So Far So Good: 2-week pediatrician visit
Yesterday marked Elynor's 2-week birthday, which we celebrated with her first visits to the pediatrician's and Panera (outside the womb, that is:). We must continue to give praise for a healthy, thriving little girl. Her weight was back up to 10 lbs. 12 oz. and she measured 22 inches. We think her birth length must have been measured incorrectly, for, as much as we'd like to think our daughter is advanced, we can't imagine she really grew 2 inches in 2 weeks. All the other vitals also checked out great (though I wonder how the MD really checked them through Elynor's flailing, hungry screams). Possibly making Mom the happiest, the MD said we could go 5 hours between 1 feed per night instead of waking Elynor every 3 or 4 hours (unfortunately, as if she knew this, she decided to wake up on her own every 2 hours for the first time last night - we have our fingers crossed for tonight!).
After a hearty feed, Elynor was a champ, sleeping in her stroller long enough for Mom & Grandma to have lunch at Panera and do some shopping. What a day!
