Tesla thanked her daddy for holding her during her first bath by peeing all over him and the floor!
I am definitely taking advantage of being the favorite person in my daughter's life, as I know it may be short-lived (Lennon was a momma's boy until about 18 months--then he discovered how cool his dad is and the boy's club was formed!). Poor Adam only gets about 10 minutes at a time with Tesla before she wants her momma.
Tesla loves to scrunch down--you can start holding her up on your shoulder, but she will always end up at your chest--I just love the 'melting-into-you phase' that she's still in.
First 4th of July!
Tesla was born weighing 7lbs/11oz. At her two day appointment she was down to 7lbs/5oz--not too bad. At her two week appointment she grew .25 inches to put her at 20.5 inches long and she was up to 8lbs/10oz--almost a pound over her birth weight. The doctor called her an olympic eater!
Lennon was on one side of our bed watching a movie, while Tesla was on the other side of the bed while I was at the desk across the room. I would look over at them every few minutes and would see Lennon inching closer to his sister. This was the end result--I love it!
Lennon doting on his sister:
Lennon loves holding his sister every chance he gets:
Our little girl at one month--time is flying by and we're trying to soak up every moment. We are amazed at how alert Tesla is--she was alert from the day she was born. She loves to take in her surroundings, and especially loves Lennon's artwork. Most days I have to coerce her to sleep because she is exhausted, yet fighting to stay awake.
Starting to smile...and she has dimples! Hopefully there will be many more smile pictures to come!
At my 6 week check-up with our midwife, Mary, who delivered Tesla--we absolutely LOVED our midwives and I feel so blessed that they were such an integral part of our lives, with helping to bring our sweet little girl into this world! I weighed Tesla while we were there and she is about 10 pounds!
And we can't forget Lennon....He still amazes us with how smart he is. He can count to 100 and his new thing is reciting and writing the alphabet backwards. He still loves his music--here he is dancing (don't know where he learned to stick his butt and hips out like he does!)
