Our featherweight is now entering the lightweight division!

We went for Joley's two week check up yesterday and were shocked to see that she now weighs a whopping 6 pounds, 10 ounces, which means she has gained a pound and a half in the last two weeks! This breast feeding business is actually working! She also grew half an inch in length and her little head grew an inch and a half. The doctor told us we could let her sleep at night as long as she wanted...which means that last night, I got a whole 5 consecutive hours. It was truly glorious. The doctor had to cauterize her belly button and we're still waiting for that last part to fall off so we can give her the first official bath. Yesterday was also the first day Luke went back to work for the whole day, and despite being a little nervous and sad as he left, the day went well. Here are a couple of pictures from Aunt Mary Ellen's visit and our first outing to the Charbonneau's super bowl party.

Joley and Marcus...he was very concerned any time Joley or Harper cried and would come see if he could help out.

Her little kimono outfit almost fits her now.

Baron and Tuffy stand guard but know not to break the threshold of the nursery room door.

Look at how alert I am for Aunt Mary Ellen's visit.

Sweet Aunt Mary Ellen visits her grand-niece for the first time.


  1. Courtney, she is beautiful! We are so happy for you and Luke. She looks so much like both of you!!

  2. okay I dont know how but the second to last picture on Joley looks like Amelia! Am I crazy??

  3. I think around the eyes and nose, maybe? I love your recent pics of Amelia wearing the knitted hat and the one with the Rolling Stones shirt.
