2 week check up

Elly had her 2-week check up this week and all was great! She is now 7 pounds, 4.5 ounces and 21 inches long now. Steadily growing and in the 25% for weight and 75% for length in the 2 week age bracket. We are excited to start tummy time soon as her belly ribbon has almost fallen off. She will also get to have a real bath verses her sponge baths.....we will have to see how that goes as she's not the fondest of the baths at the moment.

Sweet smile

We have also been working on getting Elly on an eating and sleeping schedule and are steadily getting there. For the first week or so, she had her days and nights mixed up as well as was waking up about every hour to eat at night. We have progressed to a 2-3 hour eating schedule and hoping that gets even longer at night. Mom and Dad sure could use a few more hours of consecutive sleep ;-). Much thanks to Amanda for letting me borrow her book, Becoming Baby Wise, as I sacrificed sleep/naps one day to read how to get her on a schedule (and for those that know me, you know I typically don't read very fast). Needless to say, we started that night on trying to get her on the right track.

Elly is looking forward to the weather getting nice again so she can go for some more walks with mom (and hopefully dad will join us on the weekend). So far we have been able to walk twice and enjoy the sunshine and nice weather.
