It was definitely sad when Barry and my mom left for the airport Saturday morning. I was sitting on the couch feeding Ellie and we said our goodbyes. I love my life in Texas, but I so hate living so far from my family! We have a vacation planned with my family this summer. We've rented a house on Lake Michigan for a week. I can't wait. Although I think Ellie will need a grandma visit before then.
When Ellie was born she weighed 6lbs 13 ounces. At our one week well visit she was up to 7lbs 4.5oz. We braved the roads on Thursday to take her to her two week well visit and she is already up to 8lbs 3.5oz. I tell ya this girl loves to eat!! She takes about 4 ounces of formula every 4 hours.
She is a great sleeper! I'm almost hesitant to type that because I know it could change so easily, but right now she makes us happy during the night. She is finally sleeping in her cradle and pack and play. At first she wanted nothing to do with them. We could only get her to sleep in her swing. While she still LOVES her swing, she also seems to love her cradle and does fine in the pack and play too.
Sam has become pretty protective of her. If she's been sleeping what he thinks is too long, he'll go peek overe the top of her cradle and check on her. It's super sweet. He loves to come look at her while she's eating or we are holding her. I felt bad in the beginning because he was pretty sad. He wasn't getting as much attention as he did before. But, we've made sure to give him time and he's really settled in pretty well.
Here are some pics from my mom's visit.

Have a great week!
