Pediatrician's Visit

Yesterday we had another doc's visit to check her weight -- they worry about it until newborns gain their birthweight back. As of yesterday afternoon she is 8 lb 10 oz, 3 oz up from 3 days ago, and 3 oz away from her birthweight. They look for a 20-30 gram gain per day, and she's averaging 33 grams per day. Go Pippa! We'll go back on Friday for a weigh-in to see if we're there yet. Once she hits the birthweight, we don't have to keep waking her up for feedings, or track them. Yippee.

Pippa is SOOO beautiful! You all must be so proud. Congratulations!

I hope you all are getting some rest and enjoying getting to know your new family member. We can't wait to meet Pippa!
