Ava Grace really started settling into a schedule this past week! She usually stays awake between at least 2 daytime feedings and she sleeps great at night! She eats every three hours like clockwork, and we really enjoy the reliability of that! This week she still had to have sponge bath's, even though her umbilical stump finally fell off! I was kind of freaking out aboutherittlestump before it fell off because it looked sore and was bleeding a little and I wanted it to fall off when her Daddy was here so I wouldn't have to deal with it by myself. Her little belly button cooperated! Early last Sunday morning Ava Grace woke up for her breakfast and I got her out of the bassinet and brought her to bed with us to feed her and snuggle! We were piled in the bed watching TV and playing with AG! She spit up a little on our sheets and then when I changed her diaper she peed on the sheets too (lol)! Soo... we all got up and as we were climbing out of bed to strip the sheets we noticed her little cord was gone! We looked and looked and couldn't find it anywhere! Late Sunday night I stepped on it in the bedroom floor and said, "Ava Grace! I found your belly button!!" lol
The pediatrician cauterized the place where her little stump fell off on Monday... he said it'd make for a pretty belly button and help it heal up super fast, but no tub baths til the end of the week! This resulted in a couple more sponge baths - NOT her favorite! What do you think about those eyes.... blue? brown? What will they be?
I have been waiting to have her newborn photos until her belly button heals up, 'cause I want some cute naked baby pictures! ;-) We'll get those taken this week, but I had to take some cute week 2 shots of our little angel!
She is the softest, sweetest thing EVER!
I love her tiny fingers...
...and tiny toes (my favorite)!
