Lately I’ve been noticing more and more how quickly our girl is growing up, and while it’s so fun to see it’s also breaking my heart a little. To most people she’s teeny, but to us she’s HUGE—when you snuggled that itty bitty newborn with the scrawny arms and legs who you could hold with just one hand, 8lbs seems big 😆
Today I put her in the onesie we brought to the hospital when she was born. Not knowing how big she’d be we’d grabbed a 0-3 monther, and she was absolutely swimming in it 😄 On the left, she’s 2 days old, and the right is today, at 5 1/2 weeks.
Slow down, little one. We want to hold onto these days as long as we can. 💜
No matter what little man, mummy and daddy will be right by your side... Fighting every battle hand in hand
As most would have noticed I haven’t posted Grayson’s 5 week photo and honestly it’s all because we’ve had such a huge week as a family - on Wednesday night we took Gray to the emergency department after he had 6 choking episodes in an hour and a half!! Once there the doctors became concerned about his weight, his weight gain was becoming weight loss. So they admitted him to the children’s ward for failure to thrive, where he was constantly monitored but not taken away from me (thank god). At 2am that morning I broke and felt like I was failing not only as a mother but was severely failing him 😭 The next morning we were asked if we’d like to try formula as my pump was only getting 30-40mls out of me and he was only feeding for 5mins.
He took to formula so well and managed to put on 80g in just under 24 hours, which meant on Friday we got to go home. This means my breastfeeding journey has taken a pause not stopped, but I’m continuing to pump and build my supply again.
Through this whole experience he handled everything like a champ and everyone that met him absolutely fell in love!!! As a first time mum this had to be one of the scariest moments for me but I’m so glad he’s healthy and we are all home together 💙💙 @christian_tatz
🌿 FIVE WEEKS 🌿 This week I’ve been extra grateful for my dear little William. We unfortunately had some challenges, but also had big wins. #fiveweeksold#babyboy#slothboy

I'm five weeks today! I like to ooh and ahh, go into my swing for short periods of time, go for long walks in my stroller, look at the lights on the Christmas tree, and listen to my mom sing all the Christmas classics such as Deck the Halls (with boughs of Teddy), Jingle Teddy, and Baby It's Teddy Outside. #christmasbaby#fiveweeksold#teddybear#instababies#babyboy#boymom
This girl had her one month checkup today and has made me so proud.
She weighed 10 pounds 12 ounces. She is 23 inches long and has a head circumference of 39cm. She is in the 99 percentile for weight and head. She’s off the charts for height.
Battling with #hyperemesisgravidarum for nine months I was so worried about her being underweight and malnourished. I was worried that after nine months of severe dehydration I wouldn’t be able to breastfeed. After nine months of daily medication and lack of prenatal vitamins I was worried about birth defects and delayed development.
This girl has shattered all my concerns and has given her momma relief upon relief. She is off the charts in growth, hitting every milestone on time and early, breastfeeding like a champ and developmentally on track.
This little girl is my heart and whole world and I’m so grateful she’s done so amazing in spite of everything against me. #hgbaby#fiveweeksold#sohealthy#growing#breastfedbaby#irislayne
Happy due date to the two best things to ever happen to me 🥰 ⠀
That first month was so hard not having you guys home with us, but dang, am I thankful to have had an extra six weeks to love on you. #bonustime ⠀
Thank you for making me a mommy, Logan Elise and Parker Bradley 💗💙 [ that second picture with Rucker just kills me 🤣 and I had to include their one month photos that I didn’t share yet 🥰 i love how they did the same pose! ]
I'm a bit behind! Here's pictures of our girl Ellie Jane at 3 weeks, one month, and 5 weeks!
Eleanor is a sweet girl. She loves snuggles and eating. She can hold her head up and smile at you. She likes to talk. She does not like baths or diaper changes. She absolutely does not like to be ignored.
We can't wait to see what you'll do next funny girl! 😘 #EllieJane#2under2#threeweeksold#onemonthold#fiveweeksold
This little girl is five weeks old today and I just cannot believe how fast time is flying.
I started back to work this week. It’s been hard being away from her but she’s doing amazing.
Iris is becoming more alert during the day and sleeping longer stretches at night (which momma loves). She socially smiles but is a bit stingy with her smiles. She is starting to coo and babble more which is so darling to listen to.
She’s doing just so great. I’m so proud of all her little developmental milestones. Happy five weeks Iris Layne. Momma and Daddy love you. #hgbaby#hyperemesisgravidarum#fiveweeksold#irislayne#ilovehersomuch
✨ five weeks old ✨
This outfit obviously brings out her inner part gal! It’s a pretty special outfit, it’s an outfit that was bought on my Aunties behalf, after she passed away while I was pregnant with Willa. Our baby girl also helps carry on her name as part of her middle name!
Hey all! We hope everyone had a very Happy Thanksgiving last week. With the holiday weekend, working the day before and the day of Thanksgiving, then being out of town to visit family over the weekend and working again on Monday...I’m just getting around to posting the C Litter’s five week photos! My apologies to those who have been waiting for an update.
Our little angel 💕
A good friend recommended the @thewonderweeks app and it’s been an absolute godsend the past week. Macey is going through her first leap in mental development dubbed ”changing sensations”. She’s been crying more, having trouble sleeping and wanting to cling to me all day and night (poor Matt 😢). Without this app, we wouldn’t have realised that the fussiness is stemming from all the activity happening in her beautiful big brain. The app has helped us understand her and to stay patient. I’d be confused and cranky too if I was learning and growing that much, that quick. It’s truly amazing and I am so grateful I get to be her Mumma.
The big kids and I enjoy playing with little Luke so much. He’s like our favorite toy! 🥰 Speaking of toys, we’ve never done a side by side photo series to document our baby’s growth before, so this should be fun to watch! This was Luke two weeks ago today at 5 weeks. Let’s see if I can keep up with this monthly! 😉 Thanks for the adorable stuffie, @jessincerto! #babynumberfour#somuchfun#newborn#fiveweeksold ✨EDIT: If any of you did this with your babies, posted to Instagram, and created a special hashtag for the series, please comment below with your tag - I would LOVE to see! 😍 #lukeandhisrhino

Baby wearing has became my life line since entering the world of 2 under 2! 🥰 I am loving being able to enjoy these newborn snuggles while still being able to chase around my very adventurous one-year-old (who was trying to lead her aunt to a nice stick while this photo was being taken LOL). #1021mamas
