Chuck and Jim came over today to see her and she slept the whole time! She woke up shortly after and ate and then had some hanging out time. She's asleep again. This outfit is also borrowed from Emily - they are adorable.

Swing - Two Weeks


In the swing, on Friday. Two weeks old! The outfit is borrowed from Emily, her little Violet is five weeks older than Maria and already has moved out of her newborn clothes.

In an outfit from my cousins Michael and Terri - when we got it we were afraid it wouldn't fit because it's Newborn, 5-8 pounds. But it's perfect and I put her in it as often as possible. It fits her well and it's the only thing she has that her hands and feet don't get all lost in. Plus it's super soft and fleecy and warm.

Mike took this


I asked him to, since I never have any photographic evidence that I'm ever with these children!

8, 14

She is always sleeping in all these pictures but she sleeps a lot! I could have snapped a few shots at 2:00 this morning, I suppose, when she was wide awake, but we were upstairs and the camera was downstairs. Mike took her in for her one week weight check and she's back up to 8,14, so that's good. They are supposed to gain back to their birth weight by two weeks so it's reasonable to think she'll gain 8 ounces in 7 days. She was 8,8 when we left the hospital on Monday.

Maria, sleeping


She sleeps a lot. She has slept more in her first five days than Anthony did in his first five months. NOT TO COMPARE or anything but it's all we have to go by. You can see her birthmark in this picture and also that her clothes are enormous on her. She weighs almost nine pounds! I guess maybe it's because she's really long or something, or maybe because she never straightens out her legs but she is swimming in most of her clothes.

Maria Kathleen


In recovery, so maybe an hour old? We didn't take our camera in the delivery room. It's too crazy in there, I don't know how anyone does it. She weighed 9 lbs., 6 oz., and was 21 1/4" long. She yelled but never like Anthony did. We took way more pictures of her in the hospital than we did Anthony. We got her home yesterday, 1/14, around noon, after some nonsense in the hospital about her losing too much weight. People are idiots - this stupid pediatrician at the hospital saw her for like two seconds and decided she would maybe be in danger of dehydration in the future if she didn't start to nurse a lot, once my milk came in. At first I was going to do whatever she said, because I really wanted to get home, but then I got myself together and told her that we would just take her to see her pediatrician today and we bugged out of there. We went to her doctor this morning and she gained 3 oz. overnight so things are good. She is sleeping and eating a lot and not much else. Her clothes are *gigantic* on her, though, which is so weird. Anthony never had long sleeves but man - her little hands get so lost in the sleeves of her clothes and she gets kind of frustrated. Anyway, here she is.
