Faith’s 2-Week Check-Up, and a Visit to Work!

Faith had her 2-week check-up a few days ago.   She’s doing great!  She has grown to 21 3/4 inches long.  She has gained back her weight at birth, plus 4 ounces.  So she now weighs 8 pounds 4 ounces.  Breastfeeding has taken up the majority of my day, and night.  When I’m not feeding her, I try to nap, or do chores.  I have been able to pump a little breast milk to have on hand when we take Faith out briefly, but I never have enough milk pumped for outings with her for long durations.  She’s not even 3 weeks old, and hasn’t had any of her vaccinations yet, so I also want to try and avoid exposing her to large groups of people for long amounts of time.  For now, it’s better for Faith, and me, if friends and family stop by to visit us at home.

However, I am starting to get cabin fever, and I enjoy the brief spurts of time we get to go out.  One day, after one of Faith’s feedings, we decided at the spur of the moment to go and see my co-workers.  We got really lucky, too; everyone was there at the same time!  When we got there, they were all waiting.  I missed them so much.  I know they have been wanting to see Faith ever since she was born.  They have all watched my tummy grow, week after week, month after month, and have all been there through my aches and pains.  They’re like family.  I’ve seen them every work week for 12 years!  I was just as excited to have them see and hold baby Faith as they were.

My boss, Joel was the first to hold Faith.  I loved seeing everyone hold her.  I never would have thought that some day they would all be holding my baby.  It touched my heart to see them smiling, and taking pictures.  I miss them all, more than ever.

Aaron has been so helpful.  He watches Faith while I take naps, and it really helps me be not so tired during those 2 and 3am feedings that last for a few hours.  The other night Faith woke me up around 2am, and I didn’t go back to sleep until after 5am.  This is a nightly routine with her, usually.   One morning I was making my mug of coffee, and I started the microwave to heat it up… only I forgot to put the mug in there.  Lack of sleep = extreme absent mindedness!One day I was napping, and Aaron was watching Faith in the living room.  When I woke up, I saw this …
