are you sick of metta pictures yet??

Metta's first bath looks eerily similar to Ike's first bath. even the same dirty dishes.


Metta had her two week follow up visit today and was a total champ.  She was awake and wide eyed the entire time- with no tears!  and then promptly fell back asleep once we put her in her car seat.
and she's back up to birth weight- now actually three ounces over- 8 pounds 8 ounces.
I'm pretty sure that I have the world's best sleeping newborns.  it can be hard to wake them up to feed- but I'm not going to complain that my babies sleep too much!!
She honestly almost never cries- but if she does- this is what Ike does immediately.  It's the only form of acknowledgement he makes toward her.  He honestly doesn't touch her- or talk to her- or even talk about her.  Kent was holding both of them on his lap last night and their legs touched so Ike quickly retracted his leg so they wouldn't touch anymore.
I'm a little worried these kids are going to have fried brains pretty soon.
This week has been much better- but they are still spending far more time than normal in front of the tv!!  with the warm weather we've been outside more- and spent some time with friends- but they are getting in more than their fair share of lightsaber wii battles and donkey kong.  In fact- first thing Ike says when he wakes up in the morning is: "can I play super mario brothers??".
 
Here's miss metta after her doctor's appointment. Sleeping.

I think she's a lot cuter than our boys were at this age. Is it because she's a girl?  or am I just jaded now?  do I think she's so cute- when in actuality she's really goofy looking?!  maybe it's the bows.

She really is a pretty baby - I think anyone looking objectively could not deny it. I will NEVER tire of pictures. Please keep them coming! How much does she weigh? She looks very healthy.

pat- I forgot to include her weight. I'll add it now! she's 8 pounds- 8 ounces- up three ounces since birth.

I love the animal print skirt...a girl is never too young to sport animal print! I think she looks a lot like Zeb and I think she's adorable (but all of your kids are adorable). If anyone tells you that she's goofy-looking, I'll beat them up:)

Oh I just love her. I think she is so cute! I laughed kind of hard at the way Ike is acting. I think I'd pick that over Dalton singing "I don't love baby Stella!" :O)

ben was never fazed by his baby brother when he arrived. he never learnt the word baby or even called him that. It was like it just didn't mean anything to him. Over time Alex was there and ben just accepted him. Ok now he wants to kill him most of the time but don't dispare, the boys will come round, gauranteed one time they will come home and she won't be there and they will actually question where she is because they are so use to her being there. Bows do always make them look cuter, enjoy her.

Your comment about your kids' brains being fried by the tv made me laugh...I can totally relate! It looks like Metta's hair has more red in it than your boys' did. Do you think so, too? She really is cute!
