Tatum is now 3 weeks old, the time is really flying by. My mom left a week and a half ago, and every time I call her and tell her something Tatum did she can't believe how much she has changed in just that short amount of time. I have to agree with her Tatum is growing and changing daily. When people say kids grow just before your eye they are not kidding.
But with that said Garrett and I are so excited to watch our little girl grow!
Height and Weight: When she was born, she weighed 6 lbs 7 oz, and they measured her at 19 inches... At the 2 week appointment, she weighed in at 7 lbs 1 oz, and they measured her at 20 inches. She already looks more chubby than last week, so I'm excited to know that she is gaining weight so easily.
Sleep: Tatum loves her sleep!! She is content when laying in her bassinet, until a dirty diaper or its feeding time which wakes her up. She also loves the occasional nap on mommy or daddy's chest. She will almost always take a nap in the morning, which is amazing, because this is my time to eat and get the house in order for the day. For right now she is sleeping in 2 1/2 - 4 hour intervals through the night.
Clothes: She is loving her onesies and is not bothered by me changing her. She is defiantly mom's little girl. She is still in all her newborn wear but I and thinking that we'll be packing up the newborn clothes in the next couple of weeks.
What we've learned: The transition to being a couple to being a family of 3 has been much easier than I was thinking it would be. Our late nights have transitioned from hanging out with friends to hanging out with Tatum! They are the best!
What we're enjoying right now: Mommy is enjoying how much Tatum loves to cuddly! Tatum is enjoying sleeping, eating and pooping as I would think most infants do.
What our biggest struggles are: Trying to keep the house in order and getting all the laundry done. Also making sure to give enough love to the. Fur babies stud and zoey!
