2 Months old!

Emily is two months old already! I cannot believe it. Time went by so fast!

She went to the doctor and her new stats are:

9 lbs 11 oz

22 1/2 inches long

She was 6 lbs 8 oz and 19 1/2 inches long when born so she is growing right along! I knew she was going to be at least 8 lbs because she grew out of all her newborn clothes a few weeks ago.

Milestones the last few weeks:

Week 4: Learned how to put her legs up in the air and roll to one side (so cute!)

Week 5: smiled (really) for the first time

Week 6: rolled from her belly to her back

Week 8: giggled when talked to

Week 9: Starting to recognize her name

We are having a little trouble with breastfeeding now that I am back to work. She takes the bottle fine which is great, but when she is really hungry she gets really impatient when the milk from my breast is not coming out right away which makes her cry and pull off. This makes me cry because this is one way we bond together and I don't want it to end! She usually will refuse me during her 6-7pm feeding so I have to go pump while Adam feeds her a bottle. She has no issues if she gets up during the night to feed. Who knows!

Introducing Baby Emily!

I know, I know I have neglected this blog for about 9 weeks now.  I have been enjoying every minute with my little girl!
Emily Ann was born August 8th 2008 at 2:06pm.  She weighed 6lbs 8 inches and was 19 inches long.
I will post the birth story someday.  I just don't have the energy right now!!
Anywho I have to go back to work Monday.  I really loved staying home with Emily for 8 weeks.  I am very sad and depressed that I have to go back to work.  I have been balling all week long just at the thought of leaving her and going back to work.  Even commercials that play over and over again during the day bring a tear to my eye (I know, so freaking sad).
Monday will be so hard, but at least she will be in good hands.  My MIL is watching her Mondays and Thursdays.  My grandparents will watch her Tuesdays, Adam will have her Wednesdays and my mom will have her Fridays. Phew!!  It beats daycare.
