2 Weeks Old

Hannah is already 2 weeks old! Time sure does go by fast. She has changed in 2 weeks too which is good but it reminds me how fast this newborn phase will be over. Her face has filled out a bit more and she is more alert. Numerous people have commented on how expressive she is and we do enjoy all of her faces. Hannah has had her first trip to the doctor and because she was already so far above her birth weight, she weighed 7 lbs, 4.5 oz, we didn't have to go back for a 2 week check-up. Hannah has also had her first walk in the neighborhood; first lunch out with Mom, Dad, Grandma and Grandpa J. at Panera; first bath which went very well with minimal crying; and newborn pictures taken (still waiting to get those back). Luke loves to give us updates on how she's doing and also give her lots of hugs and kisses.

I try to make a point of telling new parents to always treasure each and every moment--even the really tough ones. This has been my motto the last few days because we've definitely had some tough times the last few days. Hannah's schedule is non-existent. She is cluster feeding which means she eats about every 20 minutes for a long period of time and then goes a long period of time without eating. This isn't good for either of us especially in the middle of the night. I am hoping to get this figured out over the weekend because Troy goes back to work on Monday.
