chronicle of Ginny at two weeks

Let’s see.  Ginny will be officially on day 14 of her life as of 1:45 a.m. tonight.  I can’t believe it’s already been two weeks.

She’s so different already and yet she is still Ginny. 

Here is a photo of Ginny next to MAK (her teddy bear). MAK positively dwarfed Ginny during their first photo shoot two weeks ago. now? not so much.

Ginny’s favorite new trick is trying to turn on her stomach.  She makes it about halfway over.  Mostly while mommy is trying to sleep and then Mommy wakes up and see’s Ginny is almost over on her face and Mommy panicks!  The doc said to use tightly rolled blankets or firm pillows on each side of her to keep her from rolling.  So far that is working and Mommy can sleep relatively worry free.

The goal for any new born during the first two weeks is to regain the weight they lost right after birth.  Ginny has done that and more.  She started at 5 pounds 1 ounce, dropped to 4 pounds 13 ounces and now is back up to BEYOND her birthweight at 5 pounds and 3 ounces.  YAY!!!!  I’m greatful that she has started so small though, as it makes her easier for me to hold and get used to.  AS she gains weight, I will strengthen so by the time she reaches a truly heavy weight I’ll be able to handle it.

Here’s some more photos for the fans:

oh, one more thing.  I don’t normally post photos of my craft work, but this turned out so well I just had to share. It is a necklace and earrings that I made for Mel.  The stones all represent her first three children (birth stones of Emerald, Jasper and Lapis), and the pendant depicts a man and woman holding a child close to their hearts, which is representative of Mel and Steve and how they feel about Ginny.

  1. Awesome pictures. TOmorrow—sigh. Don’t forget all I have is arrival time. Don’t yet have flight information, i.e. line and flight number! You were emailing them yesterday???

    See you soon.

  2. I have set of baby chalks you can have. They are these little things that velcro onto a pad that lays under the baby and the chalks keep the baby snug in just the right position.
    Send me your address and I will drop them off – what day do you get home?
