Afton at 4 weeks

Afton had to have a minor surgery this last week (Thurs Nov.13).... we'll talk about that in another post... but we were happy to find out that she has consistently been gaining 2oz a day since she was born. She was 6lbs 1oz when she was born then got down to weighing 5lb 12oz and on Thursday she weighed in at 9lbs. We thought she had been getting big because she has really been feeling heavy and she's getting the cutest rolls everywhere... on her neck, her arms, her legs. We love it. She also grew 2 inches... so she's moving up there! Here are some pictures of the last two weeks.

She loves falling asleep in the car... so I love driving her places.

Sometime when Logan is burping Afton she works so hard to try and suck on his fingers that he just lets her.... this time she bit him. Now he somewhat knows how I feel... but not really. Yes, we have a biter.

Bath time... she's usually screaming during this.

Finally asleep. It's really funny how her hair grows. It's really long in the back and on the sides and pretty short on top.... so it kinda grows in the old man hair, horse shoe shape.

We were laughing at how cute she looks in these pj's that grandma got her.

Love those chubby cheeks.

Her four week old picture. Getting this picture was sooo hard. The first time we went in to take them she decided she was hungry even though she had just fed. So she screamed and screamed then peed on me and pooped on Logan.. haha... he got the worst end of the deal. So we took her back two days later and she did great but the lady taking the pictures did horrible! There were only two pictures that were worth keeping... and this is one of them. :)

Hey Heidi,
This is Tiff Palmer your old roommate. I have been looking at your blog for awhile but haven't ever left a comment. Congrats on your little baby girl. She is so stink'in cute. Is she alright, how did her surgery go, nothing really serious I hope. We are expecting our second in Feb. it is a little boy. We are so excited. It'll be quite a task taking care of two. But definately worth it. I love being a mom. Anyway, we'll have to keep in touch. I've got a blog visit any time you want. I just have a hard time updating it all the time. the address is

Take care,

So, Super Cute!!! Love all the fun new pictures. It's great to hear that she is growing well, it's always hard when you have no idea how much they are eating. Thoe cute little rolls are always a good sighn though. Keep taking tons of pictures you will never regret having so many. About bathtime going a little better, (Maybe no screaming) and actually relaxing for Baby and whoever gives the bath. At Target they have a pink plastic bath tub, I think it's like $15. It has a little sling that you can attach too, and it's an infant and toddler one so it will last a while. We bought that for Kaedyn when she was about a month and bathtime finally became enjoyable for everyone. We Love you 3.. From the 3 of us. Brent, Kiley, & Baby Kaedyn

She is beautiful! I love the 4 wk old picture. I agree with Kiley on the bath. The plastic ones with the sling are great. They are easy to clean, and they last. Babies like them because the water actually surrounds them so they don't get as cold as easily, unlike the foam ones. Glad to hear that she is gaining weight and getting rolls!
