She weighs in at 5 lbs 8 oz......

Well, Jaylen wasn't quite back up to birth weight today at her check up so we're going back next week to make sure she is gaining weight properly. Just a reminder, her birth weight was 5 lbs 10 oz and she was 5 lbs 8 oz today. They think since she got down so much that it is taking her a little longer to get back up. Other than her weight, she checked out great. We saw Dr. Stephens' nurse specialist today for the appointment. She was very nice and informative. She answered the few questions I had before I actually asked them. She was great.

I can tell Jaylen is growing cause the diapers fit a little differently. She definately isn't growing out of them yet but the straps just don't have to overlap as much! She should start packing on the pounds now that she is almost back to birth weight. She already looks older to me and she's only 2 weeks! I know exactly what parents say when they tell us that kids grow up so quickly and you don't even realize it.

Well, that's about it. I'm starting my thank you notes today and trying to get the christmas cards mailed out as well. Lots to do and not enough time. Is that going to be my life story from here on out?!

Don't worry! It took Cason three weeks to get back to birth weight (6.6 lbs) and then he doubled that in the next month!

And yes...that will be your life story...welcome to the jungle!

Don't you love Dr. Stephens office? They always reassure you by knowing the answer to every question before you ask it. Hope you get everything done this month! Guess I should start thinking about mailing cards...
