Small Milestones

Little E (as the baby will now be referred to) had some minor milestones over the past week that may not seem like a bit deal to some but for a baby that started out scrawny they seem impressive to us! The first one is that she is officially fitting into most her 0-3 month clothing (some pants are too long for stubby legs) and some of her NB clothes just don't fit anymore. Second, she recently has started napping in her actual crib and she's been doing such a great job sleeping like 3-4 hours at a time. I must say that is quite nice. The other news is that she is officially out of her NB diapers and into a Size 1! I am pretty sure SSG and I were cramming her into the NB diapers for a little too long. Oops. We actually didn't buy any NB since she was born and we actually have quite a few diapers we can pass on. We have both Pamper.s, Hugg.ies, and even the Hugg.ies natural diapers.

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.

Wow! Pushing 10 pounds! She's growing like a weed.

I remember how it felt like such a milestone to switch diaper sizes. You'll be in the next size up in no time. A word to the wise: if you're having trouble with leaks overnight, put her in the next size up at bedtime.

Love to all!
