Today, Grace and I headed up to Yakima for a weigh-in. (Not mine - thank God!!) At her two week appointment, she had gained back the weight that she lost after birth and even gained a few ounces. (When she was born she weighed 9.3 lbs and at her two week check-up she weighed 9 lbs. 5 1/2 oz.) They thought that a baby of her size could have gained more weight in that time even though they thought she looked healthy and she was eating well. As of today, she weighs 9 lbs. 13 oz. so she is eating and gaining at an appropriate rate. It still blows my mind that she is already 3 weeks old. Some days it feels like she was born yesterday but most nights it feels like I have been a mother for a lifetime!
Hopefully, I will be able to get a few more postings and pictures of her/us over the last few weeks! We'll see how it goes!
Here are a few pictures of Grace resting peacefully last Friday (1/2/09).
