Sophie Week 2 – 3/15 to 3/22

March 24, 2008

Well, our second week with our new sweetheart was great. We encountered a few bumps along the way, but nothing we won’t get through. Here are some of the highlights:

St. Patrick’s Day: Sophie’s first holiday was appropriately St. Patrick’s Day. We put some green beer in her bottle and she slept great! (Kidding – I’m just kidding! – Mom and Dad drank all the green beer!) So we all put on our green and took a family photo:

Visiting Nurse and Second Doctor Visit: On Wednesday we had the traveling nurse pay us a visit. She checked Sophie out and everything was great until she got on the scale:

Her weight went down to 5 lbs 9 oz, which is 4 oz less than last week. Then when we went to the doctor on Thursday the nurse put her on the scale and she weighed 7lbs. 6oz! We were excited, but didn’t really believe it, so the doctor put her on another scale and she really only weighed 5lbs 11oz. The first scale was all jacked up (apparently some toddler was messing around with it!) So the doctor gave us some ideas for how to increase Debbie’s milk, and were going to supplement her for a while until her weight comes up.

Debbie’s Family: On Wednesday Cousin Judy and her two children Jason and Carly paid us a visit to meet Sophie.  They got to hold her a little bit and then Jason read her a story while she ate some dinner.  Then Debbie’s parents arrived on late Thursday night and will be here to help us for about a month. So Sophie and Mom and Grammy went off to breast feeding support group on Friday morning. Then Friday afternoon we all got to hang out for Kevin’s last afternoon off from work.

Debbie’s Birthday: And finally we had what is now the second most important day of the year, Debbie’s Birthday. We all went to the Pacific Coast Grill for a late lunch on their outdoor patio, and Sophie was a very well behaved little girl, feeding and napping the whole time without crying at all. We made a quick stop in Del Mar for Sophie’s first trip to the beach, and then we headed home for some ice cream cake to finish off the day!

Sophie got her mama a nice locket keychain from Brighton so that mama can show her off all the time!

Here is an album with the rest of the photos from the week. I apologize for the excessive baby pictures, but she’s just too cute!
