Allie's 1st appointment

We had Allie's first Dr. appointment on Friday.

Everything looks great! She weighed 7lbs 8oz, so I have no doubt that she will pass her birth weight in a week! She was 7lb 10oz at birth, and I'm not sure what she was when we left. They never told me!!

She's a petite little thing! When she was born, we all (including the nurses) guessed 6-something. I was floored when they said 7lb 10oz!!! I don't know where she puts it!

Barely any of her newborn stuff fits her! She's been able to wear a couple of outfits, but for the most part, she stays in her little gowns. They're comfortable and making diaper changing easy, so I can't complain. I just hate how they bunch up all of the time, lol.

Her sleeping is great and she's still doing awesome with breastfeeding! I've even been able to start pumping to get some saved up for when I got back to work and/or school!
She wakes up twice a night. Typically around 2:00-3:00, eats, is awake for about an hour, and then doesn't get up again until 6:00-7:00. I can't complain at all!!

With Aiden, he was up about every 2hrs! Breastfeeding didn't go all that well with him, so I was a little nervous this time around.

...Sounds like she's waking up! She passed out around 7:15, and it's going on 11:00 now. You can imagine what my boobs feel like, seeing as how I'm used to her eating every 2-3hrs. LOL..yup! she's up! I can hear her in there sucking on her fists, lol
