2 Weeks Old!

Sophia Alice is 2 weeks old! I am pretty sure I will be saying this every week, month, year.... from now on but I can't believe it has been 2 weeks since Sophia joined our family! What an incredible 2 weeks it has been. Carl and I have certainly been learning a lot about our sweet little girl over the last 2 weeks.

Sophia's second week was filled with more visits from mom and dad's friends. She met mom's long time friend (since middle school!) Caitlin and her sister Sarah. Mom and dad's friends Jason and Amy came by with food and to visit Sophia. Timing is always tricky with Sophia as she occasionally decides to eat right through her visits so Amy and Jason only got to see Sophia briefly. Sorry friends! Hopefully next time Sophia will want to play more :)

Sophia lost her umbilical cord stump this week (at 8 days old). No more stump meant Sophia could have her first real tub bath. Mom and dad were hopeful Sophia would like this a little more than the sponge bath but so far bath time is just not Sophia's favorite activity.

At 2 weeks old Sophia:

  • wears size newborn clothes

  • weighs 7lbs 15 ounces and is 19 3/4" long (as of her doctor's appointment when she was 10 days old)

  • is in the 45-50 percentile for weight and 40th for height

  • was declared "healthy (and) beautiful" by her pediatrician

  • makes the cutest faces while she sleeps

  • giggled once, her Mom and Dad are very curious what she was dreaming about :)

  • likes to be swaddled to sleep at night

  • loves her carseat

  • can lift her head and turn from side to side

And one more picture of my sweet girl :)


  1. She looks great! Wow, two weeks already.

  2. Bath time - oh no! She'll learn to love it. :o) Happy 2 weeks Miss Sophia!
