Avery is 3 Weeks Old!

It's hard to believe that these 3 weeks have gone faster than that 1 week that I went past my due date! ha. I can't believe she is already 3 weeks old! This time last year I never ever thought I would have another baby EVER... 3 months later this time last year I got the shock of my life when Aunt Flo missed her visit and I had a positive pregnancy test staring me in the face.

At 3 weeks Avery is 10 lbs 6 oz. 21 1/2 inches long with a head circumference of 15 inches. 90 percentile in weight. 75 percentile in height. 90 percentile in head circumference. She's a big girl, but the pediatrician is happy with her growth because she is "following her curve well."

We are slowly getting in a routine. She likes to eat... a lot. She wakes up every 2 hours most of the time. OCCASIONALLY she will wake up every 3 or 4 hours, but more than likely every 2. Looking forward to the longer sleep cycles and hopefully they will occur at night.

I am really starting to stress out about school starting because right now, I am definitely not getting enough sleep. On a good night I get 6 hours and on a not so good night about 3-4 hours. Right now the bad are out weighing the good, but it's been nice that Dave has been on vacation. He has taken "baby duty" for 2 nights... and tonight will make 3 nights. He is sweet, but I am going to be sad when he starts work again.

Well. Here is my chunk of a 3 week old. She's sweet. Sorry it's with my phone.  Somedays I just don't have the time to take pics with my good camera and edit them up... so on those days, the phone will have to do.

  6. Amy! Avery is such a cutie!! Seeing her makes me have baby fever but I am so not ready for another baby.

    About school, it will be tough at first but then you will find your own rhythm and things will fall into place. Just be patient and set a schedule for the whole family to follow and yourself to be able to keep things flowing smoothly. It is a lot harder than it sounds but that is something I have to do in order to keep order in my household. I know it is hard but you can do it. I work weekends and Mon-Fri I have school so I believe in you. Just don't give up no matter what. Try to take advantage of tutoring sessions and meet with your professor often so that they can get to know you and will help out. Best of luck and have a happy new year!! I have loved following your blog this year.
