Life with Isla

I can't believe we've had little Isla for two weeks already.

It has been such an incredible experience. I can't help myself from going into her room 20 times while she's sleeping just to look at her cute little expressions.

What we've been up to:

lots and lots of sleeping

She always has her hands up by her face - especially when she's sleeping. I've learned that she would prefer to sleep with someone holding her.....but she's a pretty good sleeper in the bassinet too.

a bath

Isla sorta likes the bath. She likes just sitting in the warm water (she also likes pooping in the warm water) but she doesn't like it when we start scrubbing her. As soon as we put her in the bath the first time she put her right leg over the mesh holder and right into the bath. It was too cute. It looked like she was just lounging at the pool.

two visits to the doctor

Short Bryan and I have a long and skinny daughter. She was in the 90th percentile for length and 38th percentile for weight. This will probably be the last time she'll be considered, i'm trying to explain to her that she needs to appreciate it while it lasts. I don't think she gets it.

cuddling with family

She's had a lot more visitors but taking pictures has been the last thing on my mind. I really need to start doing better!
My mom and dad came for Isla's first two weeks and just left Friday. It was so nice to have my mom take care of me and Isla. I pretty much didn't do anything but feed Isla and put her to bed. Mom took care of everything else.

First two weeks have been pretty amazing!
