Evie 2 Weeks

Evie is 2 weeks old today!  I can't believe how quickly time is flying.  We had her 2 week check-up with the base pediatrician today, and everything looks great!  It seems like she is going to potentially take after her maternal grandmother, sizewise, as she is perfectly healthy but tiny.  Her stats are:
Height:  19 1/2 inches, 17th percentile
Weight:  7 pounds, 12th percentile
Head Circumference:  (they didn't give me the actual measurement) 15th percentile
She is eating great - every 3 hours during the day and every 4 at night - and she has to be woken up to eat at night to boot!  The doctor says that after 6 or 8 weeks we can let her go as long as she wants to at night.  I can't wait, but still feel fortunate to have such a great sleeper right now.  She also already has great head control, and is able to lift her head and turn it to one side, then all the way around to the other shoulder and then back again before setting it down during tummy time.  We are amazed by our sweet, tiny little girl!
