Tess is already two weeks old.. which seems weird to me. I think because the last two week have felt SO LONG it makes me feel as though she has been around longer.
(waiting the for Doctor).
Tess went to the Dr yesterday for her two week check up. Here is what we learned.
Height- 20 3/4 inches (she has grown almost an inch)
Weight- 7.53 (operation get Tessa fat is currently underway)
Head size- 14 inches
Here is what I have learned about Tessa Love in these two weeks
she really doesn't cry unless she is hungry, tired, needs to burp, or has a dirty diaper
she likes baths, (tends to fall asleep in bath because she is so relaxed)
She loves the sound of her dad's voice (will practically whip her head in any direction she heres him talking)
She is getting really good at sleeping! A typical night these days consists of her "last" feeding at midnight, and then she will sleep until four or five in the morning, eat again, and then sleep until nine.
I am totally ok with this sleep pattern. Keep it up Tessa, and I will give you extra snuggles as a reward.
and lastly..... sometimes Tessa resembles the angry Sicilian Vizzini from the Movie Princess Bride.... you all know who I am talking about.
compare shall we??
Uncanny right??? ;)

I have been trying to motivate myself for weeks now to pack those pesky hospital bags for the big arrival. well, yesterday the diaper bag came in the mail, and I suppose that motivated me a smidge more to pack pack pack!
here is what we've got so far...
all baby's stuff, boy and girl outfits to plan accordingly
sweats, robe, slippers, all other necessary and un-necessary clothing items
what we still need amid the hospy loot:
and of course EMILY..... the most important item packed and ready to go in SF.

so the last couple of months have been filled with baby prep.... and when I say filled I really mean, once every three weeks we would kinda work on stuff..... and when I say we, I really mean Joey. I would just stand around and bark orders..... hehee.
these pictures are of Charlie. Apparently putting up crown molding takes much more work than you would ever anticipate. like having to move air vents in the ceiling! shheeesh.
Anyways, this is the final-ish product.
