Week one

I can’t believe this little girl is already one week old.  She is a such a blessing to our family.  Gavin and Mikayla have adjusted very nicely to having a new baby in the house.  They both just love to hold her and love on her.

We had her one week check up on Tuesday, July 5th (my due date!)  She weighed 7 pound 1 oz, was 19 3/4 inches long and had a 14 inch head circumference.  Everything checked out perfectly!

We are having some issues with breastfeeding which have been a little frustrating for me.  We met with a lactation consultant yesterday and I got lots of helpful information.  We had one really good feeding, but then met with some challenges after that.  We are still working on it and at least I know that Miss Brooke is capable of breastfeeding.  We’ll get it!

He are some pics from her first week:


First bottle from Daddy – I just love watching him with our children.


We are ready to go home from the hospital!!


First bath! (She was not a huge fan.)


Great Grandma and Great Grandpa get some good cuddles with Miss Brooke.  I think my grandma could have held her for hours. Smile
