2 weeks old!

We can't believe it's already been two weeks since Halle entered the world. Our little girl is growing up so fast!

Speaking of growing, we had our first appointment with the pediatrician today. Halle weighed in at 8 lbs, 2 oz and 21 inches long. That's a gain of almost a pound and 1.5 inches since birth. She's falling right in the middle on the growth charts (which are not very accurate at 2 weeks of age). We are obviously not starving!

Halle is also very alert. She can focus her eyes very well (especially on Mommy and Daddy's faces) and will track noise. She is usually awake during the mid-morning and evening and will sleep three- to four-hour stretches at night.

Halle can almost support her head by herself and loves to look around. She is usually pretty relaxed and only gets fussy when she's working on filling her britches!

Jim and I enjoy her so much - everything she does is fascinating to us. We are trying to capture as much of this time in her life as possible because we know it will be over too soon!

We love you "Little Snuggles"! Mommy and Daddy are so glad God decided to entrust you to us!
