8 lbs!

My baby girl is 8 lbs today, another milestone! We had her 4 month checkup this week and the doctor noted she had started to fall off the growth chart, so I have started giving her a couple bottles of breastmilk daily in addition to nursing. Not only has her weight picked up but she has been less fussy! Paityn had her 4 year checkup as well and she is doing great. She is kind of small (25th percentile in weight and height) but the doctor said that’s fine. Funny since as a baby she was in the 90th percentile for height!

Christmas shopping is all done and the wait has begun in ernest. Paityn is so excited she doesn’t know what to do with herself. Just a few more days! 🙂
