One and a bit monthiversary
Baby Emily is six-or-seven-weeks old already! Time flies with the second child. She's been an easy baby so far - or maybe it just seems that way since we're old pros at this whole baby thing. yeeah.
She was born four weeks early on June 24 and weighed 6 lbs 10 oz. She was 6 lbs 3 oz. when she left the following day. At her one month appointment, she was a whopping 8 lbs 11 oz. - this baby's been real busy growing! Caitlin was 8 lbs 13 oz at one month, so she's caught up to her big sister already. She currently spends most of her days eating and napping, and wakes up once in the middle of the night to eat. It's hard to tell how she's doing on developmental milestones but I do wonder if she'll be behind since she was a preemie.
It's not clear from the picture, but she has the most extraordinary light gray eyes. They'll probably turn brown later on, considering her genetics (I have brown and Dave has hazel), but it would be so cool if they stayed that way.
