Sawyer's First Week at Home

It's hard to believe that this time last week we were bringing Sawyer home from the hospital.  This week has flown by...partly because we are sleep deprived, but partly because its been so fun being a mom - even at 3 am.  She is already 9 days old!

She has had quite the busy week.

She met her Uncle Adam, Aunt Melissa and her cousin Abigail...



And her great grandma, Mimi (this one is from today - she already looks older to me!)



She had her first trip to the doctor...


She weighed 6 pounds.  Almost back up to her birth weight, and the doctor said he color looked good so we didn't have to do another blood test for jaundice - we are just watching her until we go back on Friday.

Had her first bath...



Did some sun bathing...


And LOTS of sleeping.  In her swing...


In her bouncy chair...


And on her daddy's chest - her favorite place.  The feeling is VERY mutual!



She is such a sweet baby.


She hardly cries, except for when she is cold or hungry.  And she smiles all the time!  Mostly in her sleep - this is one of my favorite pictures!


She is a great sleeper at night too.  We have to wake her every 3-4 hours to feed her.


As for the rest of us, Lori is getting used to everything...


And still wanting all of our attention and being crazy!


I am feeling pretty good.  Sawyer and I are working to get the nursing thing down.  It has taken us a while. I posted last week that she was doing a good job nursing and using a bottle - I lied.  She was getting spoiled by the bottle so we are working on that - but she is getting MUCH better!  She hasn't had a bottle in almost 2 days - which means Barry gets to sleep at night!  I feel like I am almost back to normal.  I even got my old jeans on yesterday - by no means were they buttoned, but they were on!  I have taken a couple quick trips to Target and even went to the mall for about an hour today with my mom, sister and grandma.  Barry has been great and loves to keep Sawyer by himself so I can have some time to myself.  I am itching to start doing some walking and being active again - but its waaaaay too cold to take a newborn outside.  Hoping it will warm up a little this week.

All in all I would say our first week has been pretty successful!  I just can't believe its already come and gone.  Here's to another good week!
