My Two Week Stats

Valentina here!  I went to my two-week appointment today with Salvatore and mommy and had a nice check up.  I now weigh 8lbs. 4 oz. and am 20.5 inches long.  Up a whole pound and one inch longer since leaving St. Jude.  My jaundice is completely gone and my doctor was very impressed with me holding my head up, enjoying my tummy time, and my reflexes.  Salvatore was very well behaved during my visit and was quick to tell my doctor that, no,  she MAY NOT take me home with her.  Things have been great at home also...lots of visitors, thoughtful presents, and everyone still loves to hold me constantly.  I am sleeping a lot during the day and pretty well at night, but I know my mommy isn't complaining...she says the nighttime is OUR SPECIAL ALONE TIME.  Thank you all for your continued prayers and for keeping my brother and I in your thoughts!


  1. I hope I can see you soon!

  2. She's a beauty! I love that little half-smile expression on her face. Before you know it, her big brother will be making her smile and giggle, which will make YOU smile and giggle too. Enjoy your time at home with them - it's something you just can't replace !

  3. Dear Valentina,
    You have the BEST mommy! I love her lots, too!
    Auntie Susan
    p.s. Can't wait to meet you!

  4. She is sooooo beautiful! Glad to hear things are going so well. I can't wait to hold her again.

  5. I'm so happy she's sleeping well for you. She looks even more beautiful now since the last time I saw her! I wouldn't expect any less from her knowing who she's related to. It seems like an eternity since I met her (instead of 10 days).

  6. She is a cutie! Sounds like all has fallen into place. Congrats again on your family of four:)
