3 weeks

Ella was 3 weeks old on Wednesday.  My how the time flies by when you have a new born (and are not sleeping!)  At her 2-week appointment, she was already well past her birth weight (7 lbs 6 oz) and had already grown another inch and a half (to 20 1/2 in).  I'm so thankful that she's such a great eater!

We've had tons of help with family here since before she was born.  On Saturday afternoon, we will be on our own for the first time since she was born.  It's been so great to have all the help - now the real test will begin!  We will need a few days I am sure to figure it all out, but hopefully will settle into a routine soon.  Here are a few more pictures of the growing girl!
