Today we went to Charlotte’s two week appointment. I can’t believe she is already two weeks old (tomorrow), yet I can’t imagine ever not having her here with us. It’s exciting… I feel like we are just starting to get a little rhythm down. I’m sure it will change tomorrow, but for today, it feels great!
The doc had only good things to say about our sweet girl’s development. She weighed in at 9 lbs, 6.5 oz and is 21.9″… 88% for weight, 99% for height. Her short parents reminded her to cherish her “tall status” because it probably won’t last long. Doc said that her high numbers are likely due to the fact that she was so late and is sooooo developed 🙂 haha okay, I’m not going to be that person who pretends their baby is so advanced. But nearly 20 extra days have her a little leg up. That and she’s a milk monster. Girlfriend loves to eat just like her parents.
After our appointment, my parents happened to be out to lunch, so we met up with them for a bite. Charlotte was perfection at her first lunch outing. Slept like a sweet angel through the whole meal. We ate at a golf club, so after lunch, my mom and I took her into the women’s locker room so she could have a little lunch. She ordered two boobs of milk for lunch, but not before pooping all over 4 diapers, her blanket and the locker room carpet. While that sounds bad, it actually felt somewhat successful.
Two boobs was just enough to keep sweet Charlotte sleepy and dazed for our first trip to the grocery store. Again, not a peep out of the little one. We were even able to make a stop to pick up some makeup for me on the way home AND, after unloading the groceries and transferring her to her bassinet, hubs and I got to nap. This is one very well behaved little lovey.
I love that sweet face!!! I am so happy things are going well for you!!! I totally understand the awesomeness that is routine- and then the surprise of the next day when everything changes!! I hope these sleepy outtings stick around for you and Charlotte!
Thank you! How are you and Elliot doing?
Well, for the most part good- for the not so most part I can’t say it’s been super easy…blog post to come 😉
