These milestones actually leads us to the other news. Little E had a doctors appointment yesterday for a normal check-up and of course she got weighed. Now we were there 3 weeks ago and she was 7 pounds 8.5 ounces. We assumed she was easily over 8 pounds but nearly fell over when she was weighed at 9 POUNDS 6.5 ounces! Whoa. Now I realize that there are some babies are born at this but we're talking a child who was 2 pounds 5 ounces. She is actually on the normal growth chart (not the adjusted age) and it's cute because she's at 1%. Hey at least she's on it! She has come so far and we feel so blessed she is doing so well. She's getting stronger all the time and doing a great job having periods where she really holds her head up.
SSG are hanging in there and do have days of just exhaustion. Like all babies Little E has her good days and her bad days. We just try to roll with it the best we can.
