Baby Steps

Isla Grace had a big day today. First- I fed her at 12:30am and went to bed. She didn’t wake up to eat again until 6:30!!!! Brian said she didn’t actually fall asleep until closer to 1:30ish, but still… I’ll take it.

She also had her 2 week checkup and is weighing in at a whopping 7lbs 11oz and has grown an inch. It’s crazy to me that she is over 2 weeks old and still weighs almost full pound less than Jack did AT BIRTH. But the most important thing is that she’s officially over her birth weight and therefore can sleep as long as she wants at night without us needing to wake her up to eat. Sweet.

After her appointment (which sucked, btw- she screamed through the whole thing), I picked up a salad at Zoe’s Kitchen to go.

I don’t know what the deal is, but I’ve been wanting Greek salads constantly lately. Post-pregnancy cravings?? Weird. Anyway, I love Zoe’s version because there’s a little hidden treasure of red potato salad at the bottom, and they package the grilled chicken & onions separately from the salad so they stay warm. Their light balsamic dressing is really good, too.

Tonight we actually ventured out to a restaurant with both kids- our first time to tackle this without my parentsĀ  for backup. It went okay. Isla fussed a little so we took turns rocking her in her carseat and eating. Evenings seem to be her awake/cranky time right now which makes dinner- either at home or out- a little tricky.

I had the chicken primavera with marinara sauce. Oh, and we ate at Lover’s in Casa Linda.

Obligatory daily baby photo.

She looks grumpy… probably because she had her heel pricked at the doctor for the PKU screen. It was traumatic for everyone involved.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! I’m off to eat that other cupcake from last night and catch up on Teen Mom.
