Olivia Kay is 1 week old!


Olivia Kay is one week old today! This first week with her here has been really great. She is such a good baby! We had her 1st well visit yesterday with the pediatrician. She did great and looks as healthy as can be. Doctor said that she is growing well and that she loves her beautiful "pink color"..ha!





+She now weighs in at 6 lbs 12 oz. (10-25th percentile)
+She is 20 inches long (75th percentile) (I THOUGHT that the 22 that they had originally said seemed quite long). The nurse at the doc office said that it was often hard to get an accurate read in the delivery room...so she is actually much closer to 20 inches!...still long but not as long as we were originally informed).
+Her head measures at 14 inches (75th percentile).
+She is a really good eater. I am breast feeding as much as possible...and then when she needs more I have to supplement with formula. She switches between the two with no issues at all.
+She sleeps pretty good at night...but she would prefer to be held by me while she sleeps. If I let her sleep on my chest she will sleep like a log. When I put her down she sleeps for awhile, but then fusses to be picked up.
+She goes about 3 hours in between feedings and sleeps pretty much the rest of the time!

Blake is still doing really great. I think that it is harder on Ryan and I than him...we just get sad every once in awhile when we think that he isn't our baby anymore...and he seems so big and old! He is at school today. My dad came and picked him up so that I didn't have to pack up Livi and take her out in the snow to get there. (Ryan goes to work at 6a.m., so he can't take him). I was a little worried about Blake getting confused or sad if Papa was taking him and dropping him off...but I talked to my dad and he said that Blake did great. No issues at all..and he was proud to show off his Papa to his friends :)
