Two Weeks Old!

Morgan is two weeks old! And we fall more in love with her every day. She's getting a bit used to the wipe-down baths, so she doesn't scream and holler as much when she's getting them. I'm ready for the umbilical cord thingy to fall off, though -- I'm ready for her first real bath! Plus, she has the cutest little tub; I can't wait to try it out.

She seems to be hungry a little more, so I'll be asking the pediatrician tomorrow about increasing her ounces per feeding. I talked with a friend of mine that had a baby a month before me, and her baby was eating three, sometimes four, ounces at this point. She was two pounds heavier than Morgan at birth, though, so I'll see what the pediatrician says first.

We have no more help! :-) My mom was with us the first week, and my mother-in-law was here the second (we have great moms!). Danny and I tried to do a lot on our own when they were here so we wouldn't go into shock when we were finally alone with her. So far, it's been fine. The only thing is Morgan has her days and nights mixed up -- pretty typical, I guess. But we're working on that. We're trying all kinds of things and are hoping to have something worked out in a few weeks. I'd like to have her on a good schedule by the time I go back to work.

Back to work...ugh. :-( It makes me sad to think that in just FOUR WEEKS, I'll be taking my six-week old baby to daycare! I guess not having a choice makes it a little bit easier...but I pray that my obsessive-compulsiveness about her eases up by then. I'd be going crazy at work not knowing how she's doing. And I know I'll do that anyway, but I hope it's just not so bad. Because if she were to go to daycare right now, I'd be a straight nutcase...

Morgan and I both go to the doctor tomorrow. She's going for a two-week check-up (after that, the next one is at two months). My appointment is actually a week earlier than it should be. I'll be out of town at the three-week point, so I've asked my doctor to see me a week ahead of time...just to be sure I'm healing like I should be. I definitely plan to go back as soon as I get back.

We're going to Nashville for the WCA Cheer and Dance National Championship, an event we work every year. It's usually Danny, my in-laws, my mom, and me that goes on this "work trip." This year is different. I'm not working. My mom isn't going at all. And we obviously have a new little person going with us. I'm nervous about being away from home for the first time. When I think hotel, I think GERMS. Ugh. But my pediatrician approved the trip, so I couldn't argue with my husband (who has been insisting we go for months). And I always said that she'd have to be at least three weeks old for us to go...and she will be. Darn it.

And then I think we're going to New Orleans right after that for the Sugar Bowl. By that time I shouldn't be so obsessed with her being okay. I LOVE New Orleans VERY much, and am definitely looking forward to revisiting. I'm curious to see how the city has changed since I went 10 years ago, and after Katrina. I fell in love with the rich culture of New Orleans when I was 15 years old, so I'm sure I'll appreciate it even more as an adult.

Well, I have to go finish Christmas cards that I should've sent last week! And I haven't wrapped one present. And Christmas dinner is at our house, so I need to do some cleaning and stuff. Lots to do, obviously -- gotta go! Still loving life, though! It doesn't get any better!
