Hooray!

5 oz weight gain in 5 days! This is good. Must be getting over her virus and (hopefully) back on track. We also measured her length last night at 23.5, which puts her roughly between the 25th and 50th percentiles; although, her weight is still squarely in the 10th percentile.


I know, we're a little obsessed with her size and weight, but we've had so many feeding issues so early that it's hard not to be. Plus, we're both so tall that I think we really expected to have a big baby instead of a tiny one. We'll get over it and eventually I'll stop being so preoccupied with her size. I promise. For now, bear with me, and thanks to all of you who keep reassuring me that she's fine. It does help.
