2 weeks and 5 days

This is how long it has been since I had our perfect little girl and although I am still getting use to her schdual and still trying to figure out what her cries mean it has been the best time of my life. I spend hours just watching her as she is staying awake more and trying to interact more it is amazing to me how I carried this little girl for so long feeling all her movements from inside and then on June 27th she was in my arms and now she is just growing fast.

I was a little dissapointed and said when I had to give up breastfeeding because I wasn't producing enough milk for her and after trying all the tricks to increase milk supply I was still not having any luck but she seems to be doing great on formula and is really growing. She was 7 pounds 8 ounces and 19.5 inches at birth, three days later she was 6 pounds 12 ounces and on June 11th at her 2 week appointment she was 7 pounds 12 ounces and 20 3/4 inches long and then June 15 th at another appointment she was a whole 8 pounds 7.5 ounces and 21 inches long.

It's hard to imagine how big of a difference just a few days can make with a new born and I don't want to miss any of it. This is my first baby and she is my little blessing after being told for 3 years I would never be able to have kids and after having 1 miscarriage. I am so blessed to have my wonderful daughter and could not ask for more.

Mine and my husbands lives have changed but it's been in the best way possible. We could not be happier to have a family and be raising our little girl together and giving her all the love she needs. And I love watching him with her because most of the time he don't want to let her go and just wants to be with her. He has been so great taking care of her on days off and sitting up with her at night so I can get some sleep. I couldn't have asked for a better dad for my little girl.

And even in almost 3 weeks I have learned we will have some trials with our little girl and nights were she don't want to sleep or is up more often but when I look at her and see her big smile and wonderful face I know it is all worth it. I can't imagine not having my daughter and I know all I can do is be the best mother to her I possibly can and always be there for her no matter what and give her all the love imaginable.
