2 weeks

My sweet girl is 2 weeks old and she is changing everyday!

-Ava Kate weighs 8lbs and 9oz. (up 6 ounces from birth) and is 21 inches long (up 1 inch). They forgot to tell me her percentages.
-She is still wearing a newborn diaper and newborn and a few 0-3 month clothes.
-Even though she is a bigger baby weight wise, she is still so petite and tiny.  She has the skinniest, long legs!
-She has been a great baby!!  She eats every 3-4 hours during the day and every 4-5 hours at night.  She is already up to about 4oz. and has both breast milk and formula but mainly breast milk.
-Her awake times are getting longer now.
-For the most part, she is rarely fussy.  But when she is, she lets it all out!!  We have had a few fussy moments and a couple of bad nights with a gassy tummy ache that left she and I sleeping in the recliner all night...not fun! Thank goodness for gas relief drops! 
-When she burps, it is usually very loud and long...sounds like a man! :)
-She has really dark brown hair, deep blue eyes and a dark complection and looks a lot like her big sister when she was a baby but has her own special features too!
-She loves to be held and to snuggle!!
-Dr. Roberts was very pleased with how well she was growing and said everything looks good.  She got her foot pricked but no shots until 2 months.  They will also check her hips at 2 months since she was breech.  I'm so thankful and blessed to have two healthy girls!!
