past 2 weeks, but it seems like now she prefers to lay on her back with her arms out, thank goodness! We'll see if that lasts-I sure hope so. She is SO.CUTE. I think we'll keep her ;)
