edith: 1 week old

age: one week old
stats: she is actually closer to 21" and not the originally reported 20.5"; at her first well-visit she was down an ounce from her birth weight at 8 pounds, 9 ounces
firsts: zoo trip, pediatrician, trick or treat (in the Ergo), bath at home
milestones: not a milestone per se, but edith was tongue tied and needed to get that corrected at the ENT yesterday
goings-on: edith nurses anywhere from once per hour (sometimes less if she is having belly troubles) to stretches that surpass 3.5 hours, though those are rare. nights are still hit or miss with less than hour-long stretches of sleep ranging to the magical 3.5 hour stretch. she is also notorious for pooping mid diaper change - at the zoo today i went through 4 diapers in one change because the second i got it under her butt she pooped more. so if you are a lucky family member or friend who is changing her: you hath been warned. she lost a piece of her umbilical stump yesterday (*shudder*) but there's still a bit there. jon and i are looking forward to her second week so we can implement (or at least try to implement...) the moms on call schedule to make our lives more predictable.
