Our Big Girl

Today was Chloe's first pediatrician appointment. I gotta tell ya, so much more planning goes into getting ready with a newborn, even with the help of my mom. WOW!

Her doctor didn't need to see her for 2 weeks, but the nervous first time mom that I am, scheduled her appointment for 1 week. I wanted to be reassured that she is growing and getting plenty of food. It is so hard for me to tell, since I've chosen to breastfeed.

Great news! She is healthy and thriving. She has grown half an inch, so up to 21.5 inches now. Her birth weight was 8 lbs 4 oz, discharge weight was 7 lbs 9 oz (that was Sunday) and today our daughter weighed in at 8 lbs 8 oz! That was great news for us- TONS of weight taken off my shoulders.

Healthy baby, healthy baby, healthy baby! I just feel like singing it!
