Rebekah and the Bear (4/29/09)

We've got a very busy month of traveling in May, so we're attempting to get Rebekah more mobile. She loves to relax and walk around in the Baby Bjorn and just look around. Despite her almost constant eating, Rebekah has slipped to the bottom of the weight spectrum for babies of her age, but the doctor isn't worried at all. He says she's healthy as a petite little ox, and thinks her increasing length might have something to do with her slow weight gain.

Rebekah and the Bear (4/22/09)

Rebekah has been doing great this week! We find out Thursday if she's gained enough weight to satisfy the pediatrician. We've been making sure she's awake while eating and even gave her a bottle for the first time. Of course she ate it--she eats all the time!

Rebekah also had her first two experiences with childcare. Kristie was a little nervous leaving her the first time, but Rebekah's charm and constant talking made her a star of the nursery.

Whose Daughter Am I?

Interspersed among the pictures of Rebekah are pictures of Kristie and James as babies. We haven't labeled which of us each of the baby pics are, but have numbered them.

Who do you believe Rebekah favors (comments can be left below--if you don't have a gmail account you can just choose to post as Anonymous)?

Rebekah and the Bear (4/15/09)

Rebekah had her 6-week checkup and her first set of shots on Tuesday: 21 3/4 inches long (21 in. at birth) and 7 lbs. 5 oz. (7 lbs. 3 oz. at birth; 6 lbs. 3 oz. at her one-week checkup). She is perfectly healthy right now, although the pediatrician wants to keep an eye on her weight. When she was born she was in the 33rd percentile and now she's in the 25th percentile, but she's still gaining an acceptable 1/2 oz. per day. We chose the shirtless and sockless picture so you can see what a chunk she really is--no ribs can be seen.

This weekend we're addressing a controversial subject on this blog: who Rebekah looks like, her mother or father. Check back and weigh in if you'd like to do so!

Rebekah and the Bear (4/8/09)

Rebekah is 5 weeks old and doing great! She gets out of the house almost every day, usually to Wal-Mart to buy some diapers (she won't fit in her reusable diapers yet). She's doing a lot of smiling and cooing these days. She sleeps through the nights quite a bit, despite taking naps such as the one pictured below--usually her dad is laying where Bear was today.

Rebekah and the Bear (4/1/09)

This bear is really enormous, isn't it? She may be 30 before she's bigger than it is.

Look at how long those little legs are!


Just wanted to share a small clip of Rebekah waking up after 6 1/2 hours of sleep. Who knew waking up could be so cute?
