Growth Spurt!!

Today was Brigette's two week well-check. The doctor told us it's about this time that babies should be back up to their birth weight, which for Brigette, would be 6lbs even. Apparently, she had a monster growth spurt though because she weighed in at 6lbs 9oz!! And measured 20 1/2 inches long! In 10 days, she gained a whole pound and grew an inch and a half!! Wow!

I knew she was growing, but I didn't expect that! Here she is all stretched out on daddy's lap.

We finally got her third bilirubin screening results back and her number was 12.3 (down from 14.0). Because it was dropping and her eating habits and weight gain are so good, the doctor said we don't have to poke her anymore, woohoo!! He also said that because of her weight gain and awesome eating and sleeping habits, she doesn't need to come back for a one month well-check. She's already doing the things he'd be checking for at that appointment. During the day she eats every 2 1/2-3 hours and at night she goes about every 4 1/2-5. That makes for a very happy mommy :) Especially since she's still being a fantastic nurser!

And now for a fun, random moment about Carrie. Even though it's still stinkin' hot around here, Carrie loves to go play in the backyard. Last night she was out playing before bedtime and Justin peeked out the window to see her doing this... Making a sand angel.... Looks like someone's going to need a bath!

Apparently grass angels are fun too ;)
