Only took till week 3 for me to be late with an update :) Yesterday was crazy busy, hence this is a day late, but better late than never :)
At her 2 week appointment on Monday she was 10lb 9.5oz (97%) and 21 inches (84%) so she is growing nicely. The doctor said they usually average gaining 1 ounce a day and Anna is averaging 1 1/2 ounces. :) But he said that means she's thriving, not that she's gaining too much, so that was nice to hear. He once again said she's perfect :). She's starting to be able to be more content being happy when awake. We've discovered her favorite place to be when awake is on the floor which just is not always the safest place in our house with her crazy brothers, so she gets to be on the floor while they're watching a video or eating or if I can sit right by her and protect her. :) We just continue to love her to pieces and enjoy having her as part of our family. On the sleeping front she is consistently waking up just one time a night, between 3:30 and 4:30 and then goes right back to sleep and sleeps till between 7:30 and 8:30, so no complaints here! And isn't her dress here just so adorable! :) We took family pictures with Steve's family last night so I found this dress for her on amazon and thought it was just too cute! I thought I wouldn't know what to do with a girl but I have to admit, it's pretty fun to get into this whole girl clothes thing. :)

Anna does not go very long during the day without one of her brothers in her face :)
I have a charm bracelet Steve gave me last year for Valentine's Day that has the boys birthstones on them and so for this Valentine's Day he gave me a charm with Anna's birthstone. As you can see we have 2 January's, 2 Octobers :). It's nice and symmetric
Anna and I all ready for church last week.
Anna's not ready for football to be done :) Touchdown!!
Micah had his 5 year appointment with Anna's 2 week appointment. We went beforehand to get Anna's birth certificate and we ended up with time to kill, so we went through the Wendy's drive thru and got a frosty. :) Micah also had a very good appointment. He weighed 51 pounds (94%) and was 3'9" (85%).
Micah thinks Anna needs to learn about technology at a young age :)
She wasn't very interested
My silly boys at the grocery store, always an adventure :)
Anna has many facial expressions :)
Even when she's asleep, she has many expressions, but they're all cute :)
She fell asleep while being on the floor :) She absolutely loves being swaddled. If she's getting fussy you usually can just wrap her up in these awesome blankets my sister-in-law got for her and she calms right down.
Micah wanted to feed her
She also really likes hanging out on the changing pad, so sometimes I put it on the kitchen table and one time Micah did this with her giraffe so she could see it easily :)
And goodnight :) (this picture was taken about 60 seconds after the previous one :))
