Gracie is here!

I realize that I have not posted in sometime. And I really don't have time because I should be feeding Gracie....again. This girl is very dainty and does not want to take down her meals too fast. Therefore, she also doesn't ever burp or spit up which I think is so ladylike....doesn't mean it will last. So her feedings take me close to an hour right now. She also gets so sleepy while eatting so it is a job to keep her awake. I unswaddle her, take her clothes off, tickle her, rub her down with a baby wipe, rub her feet, change positions, change her diaper, try to burp her, sing fun songs, all in one feeding. How exhausting!
And even still she may not wake up until I lay her on the bed and walk away for a moment...then she is all ready for mealtime!
Her 2 week apointment was Friday and the doctor said she is as alert as a one month old. She follows you with her eyes and everything. Our house is very loud right now and she can sleep through almost anything...with a few exceptions. I am grateful for that.
Well my images won't upload and I must feed this baby and then head to Chick-fil-A. I'll post them later!
