Ok, so this post has nothing to do with ketchup but everything to do with catching up. Today, Ella is 3 weeks old (there will be a Today I Am... photo a little later as well as some other photos taken over the past week). Here is a run down on our life the past week:
* Ella had her two week appointment with the pediatrician last Thursday. She weighed in at a whopping 7lbs 4oz. This was such a shock because she had dropped down to 5lbs 11oz and eating really competes with her sleep. I was lucky if she would eat for more than 5 minutes at a time. She has also grown 2 inches. She is now 21 inches long! Until this past weekend I was having to set the alarm at night to wake Ella up to eat. She is now waking up on her own every 3 hours to eat. She is doing GREAT! Ella really made an impression on the doctor. While she was being weighed she decided she would go to the bathroom all over the scale. It brought about a good laugh for all!
* Ella went to visit her GiGi at work following her doctor's appointment. She slept the entire time.
* All of the hurricanes and tropical storms are causing havoc with my mom and stepdad's travel plans to come and see their newest granddaughter. They were supposed to be leaving FL this Thursday, but due to Gustav, Hannah, Ike and the newest storm out there, their travel plans are now on hold.
* Ella made her first trip to the bookstore over the weekend and came home with two new books. Daniel and I started reading to her each day while I was pregnant and have tried to continue to do so.
All else is well in Cooley world! No big plans for this week....just waiting on Na-Na and Papa to show up!
