After eating Stella usually ends up like this...her arms crossed under her cute cheeks. It reminds me of posing for a senior picture. I know this picture doesn't show it the greatest, but it is so cute!
First walk. She slept for the majority of the stroll around the neighborhood, but got hot towards the end...thank goodness home was close.
It's hard to believe 2 weeks have already passed since we were blessed with our sweet Stella. And she truly is sweet and precious all wrapped up in one. Besides a couple late night feedings she is sleeping great at night. It's easy to get up in the wee hours knowing after a full belly and a diaper change Stella will go right back down. And this girl loves to eat. We had a quick check up at the doctor today to make sure her weight was on track..and after losing a bit after birth she is back to 9 pounds 8 ounces...get this...she is 98 percentile for her weight and 50 percentile for her height. CRAZY! The doctor says she'll catch up but I always imagined having a long baby since I'm no shorty and Tom is a decent height.
Anyway, our little butterball is trying to use her neck more, loves her swing, likes walks (if it's not too hot) and loves for her mommy and daddy to tell her stories. I tend to read from books to her...Tom on the other hand always has something interesting to tell her.
We get a kick out of all the faces she makes...especially as she's waking up or finished eating. The doctor said we can start doing tummy time so that should help strengthen her neck muscles more.
We are so blessed and thankful for all your prayers!
