Where does all of the time go???

Well, sorry I have been absent from the blog world, but someone is keeping me very busy!!

That is right! She is here!! we welcomed Sophia Elise Foresee into the world August 2, at 6:20 p.m.. She weighed 6 lbs and 7 oz, 19 3/4 in long. Let me tell ya, labor is some rough stuff, but we could not be happier! She is the best thing that has ever happened to Aron and I.

I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. 1 Samuel 1:27

She is 8 weeks old today, and she has changed so very much! In the past 2 months she has accomplished so much...we are just so very proud! Sophia is.... smiling, beginning to laugh, follows us with her eyes and head, when she hears noises or voices she is searching all around to see what is near. She likes it very much when we sing to her (most favorite is I've got that Joy Joy Joy Joy down in my heart!), she is eating about 6-7 oz every 3 1/2 -4 hrs and we just started on the rice cereal this morning (YIKES, so messy)! The cereal will hopefully help with her acid reflux and colic!

We just stopped nursing this week (past Tuesday, she just was not having it any longer!) Makes me so sad! She enjoys a bath (this is totally my child, because I could just live in a bathtub)! This is a photo of her Honey giving her a bath!

She is taking about 2 hours naps after her daytime feedings and sleeps about 4 hours in between her nighttime feedings. One night she slept for 9 hours, I was so concerned, I kept checking on her!!

She has had many visitors, the first month she was born, family members, girls from the church, friends, my PEO sisters would stop in for a visit and bring us meals. We were very lucky, I do not know when we would have eaten meals had it not been for someone bringing us food, we could have starved.

We have not gone out very often, just visits to Honey and Granddaddy's house, over to see Uncle Ryan and Auntie LeAnne, we have been to the doctors office, Belk (yay!), a PEO meeting (this is big), and 2 ladies luncheons with Amie and Lauren! Our biggest trip was to the Razorback game to watch those HOGS play Georgia (Boo, but she looked cute)!
Today, she started wearing size 1 diapers (no more newborn size), she is 8 lbs 6 oz. She is enjoying her tummy time, and is holding her head up all by herself, for quite a long time (we say she is very independent)!
Did I mention, we are just so in love with our sweet Sophia!
Love yal!

Wow!! Eight weeks old, it does fly by looking back. But in the moment it can drag by. What a big girl!! So glad she is doing well.
