She's growing so fast!

I can't believe it! Audree is ten days old now. She's changed so much. She now sleeps in her bassinet...she did it for the first time last night. Thank goodness--I'm scared of co-sleeping. She's also have more quiet awake times throughout the day, where she likes to play and learn. It's so neat to see her little eyes follow your voice and watch her learn. She's incredible!

Last Thursday was her first doctor's appointment. She was born at 10 lbs, 2.5 oz. She left the hospital last Monday at nine pounds even. On Thursday, she weighed 10 lbs, 12 oz and had grown a full inch! The doctor also recommended we give her Tri-Vi-Sol vitamins. It's vitamins A, C and D...and they made her really sick. We gave them to her on Friday morning and she ended up spitting up and...stuff, all day long. She didn't sleep well all night, either. Apparently breastfeeding mothers absorb all their Vitamin D, which babies need for strong bones (Vitamin D helps you absorb Calcium). The doctor felt we needed a supplement but after seeing what it did to her, we won't be continuing it.

We had some friends come in from New York yesterday. They have twin boys (!) so we all went to the Aquarium...last time I was there, I went into labor! Here are some pics from our adventures:
