2 Weeks old!

What we've been up to:
  • Trying to get caught up on sleep whenever we can.  It is much harder to sleep when Makenzie is sleeping than I thought.  I am constantly trying to get things done, but I need to try harder to sleep more.  
  • Visiting with friends and family.
  • Trying to establish some sort of routine as our "new normal".  I'll keep you posted on how that works out.  
  • Makenzie and I are still trying to find our rhythm. 

What Makenzie's been up to:
  • Sleeping, eating, and pooping.
  • She has been sleeping much better, and is falling asleep after her nighttime feedings now. 
  • She loves to be outside.  If she is ever fussy all she needs to be happy is a walk around the property.
  • She had her first doctor's appointment on Friday.  She is doing well and she gained 4 ounces at her weight check today so she is now above her birth weight!
  • She has also been enjoying some tummy time lately. 

We've definitely been able to slow things down a bit since the first week.  We haven't had too many outings, just a few trips to the store and a few errands.  

We had a newborn photo-shoot with my sister-in-law Chris, of  I thought feeding Makenzie before hand would put her in a nice sleep for posing and such, but she had other plans.  She was awake for a lot of the time which made for some funny faces.  We will try again soon.  Here are some of our favorites though!
