2 weeks

The last 2 weeks have seemed to fly by! 

Cambridge is an absolute joy to have in our home. 
She is so even-tempered and patient- even when
she hasn't eaten in 5 + hours, she will just fuss a tiny 
bit and as soon as I pick her up she stops altogether.

Crew has done incredibly well with the transition.
He has needed more attention, and has acted up a
little more but is so sweet to baby girl! 

He wants to hold her all the time and will sit and
sing or talk to her. He refers to her as "baby girl"
all the time which I love!

We had a 2 week check-up for Cambridge yesterday
and she has gained exactly a pound since she was born.
The doc says that is very unusual to have gained that 
much so we must be doing something right!

I was hoping that would be the case, because she 
has been going for 5 and 6 hour stretches at night and
I want to be able to enjoy it, not be worrying that she's
getting enough to eat. With her weight gain, I can
rest assured she's getting enough :)

We are loving every minute of the newborn stage!
Ok, maybe not the interrupted sleep at night-
but even then, I love the quiet time alone with
my little girl. It feels like having a little piece
of heaven in your home to have a newborn around.

Now I'm off to take a nap!
