2 Week Stretch

Sara Bear is 2 weeks old today! We made it through the rough 2 weeks!! So it should be all down hill from now right? ;) Each day does get a little easier, just because we're getting use to what she wants and when she wants it. But also, once we get use to her... she changes things up on us and we have to get use to a whole new little girl! We know that she'll sleep for a good stretch of 3-4 hours around 7:30... so naturally, I try to sleep more at that time and Jason stays up until the first nightly feeding. Then we know that at about 3:30 AM... she starts waking up every hour and a half... so Mommy stays up and tries to let Daddy sleep a little more in the morning. Sara loves her bath time now. She threw a big fit during the first one. She eats A LOT!!! She's already getting so big! We've had to ditch the newborn clothes already! Mostly because she's just so long. We have our two week doctor's appointment Friday and so far things seem to be going alright! A little overwhelming and exhausting, but then we look at this little being in our house and just say "woah.. we MADE that!" It truly is a miracle. A screaming, pooping, peeing BEAUTIFUL miracle. ;)

We had lots of guests this weekend for Thanksgiving. Sara got to meet Nana and Papaw from Ohio, Nina and Papa (again) from Vegas, and Aunt Mitchi, Uncle Kevin, and Evelyn from Vegas too! They were all SO helpful in our time of need and it was so much fun to share our bundle of joy with them. And we even took the little one to the beach. I think she loved it... while she was snuggled up and sleeping.
First Thanksgiving. She was a cranky pants.
First trip to the beach!
Since we did the predictions, I thought it'd be fun to follow up on that and compare the results!

Mommy's Prediction
Daddy's Prediction
Actual Results
Eye Color: Blue, One Green/One Blue 
Her eyes are currently a blue grey
Hair Color: Blonde/White, Blonde
Her hair is very blonde, but sometimes seems like it has a hint of red! It's beautiful!
Skin Color: Fair and maybe blotchy, Mother of Pearl
Her skin is actually amazing! It's pale, but so clear and smooth! 
Bald or Full Head of Hair: Full Head of Hair, Full head of hair
She definitely has a FULL head of hair! 
Hair Type: Straight/Crazy, Thick and Wavy
I would say it's straight, except after bath time when it's a little more wavy. 
Who Will She Look Like: Me, Melissa
We think she has a perfect mixture of us both. Jason's eyes, Melissa's nose.
How much will she weigh: Somewhere in the 9 pounds, 9 lbs 5 oz
She weighed 8 pounds 5 ounces
How long will she be: 21 inches, 21 1/2"
21 1/2"
Arrival: On Time, 15 minutes early
4 days late. 
Bad Traits She'll Probably Get:
1. Big Nose: Daddy has a larger nose.
2. Bad Skin: Mommy has wretched horrible skin. She'll probably have something wrong with hers too!
3. Different sized thumbs: Poor Mommy has been teased her whole life because of her different sized thumbs; so who knows! Maybe I'll have a little mini me with misshaped thumbs too!
1. My big nose: I have trouble drinking out of small diameter cups
2. Too analytical: sometimes I can not take a joke because I will over analyze 
3. Moody: She is a GIRL people!
