Molly Kate is currently asleep on my chest as I write this. She loves to be held and cuddled and I love to do it. She is such a wonderful blessing and such a sweet baby. Life is so good.
Molly Kate was born on May 30th, 2014. She weighed in at 8 lbs, 5 oz and was 20.75 inches long. We had an issue with her weight dropping the first week, but now that my milk is established, she is gaining quickly. Because she was breech for 10 weeks (I was able to get her to flip in the 35th week by visiting a chiropractor that specializes in the Webster Technique), the doctors performed a hip ultrasound. It looks like she has a touch of hip dysplasia. We are due to visit the pediatric orthopedic later this week.
She is a very good baby. She sleeps about 1.5-2 hours between feedings at night and usually goes back to bed without any issues. She spends her days eating (I call her my piggie), hanging out in our arms or sleeping in her moses basket or Mamaroo. Both Emily and Jacob are crazy about her. They are so excited to have a baby sister.
Life with 3 kids is so different! And having a baby at 31 is a whole lot different than having a baby at 21 (Emily and Molly Kate are 10 years and 17 days apart). I wouldn’t change this for the world though. We are so glad that she is finally here.
I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday!
