I took Emma to the doctor today for her 2 week check-up (yes, it was a week late seeing she'll be 3 weeks tomorrow). She now weighs 11 pounds, 2 ounces. She is doing quite well and he said she looks great. He also was amazed at how much hair she has. In fact, 2 nurses had to come look at her hair!
The receptionist asked me if Emma was my first. I love the responses I get when I reply, No, she's my seventh. "OH MY GOODNESS!" she said. (well, she didn't actually say "goodness"). I said, Oh 7's not alot of kids! She just laughed as her eyes about bulged out of her head!
The doc asked me if it was easier or harder now to have a newborn. Oh, much easier now I said because I have so much help! With Paul jr, it was just me and him most of the time and he was a very needy baby. Now, if I need a nap or to take a shower or just a few minutes by myself, I have 5 people who are usually always willing to help out.
That's what people just don't understand about having "alot" of children. It does get easier when you get alot of helpers!
