first stroller ride!

Lily had her two week doctor appointment on Wednesday! She is doing absolutely wonderful, her weight is up to 7 pounds already and she has grown and inch in length putting her at 19 inches long. The doctor let me know that I need to wait until she is four weeks old to take her out in public places around other people. He did however, tell me it was ok to take her on walks! This was so exciting for me because it would give us a chance to get out and get a little fresh air. We couldnt go too far since I am still recovering, but we had a great 30 min walk around the neighborhood. She absolutely loved it! She was wide eyed the whole time :) I am hoping to make it a daily thing atleast until the weather gets too cool.

One week old!

Thats right, our little ray of sunshine is one week old today! Wow what a week it has been, things still seem so surreal. Every time I look at Lily I still cannot believe that I am her mommy. I feel so lucky, to have her. I know that being a mother to her is and will always be my greatest accomplishment. Is it crazy that I look forward to waking up 3 times in the middle of the night? Just so I can hold her? We love our little squirt and can't wait to make many more memories :)

Some accomplishments we have made:

*Lily wakes up on her own every three hours to eat! She is so good!
*She had her first doctors appointment yesterday, and the doctor said she is doing perfect!
*current weight is 6lbs 2 oz (we are working on fattening her up)
*The past 3 nights she has slept in her bassinet
