One Week Old
December 19, 2012
Ellie is such a sweet baby! So far, she is our best baby. We hardly ever hear her cry, unless of course she's hungry or needs to be changed. Our home has so much more love in it now that she's here. We feel her sweet little spirit so strongly and are so blessed to have her in our family. Our kids just adore her and love to gives hugs and kisses and say, "I love you!". When she does cry, both Talmage and Emma run to her side and say, "It's ok Ellie. It's ok Ellie." I love watching them be so sweet to their baby sister.
Ellie had her first doctor's appointment on Monday, December 17. She weighed 7 lbs oz, only 1 oz smaller than her birth weight! The doctor was very pleased. I was worried she'd lost more weight because my milk didn't come in until Sunday, when she was 4 days old. We also discovered that she is only 19.5 in, not 21.3 in like the hospital said she was. Emma was 19.5 in so I'm pretty sure the doctor's office was more accurate. Plus, we are both short so it makes sense that our babies are short.
