One Month Old

I can't even believe that Rachel is a month old already. The 2nd kid sure does grow up faster than the 1st kid! She is very healthy and is a really good baby, but then she's also still in the stage where she sleeps pretty much all the time. She may get fussier when she's awake more. Lizzy has a cold that started on Tuesday, so I've been losing more sleep because of her than because of Rachel. So far, none of the rest of us have gotten sick... cross your fingers!

We went hiking to donut falls today with the girls. It was lots of fun and really beautiful weather!

Rachel's 2 Week Check Up

Rachel had her two week check up today. She is exceedingly healthy! She was 7 lbs 11 oz and 20.5 inches long. At her two day check up, she had lost a little weight, so she was at 5 lbs 15 oz and 19.5 inches long. So, she grew a whole inch and almost 2 lbs in just 2 weeks! Crazy, huh! In comparison, Lizzy was 6 lbs 10 oz at birth, 6 lbs 0 oz at 2 days, and 7 lbs 5 oz at two weeks. Lizzy was 20 inches at birth, and 20.5 inches at two weeks. So, they're pretty close to the same size! When the doctor came in and saw that Rachel had gained almost 2 pounds in 2 weeks, he said I must be producing pure cream to feed her!
