Homemade photo shoot!

The second week has been excellent. Layla Ruth is on a 3-3.5 hour schedule of eating and hanging out or sleeping. She is a really good baby. She is not very fussy- if she cries, it's because she needs something. Last week, Mike and I decided to do a homemade photo shoot, using this lovely lamb chair that my friend Debbie from Minnesota got Layla.

She managed to stay awake for about 2 minutes of the photo shoot. So obviously she is better cut out for secretary of state rather than modeling.

We went to the doctor on Friday, and Layla has regained her birth weight plus some! She's now 8 lbs 2 oz. She is 97th percentile in head circumference, 97th percentile in height (21.5 inches) and 50th percentile in weight. So we're working hard on getting her to put on some extra ounces. She certainly loves eating (like her mommy), so hopefully we'll continue to improve!

Family visits start tomorrow, which will be great. The grandparents have been so understanding about us needing some family time for these first two weeks. We are looking forward to Layla meeting all her grandparents, and starting to integrate more people into our little world!
