first doctor appointment

On Wednesday Audrey went to her first checkup.  She was 2 weeks and a day old.  Now she weighs 7 pounds 2 1/2 ounces.  Up 2 ounces from her birth weight and back up from 6 pounds 11 ounces when we left the hospital.  She is now 19 inches long.  Crazy how they grow…a half inch in such a short time.  The doctor did say she was a little jaundicey, so she has been laying on her little “untanning” bed to get her billirueben levels back down to normal.  And she looks so much better now.  We go on Monday morning to have a blood check done to be sure.

Things are still good.  We had one crazy night of every hour feedings (because of the b.r blanket I think)  but still she is doing so well and being such a good girl.  Everyday I am in awe of her and more in love.  I feel so blessed to be given this special gift to raise, take care of and love.  Being a mom is the best thing that has ever happened to me!
