Elle and Amber Update

So I just thought that I would give a little update on the girls. Amber is doing a little better everyday with adjusting to being a big sister. She slowly (very slowly) starting to let me get a few feet away from her without panicking. She has been a good helper when it comes to Elle, she loves to help if it is for Elle.
Now to Elle. She had a doctors appointment yesterday and has grown a lot. I was guessing that she would weigh around 7lb. 10oz. or so but I was way off. She weighed in at 8lb. 14oz. In the 3 weeks and 2 days since her birth she has gained 2 pounds. I could tell that she was chunking up but wow. She also grew in her length to 22 inches which puts her in the 91% for her age. So as you can see she is just getting bigger and bigger. Oh how time goes by too fast. She is starting to have a schedule which is nice. I am still adjusting to it myself. Eventually we will be able to be ready for the day before 10:30-11:00.
She wanted to wear this apron that was given to me while we made cookies. On her it looks like a dress, but she sure does look cute and domestic.

Just look at those cheeks!

Mother of two

It has now been two whole weeks since Elle was born and let me tell you it is a different world at my house. I feel like a slacker in a way because I don't get a lot done around the house anymore. It is a little frustrating and I know that it is to be expected in the beginning but I still have a hard time letting everyone else do the jobs I normally do. I guess I should enjoy my break. Amber has really had her world turned upside down and won't let me out of her sight anymore, not even to go to the bathroom. I think she is afraid I will leave. It has been hard on both of us. I just hope that she will let others help her and play with her soon. She really loves to hold and kiss her baby sister. Elle is doing great, just getting bigger and chunkier. She is a good mellow baby. All in all things are going well.
