Wow, what a week! I forgot how the days fly by in a crazy blur with a newborn. I can't believe Maeva is already 2 weeks old...she is such a sweet little baby! Unfortunately it appears she has some reflux problems, so that's been no fun. I'm trying not to worry about it, but when you go from a baby who basically never spit up, to a baby having major spit up that even comes out her nose? Well, it can be a little unsettling for mama, particularly at night time. We're working on figuring out what will help her, so hopefully things will level out soon. I hate to see her uncomfortable. :( On the bright side, she is gaining weight despite all of this! She was 7 lbs 13 oz at birth, 8 lbs 4 oz at 1 week old, and 8 lbs 15 oz today, so I'm very thankful for that.
Other than that, not much is new here. Of course I have tons of pictures to share, so I thought I'd post a few today. I snapped this picture the other day when Patrick got home from work, and I think it's one of my favorite pictures ever. Looking at this picture and realizing it's my sweet little family is just surreal and makes me feel overwhelmingly blessed. And yes, I'm sappy right now. Blame the postpartum hormones. :)
I do worry about leaving him alone with her in a room because he has been known to try to climb in her seat with, or should I say ON her. But sometimes it's just not realistic for me to always be in the room. The other day I made a quick trip to the bathroom and came out to find Manny playing doctor. It was hilarious. I think he's so excited to have a playmate...I can't wait to see them interact in the months to come!
Manny is always front & center for diaper changes. He drags his stool in front of the changing table, and talks to her - sometimes plays with her hair, which is PRECIOUS - while we're changing her. Then we give him the diaper, and he goes and puts it in the diaper pail. He's all business & gets offended if you take that job from him.
Maeva is changing so much every day, but I do see a lot of resemblances to Manny. I love these pictures of them in their baby burritos. Manny was a little older than she was in this picture, but I still see some similarities.
Here's another video of Manny hanging out with her. This is pretty much how it is all day...he's always just hovering. :)
So there's a little update for the family that's been asking. :) Hope everyone enjoys the long weekend!
