Thank you to those who have been checking in on me and my apologies for not responding sooner! Layla is now 6 weeks and 2 days old, just over 41 weeks gestationally. She spent the first three weeks of her life in the special care nursery and we were so happy when we were finally able to bring her home. She's keeping me so busy with feedings, pumping, and in general trying to figure her out (what those cries mean!) that there isn't much time for sleep and Mommy is TIRED! I know it'll get better soon, although I still haven't figured out whether she'll follow a developmental schedule more like her actual age or her adjusted age (based on due date). So far there is not much communication going on other than crying, but she has done some exciting things physically - she can roll from tummy to back already, and when held up she has started to support some of her weight in a standing position. My little baby athlete!
