I cannot believe that Emory is already one week old! Time is flying by so fast already. She is so amazing and beautiful. Every day she looks more like Liberty. I really didn't expect them to look so much alike since Liberty and Lilly didn't look very similar. It is so precious to look at Emory and see Liberty.
hmm...what am I going to do with another thumbsucker?!
At one week old, Emory...
1. still has dark brown hair
2. blue eyes that are so dark they almost seem black at times
3. loves to eat. We are trying to work toward a 3 hours schedule, but at times she is still eating every 1 1/2 - 2 hours.
4. has a birth mark on her left eye in the shape of a perfect heart.
5. HATES having a dirty diaper. She screams at the top of her lungs until I get it changed.
6. tries to suck her thumb whenever her hands randomly get near her mouth.
7. weighs 8lb 3 oz. The doctor was so impressed with how healthy she is.
Emory's first mini bath

The night we spent in the hospital was a little rough. Scott ended up having to come home to comfort Liberty who, as you might imagine, was a little overwhelmed. So, that left me to care for Emory solo. All I can say is she is an amazing eater. I spent the entire night feeding a little girl who apparently wasn't satified that there wasn't any milk yet. Needless to say, by the time we got home yesterday afternoon, I was exhuasted. Thanks to my wonderful husband I did get a little sleep last night. He took the first shift and woke me up when she needed to eat, which is about every two hours. She finally slept from about 4:30 to 8:30 which was oh so nice!Liberty is absolutely in love with her. She constantly wants to hold her and always makes sure she has a blanket and stuffed animal nearby. She is looking forward to giving Emory her first bottle. Yesterday afternoon she was holding Emory and they both fell asleep curled up in the boppy pillow. It was so cute. Everyone is just so worn out from all the excitment.
So far this is what we know about our newest addition...
Emory is a great eater. She latched on perfectly the very first time.
She also loves her binky already. If she isn't attached to me, she wants her binky :).
She also loves to be held and snuggled close.
She doesn't want to sleep by herself, so I slept on the couch with her most of the night.
She is already moving her head around and holding it up by herself for brief moments.
She likes to be rocked and bounced.
She has so much hair! Way more than both her sisters.
She is our biggest baby as far as weight goes, but our shortest in length.
She looks like Scott--just like all of our girls do!
Look at this hair!
We have spent the morning comparing her to Liberty and Lilly when they were just hours old. She is very similar to Liberty was and so much different than Lilly. We are so in love with her and feel incredibly blessed to have her home with us.

We celebrated her 5th birthday tonight since my family is in. Her actual birthday isn't until the 6th. We kept it small this year since we obviously have so much going on. I cannot believe she is already 5. Time is flying by so quickly and I feel so blessed to be able to stay home with her so I don't miss a second of it!
