6 weeks of Kensley


2 of the newborn pics I took

This poor child has 2nd child syndrome so badly, I had a post for every single week for a very long time with kennedy & this girl is getting her first one at 6 weeks!
Lets do a little catch up!

For the first 2 weeks we had weigh check every other day! It was exhausting, but you finally started to gain!
We found out your digestive tract was a little under developed, so you were having trouble gaining but it would a-ok by your due date! & that has proven to be true!
Your cord fell off 4/28!!
& you kinda have a outtie!

you were primary in preemie clothes up until about a week ago & now fitting very nicely into newborn!

You proved everyone wrong, sleeping thru the night & being a "good baby" which is a term i never understand; all babies are good babies :) but you had a temperament & sleeping habits of your sister.
Had you say? Yes im speaking in past tense. Why you might ask? Thrush. At your last weigh in I asked if you had it, they said no it was just milk curds. Ok cool. Then the pain started, I hadn't had really any pain nursing you but lord did it come on strong all of a sudden & then your mouth looked every worse. So off to the dr we went, & low & behold. Thrush. When people tell you to listen to your motherly instinct do my friends. Right after this, you started crying...pretty much 24/7 unless your nursing, & nursing? was hurting real bad. So we started giving you pumped milk which you took but would be angry you couldnt nurse.
We are both on meds now! You are all clear & im still in a little pain! But your crying hasn't quite stopped; its worse in the evening which has me thinking its colic; but you are quite as soon as I put you in the wrap with a white noise machine!

Its been kinda tough of me. When you wanted to nurse it was so painful & i just couldnt do it; I felt like the worse momma ever. & this whole colic thing? such a whole new ballgame for me. Sister was had the most quite cry & you, oh you my friend have a cry that you could hear blocks away. But thats the thing, you aren't your sister. You each are different babies & I am working on remembering that. & having no expectations on how you are growing! Believe or not this new for me too & we both are growing & learning!
Which after putting all expectation aside & really getting to know you has been so fun!
You already have such a personality! & your lip thing? I love. you stick it out so far when your sad or want to be picked up {which is all the time} You loved being praised & being called "pretty girl!"
Your hair is staying so far! Making me think you may have more of my genes then we think!
But your eyes? Your daddys. Just like big sister! They are turning into the most beautiful blue!
You now way 7lbs 2oz! Which is wonderful!
You have a little problem with your eyes, we thought it was a clogged eye duct but its actually cause your eyes arent developed enough, they werent ready to see all this bright light so they are making extra gunk to make up for it! Your left is clear now but your right is getting there!

Thats all I got for now! I promise to be better on these, cause lord knows I will hear about this one day....."why did you write more in kennedys book then in mine?!?!" ahh yes.
