One Week and a Bath

Sunday marks Gwen's one week birthday... funny, seems like she's been with us a lot longer than 1 week! I guess the decreased amount of sleep makes the days longer. And they all run together too. I have the hardest time now keeping track of what day it is... Tuesday? Friday? Aren't they all the same?

At her pediatrician appointment Gwen's stats were:

  • height: 20 3/4 inches.... 90th percentile
  • weight: 7 lbs 8 oz.... 50th percentile (but 1 full oz more than when she was born!)
  • head circumference: 35 cm.... 50th percentile
Looks like she might have Eric's tall skinny genes afterall! :)

she hates it!
nah, this isn't so bad.


  1. So adorable. Get used to not knowing the days of the week. They really are all the same when you stay home with a baby. :) Hope you are enjoying her! She's a doll.

  2. She is so pretty! Yeah, in a month you'll feel like you've been a parent all your life. And yes, you will be out of touch with the world for some time now...=) Just make sure Eric lets you get away by yourself soon, it's essential!

  3. She is adorable! I can't wait to get my hands on her!

  4. She's so beautiful Elisa! I hope you're doing well. I'm sure you're exhausted. =) Aren't babies so fun though? I hope you aren't too tired to love it!

  5. What beautiful lips! Hi Elisa...just wanted to let you know we are thinking about you and hoping that all is well! I am so excited to meet Gwen!

  6. Congratulations Eric and Elisa. Gwen is adorable and I wish I was there to squeeze her!
