    Cloud 9 Emmaleigh/Update (Somewhat IMG heavy)

    Some of you may have noticed that I haven't been on here much. Ive been too busy falling in love with Emmaleigh. This will be long, because I seem to have baby word-vomit
    I feel like life is complete. Honestly. We struggled a little in the beginning but I think we were just learning all about each other.

    I was terrified of my husband going back to work after being home with us for about 11 days, but he went back yesterday, and it was essentially smooth sailing all day. The only thing we haven't mastered yet is me actually sleeping in a bed. Ive been sleeping in the recliner, her in her rock and play next to me, and DH on the couch. But that is mostly because, in the middle of the night, I don't feel like getting up and coming into the living room to use the recliner to nurse. I also sleep heavier when I am in bed and have a little more trouble hearing her wake up. She isnt a crier, so if she needs something she will fuss for sometimes 45 minutes before she starts crying. I dont like to let her go that long before she gets what she needs, so for right now, we are sleeping this way. It works for us. DH has no problem with it. We are hoping to only do this for a couple more weeks before we move to the bedroom where she will sleep in her crib.

    She is sometimes difficult to rouse to eat in the night, so I think I am going to ask the doctor at her 2 week appointment on friday (can you believe she is already two weeks old tomorrow?! Where has the time gone) if she is able to sleep a little longer between feedings at night. She is already steadily going three hours all of the time and seems very content with that.

    After she was born, she had high bilirubin and it got to the point where we were going to the hospital for rechecks daily. She had to wear a BiliBlanket for a day, which made me bawl my eyes out, but she is doing MUCH better. A week after her birth, she was back to a non-scary level of bili and she was already above her birth weight and gaining about 2-3 ounces per day.

    Okay, I think that is enough of an update
    Now on to photos!! I have no clue why she is making that face in the second picture, but I thought it was hilarious and Im glad I got it in a picture!
    She's perfect

    She's gorgeous! My ped told us that as long as their back to their birth wait you can stop waking them to feed but of course check with yours first. I'm glad things are going so well!

    She is super cute. I never woke my babies to eat. I let them sleep until they were hungry.
