Two Weeks!

Has it really been 2 weeks already?  (Actually, today, it's been 2 weeks and 1 day).  They say that time flies, but this is going a little fast!  People say the first 2 weeks are the hardest.  I think the first week was the hardest for us, and then we started adjusting.  This week has been no piece of cake with all the gas and pooping issues, but at least my hormones are starting to balance out, and I haven't bawled at every drop of a hat.

Cameron had a big week this week!  She got to meet her great-grandparents on Adam's side of the family, she met the Dr. who helped get her started, she went with mommy to her post-op appointment, and she had her 2 week appointment! 

We went for Cameron's 2 week appointment yesterday, and she is a growing girl!  She is weighing in at 8 lbs 15 oz (75th percentile) which means she is back up and has passed her birth weight (by 1 oz).  She has grown 1 & 1/4 inches since she was born also and is in the 77th percentile!  Her head measurements are actually smaller than when she was born, but she is in the 92nd percentile.  Our little girl is growing and we are pleased!

Since the "To Poop or Not to Poop" post, Cameron has gone from having constipation or struggling to go poop most days to yesterday having multiple dirty diapers in one day.  It seemed like every time she passed gas, there was something to go with it.  Today, it seems to be back to the not going to poop.  The Dr. wasn't concerned at this point and said that she just needs to train her little body how to go to the bathroom.  She said that it seems like her muscles haven't quite figured eveyrthing out, but she is getting there!  We did switch her formula to Enfamil Gentlease in hopes that it will help with the gas and pooping issues.  That stuff smells awful and she doesn't particularly care for the taste (that we can tell).

Over the past week, we have figured out a sleep schedule that works for us, but will probably disappear when Adam goes back to work in a week.  But, for now, it's working.  I'm hoping Cameron will start sleeping a little more at night and not wake every 2 1/2 to 3 hours to feed when Adam does go back to work, but we will continue going on her needs.

We have moved our bedroom completely into the living room for the time being.  I expect that within the next week or so, we will move it back and try to start transitioning her to the crib.  Gotta use that expensive piece of bedroom furniture that has been hanging out in there for over a year!


Overall, a descent week!  Here are some photos from this week...

Chillaxing in the bassinet!

Went to see the great-grandparents - 9/24/2011

Went to mommy's post-op appointment - 9/28/2011

With all the pooping issues...diaper changes are NOT fun!

Desmond wants to know why she's screaming...

Daddy made fun of the bottom lip being stuck out when sleeping on her belly for a little nap.

I'm awake and I'm smiling!

Cameron is such a cutie! I am glad to hear that she is growing so well and that her tummy issues are resolving. Don't those tummy cries make you feel helpless?? I smiled when I read that you had moved your bedroom to the living room. We ended up doing the same thing for the first two months. Now I am considering moving into the nursery to get her used to her crib. I can't wait to meet up! Maybe in November or December?

She looks so much like her Mama - so sweet and beautiful!

I'm so glad she is growing and thriving! The days may seem long - but before you know it weeks have passed! Then months! Soak up every little moment. I'm sure you are!

Hey Danae! Just wanted to reply to your comments on my blog :)

I use about 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil (just enough to drizzle on top of the chicken and veggies) and I bake uncovered at 380 for 1 hour. About halfway through I usually check on it and stir the veggies.

For the wine, I eyeballed it but I would guess I used about 1/3 cup. Depending on the pan size, I think I had about 1/3 inch of wine in the bottom of the pan.

Let me know how you guys like it! :)
