We had to take Emme Claire to have lab work done this morning and then we took her to the pediatrician to find out how her jaundice was doing. Poor baby had to get stuck with a needle yet again to have blood drawn and mommy couldn't watch. Luckily daddy was there to hold her hand and then I held her after it was over. She got a great report from the doctor. She said that Emme was doing fine and that she was pleased with the results. We were so relieved to know that she wouldn't have to go under a light for the jaundice. So today was our first time to have an outing with a baby. We had to pack her diaper bag and try to figure out how and when I was going to feed her while we were in town. It was interesting to say the least. I'm sure it will get easier as time goes by. We got to use her stroller for the first time today. She looks so little in her infant carrier/carseat. And I though the carrier/carseat looked little before she got here but it is huge looking now. We have to take Emme Claire back to the doctor May 7th for her two week wellness check up. Oh and she was born weighing 6lbs 6oz and had lost down to somewhere around 5lbs 15oz while in the hospital but today she weighed 6lbs 3oz, so I was glad to find out she had gained back a little weight. She loves to eat!
She looks like a child's baby doll in her carrier.
For now she is sleeping beside the bed in a travel sized pack n play that has a bassinet on top. We have the same pack n play in a larger size for the living room but decided to get the little one because it fits good by the bed. We also got this little sleep positioner (the white wedge thing that you see on either side of her) and she loves sleeping in it. It must feel like someone is holding her or something.
Mommy's little darling!
Emme was given some newborn size bloomers as part of a gift from Brian's cousins Daryl and Misty. I took the bloomers and had her name monogrammed on them. Even though they are newborn size they still swallow her up. She looked so cute in them! :)
Wearing her infant bracelet that my friend Lesle gave her. It is so sweet, it has Emme engraved on it. When I first opened the gift it was so hard to believe it would ever fit on my baby's wrist but it does and it looks so cute on her.
