Abby had her 2-week checkup on Monday and all looks good. Here are the stats:
*She weighed 7 lbs 4 oz (the rule of thumb is that she should have been at least up to her birth weight, which was 6 lbs 13 oz)
*She gained 17 ounces in 11 days (the rule of thumb is that they gain 1 oz per day)
*She is 17th percentile for weight and 88th percentile for height (21.5 inches)
We are planning a week-long business trip to Atlanta. We'll be taking the girls with us -- and my cousin, Kayli, has agreed to come with us to watch them during the day and a half of meetings Bill needs me for. I don't know what I'd do without her, I was feeling a lot of angst about leaving a 5-week-old baby with an unseen babysitter in another state. So we are busy introducing a bottle to make all go smoothly. I pumped a bottle and went to book club tonight, and came back to this:
Bill propped the bottle up, left the room, and when I came home Abby was sucking away on an empty bottle. Luckily she burped pretty easily so she must not have been sucking on the empty bottle too long.
