One Week Old Stats (Jan. 21, 2013)
We went to our 1 week appointment and love our doctor! Jeff's friend is also the receptionist at the office so it was fun seeing her. When we left the hospital on Friday Emery weighed 8lbs even. At her 1 week appointment the next Monday she had gained 11oz and was well past her birth weight. She had also grown just a little bit.
The next day we had to go get her second PKU test done at the lab and she did great! She barely even cried at all and as soon as it was over you never would have known that anything had just happened. Here's a tip: if you ever have to take a newborn to a lab call ahead and ask for an appointment at their slowest time. There were only 2 or 3 other people in the waiting room with us and we only waited for maybe 5 minutes. However, someone brought his dog in with him to pay his bill and Jeff and I both eyed the dog the entire time. Thank goodness for the car seat cover.
Jeff's mom came Monday night and stayed during the week. She also took Emery at night so we got even more sleep which was nice since Jeff had to work on Wednesday. She helped cook and clean so we were very spoiled our whole first week home.
I was even more spoiled because Jefferson got to take two weeks off of work for Emery so we had a whole week at home together before he had to go back to work. It was so nice having him at home not only to help but to just be our little family together.

|Maybe this is why she is such a daddy's girl already.|

She actually was pretty content most of the time until the very end.

Jeff's favorite saying is already "Mom made me do it!"
