Our sweet little Lucy girl had her two week appointment a couple of days ago and she is growing like a champ! Her birthweight was 6 lbs. 4 oz. and when they measured her at the office she was already up to 7 lbs. 5 oz. I wanted to get some pictures of her while she is still tiny but wasn't able to get any professional ones done so I attempted to take some myself. Taking pictures of a newborn looks so easy, but it was quite a challenge getting her into any sort of position I liked. I did, however, manage to get a few that I like.
When Norah was born a friend from one of my classes gave me this cute gray and yellow headband. I love it and now have pictures of both girls wearing it. :)
I love the smell of her new skin. I could sit and smell it all day.
Lucy has really long fingers and toes. I don't know where she got it from because it certainly wasn't from me--mine are more squashed and square--and Ryan doesn't have particularly gangly limbs either.
Trying to get pictures of her sleeping was sort of a joke. I was able to get this one just before she woke up from her nap. I tried to unwrap her slowly so I could get a couple cute naked ones, but she wouldn't have any of that.
This is as close as it gets to a sleeping naked baby. I had Ryan hold her in his hands.
I love these two pictures of Norah and Lucy. Norah seems so HUGE in comparison.
Lucy has been such a joy to have these past two weeks. It certainly hasn't been very easy--I've shed more tears than a menopausal woman watching Titanic--BUT, I think we are starting to adjust and I wouldn't change it:) We sure love this sweet new baby girl.
