Stella Marie: Two Week Weight Check

Stella and I just got back from her two week weight check appointment.  It is ideal that babies gain back their birth weight by the time they are two weeks old.  Last week at her first pediatric appointment, Stella weighed in at 6 lbs., 10 oz.  That's just 5 oz. less than her birth weight, and she wasn't even one week old at that time.  Today, she weighs at WHOPPING 7 lbs., 11 oz.  Our girl is definitely growing!

It seems like I am producing some yummy and fattening milk!  Perhaps it's more like heavy cream!

Anyway, we are very thankful for a healthy girl who eats and poops like a champ.  We go back for a one month check-up in just two weeks, so we'll see how she compares to her brother and sister then when they were each one month old.
