5 Weeks

I can't believe our little peanut is 5 weeks old already.  It seems like when I was pregnant time moved so slowly, and now in a blink of an eye weeks have gone by.  Adelaide Sonora Tampier made a speedy entrance into the world on April 2nd at 2:38am.  She weighed 6lb 11oz and measured 20 inches long.  She looks a lot like her brothers, Augustus and Sebastian, and is absolutely perfect.  She is everything I imagined she would be and more.  She has the cutest dimples, her papa's nose, and smiled on her birthday.  We are so lucky to have her, and be her parents. Wishing so hard that her brothers were here to meet her too.

The first few weeks, all she did was eat, sleep and poop.  She pretty much slept all day and night, and I had to constantly wake her up every 3 hours to eat.  She would sleep through any loud sounds and dogs barking.  She hardly cried.  Only a little, and it was more fuss, when her diaper was changed.    She was super chill when she was awake.  Anyone could hold her, for any length of time.  She was always happy.  This past week she has become a new baby.  On her 4 week birthday, she woke up with a nasty diaper rash.  This was by far the worst day of her life so far.  She cried and shed her second tear (her first tear was when she poked herself in the eye!).  Her little hiny was so sore, we felt so bad for her.  She is awake a lot more now, for a couple hours at a time. Then the other day she decided not to go to sleep until 6am, and wake back up at 8am. This made for one sleepy mama.  Even though she turns me into a sleep deprived zombie, I wouldn't trade it for anything. I cherish every moment with her, even when I think I am seeing double, I look at her and it makes it all worthwhile.  I even love it when she cries, to hear her sound, and she looks absolutely adorable.  Sometimes I watch her for a minute before I sooth her - is that bad?  She is just so precious, I can't handle it.

I am looking forward to her next doctors appointment on Friday, and hoping that we can now start taking her out to public places.  We have major cabin fever over here!  We did get out for a stroll around the park yesterday, and enjoyed the beautiful spring weather.  We only made it once around the park before Adelaide had enough and was ready to go home. She doesn't care for her car seat much.  I'm hoping her opinion on that changes soon.

Doozer Does Shop Coming Soon!

I took up a new hobby when I was in the hospital with the boys - crocheting.  My sister taught me, and it honestly got me through hard days.  I have been crocheting ever since and expanding what I can offer in my etsy shop!  I've been working on a few pieces and will be listing them next week.  Here is a sneak peak of what's to come.
