Happy 1 Week Peighton


Two days ago Peighton Joy turned ONE WEEK OLD! I don't know where time has gone, but she's already growing up too fast for me.

Peighton, your first week was very busy. You spent a lot of quality time with grandma and grandpa. Daddy had to go to work for a few weeks so you're getting spoiled by them and your GeeGee. In your first week......

We went to babies r us...3 times.
Went to the mall.
Shopped at Target.
Had your first doctor appointment.
Took over 700 pictures of you.
Shopped at Sam's with grandpa (this was a lot of fun for him).
Slept through the night several nights in a row.
Your umbilical cord fell off (gross...but glad it's gone)

This was your first outing...we went to babies r us with grandpa and grandma.
The day you turned one week old.
You are truly a bundle of JOY!
You're getting used to bath time. You LOVE when your hair is getting washed. GeeGee was giving you a bath here and you loved it. You did so good....next bath will be in a real baby bath since you lost your umbilical cord.
You loved being swaddled your first few days of life and now you want your hands out so you suck on your fingers. You also play with your hands and tickle your cheeks.
We had to take grandma and grandpa to the airport and say goodbye. It was very hard and you did not want them to leave.

On your one week birthday, it snowed! It also snowed the day you were born, but of course we didn't get to go outside and enjoy it. We went outside for a picture and then rushed back inside because it was very frigid.

1 week stats:
Birth weight: 8 lbs 3 oz.
left hospital: 7 lbs 12 oz.
5 days old: 7 lbs 14 oz.
Next weight check: this afternoon...will update later.

You love to sleep. You sleep about 3/4 of the day right now. You even sleep through the night....sometimes.

You love when the dogs are playing. You sit and stare at them when they are growling and making lots of noise.

When daddy calls I put him on speaker phone (without him knowing) your eyes get so big and you just stare. You love your daddy's voice :)

I try to make you sleep on your back like all the doctors say, but you always turn to your side. So we make sure to snuggle you tight with blankets so you won't move.

HAPPY ONE WEEK SWEET BABY GIRL!
