Two Week Check-Up

It is hard for me to believe that Mia Kate is already two weeks old! (The last 2 weeks of my pregnancy definitely did not go by this quickly!) She is such a little doll! All of her brothers and sisters adore her. She is such a great baby for us. She loves to be held and will sleep and sleep, as long as she is in loving arms. She has been a great nurser and by her weight today it seems she is getting enough to eat. The recovery was very easy with her, too. As far as weight loss-- I always wonder how after the baby is born it is possible to lose less weight than what the baby weighed. My first day home I decided to weigh myself and shouldn't have been surprised to see a total loss of 5 lbs. Two weeks later I am down 20 lbs. --which would be GREAT if I only gained the average 20-25 lbs. but no ... I still have another 30 lbs. to go! It is so fun to have Mia in our family. I just wish I could slow down time! Instead I will just have to try and cherish each moment with her and all my other little munchkins!

Mia is adorable. And 20 lbs is great! It always takes me about 6 months to lose that much after a baby! I love the head being small, both my girls heads are barely on the chart! I think they look even bigger too, because of the no hair!
