Wow - time really does fly. Rosemary Nell was born a week ago today.
This time last week, we were here - just waiting.

Rosie was born with a rash on her cheeks, but it cleared up after 5 days. She was also born with a lot of dark hair and long finger and toe nails. She was much bigger than we expected. We thought she would maybe be 6 pounds. Our doctor was pleasantly surprised to have her be over 7. But it was funny - Marc and I had the same reaction to the doctor asking, "Now how big did we think she would be??" It was as if she had not made the incision big enough from which this big-little girl would emerge!

Rosie has done so well with nursing. But she doesn't eat as much as Charlie did. She will nurse on one side and fall asleep. And sometimes, about 30 minutes later, she wants to nurse on the other side. In the hospital, she slept 6 hours at night. We aren't having that kind of luck now that we are home, and she seems to have her days and nights confused.
We went to the doctor yesterday and she is already back up to 6 pounds, 14.5 ounces and has grown to 20 inches, so she is drinking milk like a champ! Her head was 15 inches as well.
She is lovely and wonderful and we are so happy to have her here!
