Our Second Week With Miley

Grandma Grimmett was here for the second week after Miley was born. She got to visit Maisey's preschool and take her to the Children's museum. She also took Gage to go visit her niece, Jenny. It was nice too have her here to help with the big kids once Daddy went back to work.

Miley started spitting up quite a bit this week. In the mornings it seems to be pretty watery and very projectile. But by the evening it's all curdled and sour smelling. It's pretty gross! 

Besides the spitting up, nursing is getting a lot better. I still don't love it, but we are surviving. I'd say this is the best it's gone out of all three kids though! 

She is a great sleeper at night! She usually only wakes up once a night to eat. I can definitely handle that! Her naps during the day vary. Sometimes she sleep three hours in her crib, and sometimes she won't let me put her down. I'm sure it'll all work out in the next few months! 

Miley's umbillical cord stump thing fell off this week! YAY! I always think those things are so gross looking.

At Miley's 2 week checkup she was 8 lbs. 5.5 oz. (53%) and 20 1/4 in (53%) and a head circumference of 34.5 (18%). I love her cute little head. 

Miley got to meet her Aunt Judy from Idaho this week. And we took her on our first family outing. After we met Judy and other family for lunch, we went to the mall and to the carousel! She pretty much slept the whole time, but it was still a big deal to me to take three kids out in public! Whew!

We also went to visit Papa who lives in heaven for Memorial day! This was Miley's first time going to the cemetery. 

And on Sunday, I braved church! At two weeks old, I was hoping she would just sleep through the whole thing. Nope! She was bright-eyed all of Sacrament meeting, just looking all around and soaking it all in. And Shaun had to bless the sacrament, so on our first Sunday at church with three kids, I flew solo for the first half hour! Eeeek! 

On Memorial day, we went to a BBQ at a friend's house. Miley had her first bottle ever and seemed to do just fine. But that night was the worst night we had had since we had been home from the hospital. She was up ALL night. :( Makes me nervous to give her another bottle.

Gage was surrounded by girls all week, but he didn't seem to mind too much. He just joined right in!

Chubby cheeks after her 2 week check up!

This pony was outside of the carousel!

Gage was pretty tuckered out at the mall!

First day going to church!

We survived the second week!
