Abby is 1 week old today! She had her first doctor appointment Thursday and she weighed 6 lbs 3 oz. That puts her in the 9th percentile for weight, 95th for length. I took her back on Friday just to check her weight and she weighed 6 lbs 7 oz, so her weight is coming back up quickly. (I'd also just fed her on Friday, wish I'd done that right before her Thursday appointment.)
My mom has been here since Tuesday helping out and it has been wonderful to have her here! Sandy has loved - and needed - all the attention her grandma has given her. Sandy is a great big sister - she's gentle with her sister and she loves giving Abby kisses. This has been a major disruption in her routine, though, and she's been a bit of a pill, especially about going to bed at night. The first couple of nights were particularly rough -- every time Abby cried it woke Sandy up.
I borrowed this idea from my friend, Jen: I went to makeaonesie.com and made Abby a onesie that says "Sandy's Baby Sister" and a matching one for Sandy that says "I'm the big sister."
We tried to set up a photo shoot this afternoon, but Abby wasn't feeling very cooperative. I was hoping to get a cute picture of Abby to use for birth announcements, but I guess we'll have to try another time.
