2 weeks old!

Umm, I'm not liking the fact that my little girl is already half a month old. Is it possible that this one is going even faster than it did with Owen? Here are a few things that we've learned about Ellison during her first 2 weeks on Earth:
  • She's a bit more of a crier than Owen was and man does she have a pair of lungs on her.  Maybe she's just trying already to keep up/out-do her brother.
  • Owen was a 7 minute, one sided nurser almost from day one.  Ellison likes both sides and takes her time to nurse.  Owen hence gets to watch a lot of TV these days.
  • She loves to be held.  At all times.  We're trying hard to put her down, but really how can you resist the cuteness?
  • She loves her car seat.  Thank the Lord.  Owen hated that thing, even for walks outside.  But so far, the car seat has helped put her to sleep and car rides have been fabulously easy!  She also seems to enjoy the swing thankfully.
  • Do girls just have more blow outs than boys do?  Because I definitely don't remember this many soiled onesies with poop up the back of them.  Wow, do girls have more folds down there to get clean!  And boy do you forget how many diapers newborns go through in the beginning.
  • She loves being swaddled.  Well, maybe not loves, but it calms her down immediately.
  • She's not much of a paci girl.  Yet.  I'm still trying because that thing has been worth it's weight in gold with O.
  • I'm sure there's more, but mommy brain may be worse than pregnancy brain.
