Lily - 2 weeks

two weeks

6 lbs 15 oz
20 inches

Lily Anne Ellis is two weeks old today!  I took her for a hearing test and her two-week checkup today, and everything went swimmingly.  She failed the hearing test in her right ear while in the hospital, so we needed to follow up and make sure she was hearing okay.  They had told us that she had some vernix on her eardrum, so I wasn't really much worried, and sure enough, today she passed!  After her hearing test, we went over to the pediatrician's office where she was subjected to torture, aka the PKU test.  She was not fond of the whole thing, but was calm and awake after she nursed.  She has gained 5 oz and grown 1 inch since birth, so eating and growing just fine. 

So far, Lily has been a sleepy baby, only having an hour or less of awake time during the day other than nursing.  She sleeps just fine during the night, going right back to sleep after feedings (with the exception of one wakeful night that Adam held her until 3 am).  She almost never cries, and is so sweet and pretty we all just dote on her.  We can't wait to get to know her more as time goes on!
