Day 14 & Life with a Newborn

I posted days 12 and 13 yesterday right here, so check it out if you haven't!

Penny is two weeks old today! What a whirlwind it has been. We're still trying to figure it all out. She's sleeping and eating fairly well, so that's a plus. Nighttimes are a little rough only because I'm so exhausted! And we're trying to figure out the feeding thing: she chokes a lot and then she falls asleep only to want more like 20 minutes later. It's all trial and error!

She's been a joy to have around. Her favorite things right now are sleeping on Brandon's chest and us reading this book called "Hello Animals" that is black & white. She doesn't mind when Dexter licks her face, either.

We had her two week appointment today! She is 7 lbs 14 oz and 19 3/4 inches long. That's a weight gain of 1 lbs 2 oz from her birth weight and almost 2 inches in length! She did so well and didn't cry once, the doctor was impressed.

Now on to the 30 Day Photo Challenge. Today is... Day 14: Eyes.

I decided to take photos of everyone in the house right now. It was harder to zoom in on the baby, but I got fairly good pics of the rest of us!


  1. Wow Penny is absolutely a heart breaker..... such a gorgeous little girl :) wishing you all a very Happy 2012 xx

  2. Cool pictures! And Penny is absolutely adorable! I love that pic of her! :)
