Olivia Goes Back To The Doctor

Olivia had her second doctor appointment.

She still hates being naked. And weighed.

BUT...

She is gaining!

She weighed a whopping six pounds fourteen ounces! She gained ten ounces in five days.  Putting her in the nineteenth percentile!


The doctor was even impressed! He told us the average baby only gains an ounce a day. Plus takes two weeks to get back to their birth weight. Our little girl gained two ounces a day. AND is not only back to her birth weight but over it by five ounces at just a week old!

Can you tell Liv was even impressed with herself?


They also had to do the second PKU. I didn't think it was going to be a big deal at all since Liv didn't even notice the first one. This go around she took it personal. It was horrible. She hated every second of it. I hated every second of it. Preston hid in a corner.

I should also mention that while we LOVE our pediatrician his new nurse she sucks. She doesn't seem to be able to answer any of my questions. And she made my baby cry.

Once we'd all calmed down we were able to really celebrate Olivia's weight gain! My big girl! Oh...and she was twenty and a quarter inches!  Clearly she was not nineteen and a half inches at her last appointment!  Her new length put her in the sixty sixth percentile for height!  My tall and skinny baby girl!
