40 Weeks!

How big is the baby this week: Emersyn is 8 lbs 2 oz, per her first doctor appointment today.  She was 8 lbs 10 oz at birth.

Due Date: Emersyn arrived May 4, 2012!

Weight Gain: So far I've lost 18 of the 27 lbs I gained.  Yay for big babies and lots of amniotic fluid.

Symptoms: Emersyn is nursing every 2-3 hours on average.  She loves to be swaddled and held.    

Cravings: I can't get enough of her chubby cheeks, yummy neck, and adorable little hands and feet.

Aversions: She makes some stinky diapers haha!

Emersyn is a really good sleeper.  She does seem to have her days and nights mixed up though, sleeping in longer stretches during the day.

I am loving: My baby girl!  Also, seeing Blake as a father is amazing.  A whole new world of love.

I miss: Our dog, Gus.

I am looking forward to: E waking up and nursing, my boobies are engorged haha!

I'm spazzing about: Being the best mama I can be to my girl.

Best thing about this week: Our first day home- just hubs and I with Emersyn, completely content.

Milestones: My milk came in yesterday, and E slept in her crib last night.

Movement: When she's not swaddled and sleeping, she loves to stretch out and move, just like when she was in my belly:)

It's a...: miracle!
