Meeting Nana, Poppy, and Dr. Payne

This past weekend, Evy got to meet her wonderful great-grandparents, Nana and Poppy! (My mom's parents.) It was so great to see them and spend time together. We also celebrated Aunt Alyssa's birthday a little early. I am so thankful that Evy has a godly legacy in her grandparents and great-grandparents!

Yesterday we had our first 2-week visit to Dr. Payne, our wonderful pediatrician. I call him Mr. Bill, because his daughter Constance is one of my very best friends (we went to high school together). It was great to visit with him. However, Evy was NOT pleased with having to take her clothes off (a virtuous woman already). She screamed bloody murder! However, we did have great news: she left the hospital weighing 6.14, and at her 5 day checkup was up to 7 lbs. Yesterday she was 7.14 1/2!!! Nursing is definitely one thing going well for us. However, we're still struggling with nights. She just loves to be alert when she should be asleep. We're definitely working on this for everyone's sanity, but I covet your prayers. I know there are moms with worse problems out there, but I don't think it hurts to ask for prayer! :o) Here are pictures that we took before our trip to Dr. Payne's:

I love my sweet girl!

Oh, Ashley! I love these pictures. She is so so beautiful. I love the ones with you and her. The one of your mom and her is sweet too. Your mom looks a lot like her dad. I wonder who Evy will look like? I almost called you the other night during the Oscars, but I didn't want to disturb Evy, if she might be sleeping already. I just finished my hubby tag, if you want to read it. Have a blessed day!

hey i will pray for you about the backwards nights thing! i remember with cole i stayed on a RIGID day schedule (feeding every 3hrs on the dot) and making sure he was fully awake during feeding and i fed him the same amount of time on each side. (very careful not to let me become his pacifier). even if it took me stripping his clothes off and putting a wet washcloth on him, he HAD to stay awake during feedings! it helped TREMENDOUSLY for him to be asleep at nite. he slept through the nite at 9 weeks.

i know it may sound harsh, but those are just a couple of tips for ya! i'm not sure what little miss evy does during feedings but if she's a drifter, make that girl eat! ha!

Ashley, you look beautiful! I LOVE that last picture of you and Evy. Precious! :o) And yay to Evy for gaining so much weight! Good job Mommy for feeding her so well!

I am so glad Evy is gaining well and that breastfeeding is going so good! That can be so hard for some new moms-I am so thankful that is something you are not dealing with!!

Evy will get it all straightened out :) laura grace was like that-she wasn't into scheduled feedings LOL and night time was PLAY TIME. Babies are so funny that way.

You look great :)
