Jaycee is 2 Weeks Old and Our Family Feels Complete
Jaycee turned 2 weeks old yesterday...wow TIME FLIES! We had her 2 week checkup today and she is back to her birth weight plus some and she checked out perfectly! She weighs 8lbs 9 oz and was 21 3/4 inches long. They were pleased with the amount of weight she had gained as a lot of babies only get back to birth weight by the 2 week check up. However, she didn't lose very much weight only 1 ounce in the first 24 hours..don't know about after that since we went home.
The boys have been out of school for a week now from the 1 INCH of snow we got. So many of the back roads are still frozen because we have not gotten very warm here. They have loved having the extra time with Jaycee. Daniel and Micah are both great big brothers. They LOVE their sister and are a big help. Daniel loves to hold her and is great to hold her if I need to do something real quick. Micah loves to help with changing her and helping me get the things that I need. They are wonderful with her.
We took Jaycee to church for the first time on Sunday and it felt so good to have our whole family together for worship. I feel like my family is complete since Jaycee has arrived and I loved having all 3 kids surrounding me at church. Jason has been given a few Sundays off so that he can help out with Jaycee and so he can have some extra family time. He loved getting to sit with us on Sunday and was actually able to enjoy holding Jaycee during church. The boys were so very excited to show Jaycee off at church. They were grinning from ear to ear! It was a wonderful day!
Our family is so truly blessed by everything that the Lord has given us.
