2 weeks old

Autumn is 2 weeks old!

Here are some facts about my little miss tiny:

She is a super star at sucking on her binkie!

She loves to arch her back and stick her bum out when she is getting picked up or when she is mad.

She has super big eyes that are super alert and the nurses say she likes to watch everything they do. 

She is off IV fluids and just on breast milk.
She tried breastfeeding today, and latched on first try, but then fell asleep.  
She is growing like a weed, She is up to 4lbs 2oz and 17 inches long!

She is went from 6 liters of oxygen to 1/4 of a liter in two days! What a champ!
She doesn't like when you move her fast. She tends to spit up or barf if you do.
 (Preemies struggle with over stimulation. Too much light, sound, or movement bothers them and can cause, hiccups, throwing up or flailing)
She always wakes up when Nate and I come to visit her!
(Which I love, because she recognizes us)
She loves to keep her hands out stretched and hold her own hands.

Her respirations go down when we do skin to skin
 (which is good, because that means she is relaxed)

Her fingers are crazy long.

Her hair color is still a mystery.
 (could be blonde...might be red, might turn brown...I am still hoping for red)

 When she sneezes, she does it like 10 times. 

She is an awesome sleeper, (so the nurses tell me)

She squeaks when she sleeps and it is the cutiest noise I have ever heard.

She is amazing and wonderful and perfect!


  1. Oh my goodness. She is so perfect! Congratulations again, Katie!! She's soooo cute!!

  2. So happy for you! Congratulations again!

  3. What a beautiful little girl! So glad she latched on. That is one of the scariest things for new moms... I know I was worried with my little boy not latching because my sister had issues with her boy and they were never able to get breastfeeding to work out. Congrats Katie I am so happy you finally got your little baby.

  4. Pretty, perfect little girl! So happy for you and Nate! :)
