9lbs and 1oz!

That's right!! She weighed 4 pounds and 15 ounces when we brought her home from the hospital and now she weighs 9 pounds and 1oz. She was 19 inches when she was born and now she is 22 inches. It's amazing how fast she is growing!!

I thought we were having pooping issues this week. She had an "explosive" poop at 5 pm on Thursday and did not poop again until we were about to walk out the door today. It was another EXPLOSIVE poop which called for an immediate quick bath in her spa, aka the sink. But, Dr. G said that this is normal for breast fed babies. They can really start to space out their poops around this age. Which is fine by us, but I would rather she not explode all over the place. That's not really lady-like.

He also said that we need to really try to be consistent and get her on a schedule. She's always been on a 3 hr schedule since she was born (eat, play, sleep) but it varies as to when we start each day. So, we are going to work on this. AND, he also said "No more rocking her to sleep." Awwhh...my sweet baby. I love to rock in the perfect rocking chair and I KNOW she does too. But, we have to be really prayerful about this and try to start letting her learn how to fall asleep on her own.

Our little angel is sleeping now. She had 4 shots today that we'd rather not remember. But she took them like a trooper.
