People constantly have been asking us how much Jayna weighs because she's still quite small and almost 7 weeks. Well, rather than saying, "We don't know." we've been guessing and saying she's 8 1/2 or 9 lbs. Well, we were wrong... She's still only 7 lbs 13 oz... Almost 2 months old and still not 8 lbs! Was this baby sent to the right family?! My word! She's still not even close to my birth weight! I must say that it's weird to see newborn babies that are bigger than Jayna.
Even though she's still small, we can definitely see her filling out and are loving seeing all of her new developments. She's starting to react to us a little bit more and is getting stronger and stronger (as if she wasn't strong enough to begin with!). She was laying across my lap the other day and got startled and sat straight up and just sat there! I freaked out when she shot up, so naturally my hands went to grab her, but then I noticed that she needed very little help. I think it was a freak thing, but still...!
I'm posting 2 bath pictures, one of which I've already posted, but I just wanted to show how much she's filling out! The first pic is taken at 3 1/2 weeks of age and the second is at 6 weeks... Huge difference in my eyes!
Needless to say, I think she likes the sink better.
Now that she is getting a little bigger, we've been trying to go on walks. I say trying! She doesn't love her stroller yet because even though her car seat attaches to it, it sits her up too far and it's uncomfortable for her. So we tried putting her in a sling and she hated that and then we tried our new nifty backpack thing-a-ma-jig... This was her reaction (ignore my horrendously bad hair day):
So, we're back to the stroller. I can't say I blame her... I wouldn't be comfortable practically doing the splits as I bounce up and down to my mom's footsteps either. Not comfortable at all!!! I guess we'll wait until she's a bit bigger and try again :)
I do love it when she does calm down and becomes my cute little snuggle bear. (Ok! That was cheesy!)
This last one I just have to share because it was such the perfect little pose for a picture.
