Danica is now 3 weeks old!
It's so crazy how time flies, but it also feels like she's been here for a lot longer. She is still such a sweet and content baby. She is very alert. They say newborns don't smile intentionally until about 6 weeks or so, but I feel like she's going to sooner. There's just some spark or something in those eyes when we talk to her... who knows.

A lot has happened since she's been born... and also not very much. (I need to be better at documenting things!) We did have a couple of appointments, though, with a pediatrician. At her 5 day appointment everything was looking great. She had gained weight and seems to be eating great.
Her stat's at that appointment (8/6) were:
Weight: 6 lbs 15 oz - 24%
Head: 13.18" - 14%
Length: 19.52" - 44%

Since then we've had a 2 week appointment. Danica is healthy and growing.
Her stat's at that appointment (8/19) were:
Weight: 7 lbs 13 oz - 28%
Head: 13.97" - 31%
Length: 20.5" - 51%

So she's growing! She's probably over 8 lbs now.
She still spends her time reading, composing music, painting, eating, sleeping, and going potty! She's especially good at those last three.

Here are some pictures from her first bath:


  1. Hey Emily! Congrats on your little one! What a cutie!

  3. She is a cutie!! That's nice that she didn't fuss.
