Rose 2 weeks

From the back of Tisha's camera!

Our precious blessing is already two weeks.  It has been a true WHIRLWIND around here, but oh such a blessing.
Tisha drove in yesterday evening, so we had a FUN photoshoot today on Rose's two week birthday.

At two weeks old, Rose:
  • Is in newborn diapers and clothing.
  • Eats about 2 oz. per bottle, every 3 hours, and is an excellent eater.
  • Is still an amazing sleeper, and sleeps for 4 hour periods at night before we wake her up to eat.  Yes, I just said "wake her up".  (Her parents are not accustomed to this kind of a sleeper!)
  • Is alert for up to a couple hours at a time now!
  • Tries to suck her thumb.  We are shoving her paci in her mouth to stop this (which is just plain nuts since we are having a tough time weaning Grey of her paci currently).  Pacis are better than thumbs though in this tough parenting choice.
  • Turns her head back and forth.
  • Loves being swaddled.
We go to her 2 week well-check tomorrow, so I am anxious to see if she is back up to birth weight.  I feel like she is!

Her little umbilical cord stump fell off today (sorry tmi), so we will have her first "real" bath tomorrow. I can't wait! :)

We are SO grateful Tisha is here to help out.  I have a dentist appointment in the morning, then her doctor appointment, and Chet is back at work.  She has saved us this week for sure.  We are taking a few family photos tomorrow evening, if Chet gets off work in time.  EEK!!

Grey is absolutely in love with Rose.  She says, "Hi Baby" in the cutest.voice.ever. a hundred times a day to Rose.  There's nothing like sister love.  Nothing.

For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.  The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship.  And by him we cry, "Abba, Father." The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children.  Now if we are children, then we are heirs - heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.  
Romans 8:14-17
