We went for our second visit yesterday-- a little late due to some insurance confusion-- and at almost 6 weeks, Kate is 10lbs 9oz and 22 1/2 inches long... She grew 2 1/2 inches since birth and has gained 2 1/2 pounds. Her poor little head though is still small-- only in the 25% percentile.. Mommy didn't mind that on the way out though in the beginning either. But everything else is 70-75% percentile.
She is also smiling a lot;but we haven't been quick enough with the camera the last couple of days to catch it. She definitely recognizes different voices like mine and Travis' and responds in kind with smiles. She is also finally finding her voice and cooing a little more than grunting. A real accomplishment for our little "piglet" who grunted her way through the first 6 weeks. She has great head control and can scooch around in her crib if she is left to cry. She loves water and goes in the pool almost everyday. After the pool and a shower, she falls asleep so fast, I can't get her in the crib fast enough.
Together we are working on a schedule. Getting to bed is quite a feat since we are trying to aim for a 7:30pm bedtime. Some nights it works and sometimes it doesn't, like last night after shots. And most mornings she wakes up at 4am for a feeding and then goes back to sleep. I am one lucky mom. And she is a great little girl.
