2 weeks old

Holland turns 2 weeks old tomorrow. It really has already gone by so fast. I can't believe two weeks ago at this moment, I had a big baby in my belly. Very weird. So far things have gone so much more smoothly than I anticipated. Here are some facts about Holland:

-She loves to eat and is a great eater (which is a huge relief considering Briz really struggled).

-She also loves to poop and pee. I mean, this girl is regular. Again a huge relief because Briz didn't poop for 10 days after being born.

-She gets extremely angry when we change her clothes or diapers. When she gets to practice using her vocal chords.

-She grunts a lot, particularly when she starts to get hungry.

-She hardly ever opens her eyes. Nick told me yesterday he thinks she might be slow. It also makes it tough to figure out exactly who she looks like because we don't see her eyes often.

-She is pretty mellow and sleeps a ton! At night she generally goes for 5 to 6 hours. I am an extremely ungrateful mom, and still sigh unhappily when she wakes up to eat in the middle of the night.

-She is very sweet and loves to roll up in a little ball and snuggle with anyone willing to hold her.

-She loves the sound of her mom and dad's voice and pretty much stops crying instantly the second we start talking to her.

-She loves music and the sound of water.

-She has freakishly long limbs, fingers, and toes.

-She has already added a great spirit to our home and family. She makes everyone around her happier. We like her a little.

No more pictures Mom!

Very relaxed during bath time.

Oh my gosh!! I so, so, so want to hold her! She is beautiful and I love the picture of Briz kissing her! I also love the hand in her face. So sweet! Hope everyone is doing well.

I love that the poop commentaries are back! I want her to roll up in a ball and cuddle on me.
