three weeks old

Sweet Ellie is three weeks old already! She just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter. On Monday we went to the doctor for her two week appointment (a few days late). She is weighing 7 lbs 11 oz and 21 inches long. She’s in the 77 percentile for height and 11 percentile for weight. She’s our tall and skinny girl! E had to have her heel pricked for the PKU test. She screeeeeamed and cried and I cried right along with her. Poor girl.
We had a few fussy nights, poor little girl had an upset stomach. She definitely wore us out! Now she’s back to her schedule, thank heavens, and we’re back to getting a little more sleep. E and I had a little girls night last night and went to the mall. We still can’t find anything that fits her skinny little body! (Why do they only sell preemie clothes online?) For now she has about six outfits that fit her and she goes through at least two a day. We do a lot of laundry around here. 🙂
I love being a mom to our sweet E. I wouldn’t trade it for any other job in the world!
