2 Week Update...

Length: We went to the doctor today and the official measurement is 20 inches. This confirms my suspicions that I cannot accurately measure a wiggly baby but I'll still try :)
Weight: 7 POUNDS!!!!!!!
Feeding Schedule: She's still eating about every three hours and now wakes up on her own during the night when she gets hungry. She's gone from eating about an ounce and a half to almost three ounces at each feeding. I'm still pumping and feeding her by bottle since I have had mastitis for the last few days. My goal is to start breast feeding during the day next week and only bottle feed at night.
Sleeping Schedule: She's been awake more during the day during the last week. We get about 45 minutes to a hour and a half after a feeding where she's pretty alert and looking all over. During the night she sleeps great in-between feedings but it's rough getting her back to sleep after she eats. We're getting sleep in 2 1/2 hour increments right now and looking forward to longer stretches in the (hopefully) near future.
Milestones: She's holding her head up really well when we burp her, wiggling around on the tummy time mat, and focusing on faces when you hold her.
Best Moment This Week: Holding her on my chest last night after feeding her, she snuggled up against me and it was so sweet :)
Parenting Wisdom: Use Dove soap instead of J&J to prevent dry skin, don't leave a naked butt unattended or pee and poo will surely follow, take any help you can get around the house, and find a way to see your family and friends instead of being locked up in the house all the time.
