2 Weeks Old
Baby Lucie turned two weeks old yesterday. She had her 2-Week check-up and passed with flying colors. She weighs a whopping 9 pounds, 0.5 ounces -- more than Ella did at this age and Ella started out heavier! Her eyes seem more gray than blue now, so perhaps they will keep changing. I've actually seen her smile a bit this week too. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to catch it on camera though. She only seems to smile when I'm holding her and not the camera. But, I guess more smiles will come with time...and you can bet I'll be posting pics then.
This week we were on our own. Nanna left last Saturday, and I felt up to the challenge to try this parenting two kids thing on my own. So far, so good. Ella adores her little sister. Now instead of saying "I'm hungry" first thing in the morning, she says "Where's our baby?" (And then she says, "I'm hungry.") Really, the only problem is trying to monitor her sometimes too intense loving actions towards her sister and keep her voice down a bit -- more for my sake than for Lucie's. Fortunately, Lucie knew from Day 1 how to sleep through her very active sister's noise -- I guess she knew from the womb how loud her sister could be.
