3 Weeks!

Finally, a happy progression shot. Don't worry, I won't be doing this EVERY week of her life. Just on the first four weeks and then once a month after that for the first year. It's something I wish I had done with Sam. But I was young and stupid back then. Now I'm just stupid.
Coming soon:
A Christmas Post
Comparison pics between Sam and Lola
Some beautiful shots my sister Becky took of Lola when she was just three days old.

Who do you think she looks like?

2 Weeks Old

And again with the anger. Poor baby went to the doctor this morning and the pricked her heel for the PKU test. She did not like that and neither did I. I had more tears than she did. It was really sad. Also really sad for me is that she gained 9 oz. last week and she is already 1.25 inches taller than when she was born. She was born a 6lbs. 12 oz. and 17.75 inches. When we left the hospital she was down to 6lbs. 3 oz. which was about 3% loss and totally normal for a new born. Three days later on her five day appointment she was 6 lbs 10 oz. Now, nine days later she is 7lbs. 3 oz. and 20 inches long. Why must they grow up so fast?

Here is a pic of her a little happier.
And here she is at her happiest, huggin' and sleepin' on her big bro.

The answer to the mystery...

Andrea was right! It's pink dryer lint. I guess I washed and dried a particularly pink load recently and BAM, pink lint. That's never happened at our house before. I think I like it.

One week old already... and a mystery.

Lola is spending more time awake. Once for a 20 minute stretch.
Miss Lola was not very happy with me during this shot.

This is something I have never seen before.
Take a guess.
Answer on Friday.
P.S. I like to put my nose by Lola's mouth so I can smell her breath. It smells good. Is that weird?

Remember these toys from the 80's? I'm pretty sure there was one floating around our house during my childhood but I don't remember who it belonged to. Becky, I think.
This is the moment I realized I gave birth to one.

Yeah, there is definitely a resemblance.
