She still sleeps a lot, but is awake a little more each day. She is also sleeping better at night. She eats at 11...sleeps til 4...sleeps again until 7 and then goes back to sleep again! She is sleeping in her little baby vibrating chair. I think that the bassinet is still a bit big and overwhelming for her.
She likes to be swaddled up...but we are starting to spend more time on the floor "working out"...
Her newborn clothes are still big...but getting better.
We have had lots of company and visitors, so it has been fun showing her off!!

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 :)

Disregard my bed-head...it had baan a pretty long day by this point :)
When we brought her home she weighed 6 lbs. 8 oz. We take her back to the doctor tomorrow so I will be anxious to see if she has gained any weight back. She is a good eater, so I bet so!
She is sleeping from 2-3 hours a night at a time...she just wakes up to eat and then is right back to sleep..so it isn't bad.
Blake is still doing GREAT. He is such a sweet boy and we have not had any issues with him adjusting. He is really concerned about his baby sissy and when she cries, he says "baby's sad mama"...

Blake's Aunt Arlee and Uncle Josh got him the battery powered 4 wheeler. He was a little leery at first, but we took it outside yesterday and he really got the hang of it. It goes 2 miles/hour and Blake keeps it a full speed the whole time :)
