More of Our Bailey

Here are some more pictures of our newest little girl. We have had a great couple of weeks with her and we have slipped right back into newborn mode! Not that we love it all the time (read: middle of the night), but it has been great, too! With Avery I was so stressed all the time and always worried that she wasn't eating enough. Why didn't God give breastfeeding mothers some kind of gauge? I had Craig buy a baby scale online with her so I would know if she was gaining enough. Well, with Bailey, I haven't had to worry. This girl is a pooping machine! She constantly has a dirty and wet diaper and she has already gained 1 pound and 5 ounces since we left the hospital! Remember that babies lose some of their birth weight, so she was down to 7 lbs. 7 oz. when we left the hospital, and yesterday according to our scale, she weighed 8 lbs. 12 oz.!!! She is a hoss! Although she still looks little and sweet. :) I am so much more relaxed this second time around and it's nice! Avery still loves her little sister. She kisses her every chance she gets and has to stroke her cheek whenever she can. She always greets her in the morning and when she wakes up from a nap or even if one of them enters the room. It's really sweet. Craig has been off of work all this week and so far I have not been left alone with the two of them to depend on only me! I may be writing a different post next week. :)
