Ella At Two Weeks
Ella is very easy going. And she sleeps. A lot. This is one of the rare moments I caught her with her eyes open. She has started to smile at us, but it is so infrequent that I could never anticipate when to have the camera handy. We'll just start with open eyes at this point. She is on a very predictable three-hour interval schedule. She sleeps for three hours, she wakes only to eat, I manage to squeeze in a diaper change, and then she goes back to sleep.
At her two week check-up she weighed 8 lbs. 3 oz. and measured 20 inches long. She looked healthy in every aspect, which is a relief considering the season of sickness that is currently upon us. So far so good for two weeks!
Ella At Three Weeks
Ella At Four Weeks
Ella is awake for longer stretches, now, and her sleep is now organizing into longer, consolidated periods that may soon be distinguishable as being naps. She loves to be held as she sleeps, and there's no shortage of people to oblige. She will also sleep very soundly in her carseat for lengths at a time.
Now that Ella is more alert, we notice what large eyes she has (a common trait among our children). They appear to be turning blue, but we will see. No matter the color, they will be beautifully framed by her perfect eyebrows and lush eyelashes.
Well, that's enough bragging for now...until next month!
