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:
