I can’t believe Eleanor is 2 weeks old!!!! I’m sure I will be saying this every week of her life! I am trying to stop and savor every single moment because I know it is going to go by so fast. I have already spent time crying about the fact that she looks bigger already! haha!
I had this picture on my phone and I had to share it…..it is the last picture we have of Eleanor in my tummy! This was right before we went into labor & delivery. This picture means so much to me!
I wanted to just share a little bit about Eleanor……
She is the sweetest little thing ever! We are smitten by her.
She has the most expressive hands! She is always doing crazy things with her arms and hands. And everyone comments on how long her fingers are. Girlfriend will hopefully like the piano!
My favorite time with Eleanor is when she takes a nap on my chest. I wouldn’t mind if she stayed there all day. That is also Tim’s favorite time with her too.
Newborn clothes are ginormous on E!!!! It is so hard to find preemie clothes in the stores. My parents went out to buy what they could find. They fit her good, except for the length.
We are trying to get the hang of things around our house. Her doctor told us that since she was a preemie, she is still developing and to be patient. For instance, she wasn’t suppose to develop her ability to suck until 37 weeks. The doctor said she will be a slow breastfeeder too because of that. So, we are being patient and just enjoying our time while she is so tiny!
Sleep is something she is kind of half & half on. Some nights are fine and other nights are ugh…..not so fine! haha! I am on the hunt for sleep tips and I just purchased The Happiest Baby on the Block book too.
I am in love with all the faces she makes! They are so sweet and some are sooooo funny! I just stare at her.
For being a preemie she is an excellent eater! We have not really had any problems breastfeeding yet. I sure hope it stays that way. That time is so precious!
Those are just a few of the tons of pictures I have taken of our little peanut in the past 2 weeks! Tim and I are constantly taking pictures of her with our cell phones!
Oh and did I mention I love being a mom?
It’s the greatest feeling and everyday is so special. I am completely exhausted. But just one look at my baby and just one little cuddle……it makes all the tiredness worth it!!!! I am just trying to cherish every moment.
