It never ceases to amaze how fast babies grow. In Ruby’s case I keep thinking, “Wow, with Audrey and Zachary I was still pregnant!” So even though she’s already 2 weeks old, I’m so grateful I’m not 42 weeks pregnant.
That doesn’t make it easier though. Time should still slow down.
This little girl is such an amazing baby! She’s a very considerate 4th child and adds another splash of sweetness to our lives that we didn’t know was missing.
At her two week check today she was 7lbs 5oz (up 3oz from birth weight, which is amazing for my babies!)
Her sleep schedule is still pretty irregular, but she’s new here so we forgive her. She will sleep anywhere from 2-5 hours stretches, and I love it when these stretches happen at night.
She had her newborn photoshoot last week and was a complete angel, nursed once and then was out for the whole session!
She’s a great nurser and does pretty well with my over abundant supply, usually my babies are choking, violently throwing themselves off and making a mess of the both of us in the process. She doesn’t have this issue. Unfortunately in order to keep up with me she swallows a lot of air and has a very gassy tummy.
Thank goodness for gripe water, but she isn’t any good at burping.
She HATES the car seat, and cries anytime she’s in the car.
She refuses to sleep in her own bed. We’re working on that because the queen sized bed isn’t big enough for me, Jordan and Ruby. Mostly because Ruby takes up the entire bed herself. I miss my California King sized bed.
