Two week appointment and past her birth weight!

We had Daughter's first doctor appointment!  She has surpassed her birth weight (woo hoo!) and everything is looking good.
6 pounds 14 ounces

Dr checking Daughter over

She's supposed to start tummy time now that her umbilical cord has fallen off.

 She's doing better at night now...  sleeping more but still not enough for mommy or daddy.  Mat is exhausted at work!  I'm getting a few naps here and there when she's sleeping but she keeps me pretty busy.  Shes always eating!  And then she falls asleep on me and I don't want to move her :)

We've learned that Huggies diapers are no good.. at least until her legs get a bit thicker... but we've tried two of them and had two tremendous leaks.  

Mookie is jealous, but he's being good.  Taking full advantage of my attention whenever Daughter doesn't have it for a moment.  Like now...

  1. FYI: Huggies Little Snugglers do leak. We didn't like them either. But once she can move out of newborn size and into size 1, Huggies Snug and Dry are great and do not leak! :)

    1. Thanks! We hope to be using cloth diapers soon... but with this sleep deprivation it's taking longer than we expected. Diapers are expensive!

  2. She's growing too fast! Are you guys coming out this way anytime soon?

    1. No plans for a trip soon... my sister has a baby shower in October, but I might just make it a day trip and leave Daughter and Mat here. I may be able to quickly visit though! :)

  3. Hmmm... I loved Huggies- though I only used them sporadically as I cloth diapered too. I started when my daughter was 8 weeks old- that's when she started to fit into the one-sized pockets. You'll find less leaks when you get the the cloth.
