elliot weekly: week 2

I cannot believe how fast the time is flying by! Two weeks?! Wow. Here's a little taste of what we've been up to:

Elliot's first walk! We took Elliot out for a stroll around the neighborhood. She is in LOVE with her stroller (thanks Aunt Lauren!) She was so loving her ride around the 'hood that she's just passed out with excitement:

Elliot's 2nd check-up: passed with flying colors! Our little girl is looking good and gaining weight. Elliot's been a pretty little baby so far. She wouldn't fit into any of the clothes that we had for her. We actually had to go out and buy several preemie and newborn outfits for her so she wouldn't just be sporting just a diaper around the house. But, we won't have to be worried about that for long. Baby girl is up to 6 pounds 11 ounces (from the 5 pounds 12.5 ounces last week!) Gotta love our little chunk ;)

check out this girl's cheeks!!

Elliot's first sick visit: sad day. We had to take Elliot to the doctor for her first sick visit. She woke up Wednesday morning coughing and wheezing. It turns out our sweet girl has her first cold. I'm not sure how she got sick, but it certainly gave us a scare. Our pediatrician was great though. She encouraged us that newborns often get sick (weak immune systems) and that we'll just have to wait it out (she's too young for any cold medication.)

Elliot's first quarantine: With Elliot having her first illness, Josh and I have flown a bit into overbearing-parent-mode. We've had to limit Elliot's visitors and postpone visits from some of our favorite friends and family. It makes us sad. But, it makes us more sad to see our little girl sick. Is there anything more sad than a 12 day old baby with a cough?!

love my man.
love my sweet baby girl.

i love all her expressions.
so glad i could capture one for y'all!

oh no her first cold and I did not get a call!!! You guys are doing great. I am so proud of you both. I am just in love with how much you are in love with your little bean. She is precious and when you are ready we would love to come and see you, but I know you might want to be waiting a little bit!
