Meagan - 2 weeks, 1 day old

Today I weighed Meagan at the Health Unit. I am a little more nervous about her weight gain than I was with Kaitlyn as I was able to top up Kaitlyn with formula due to her low birth weight. But with Meagan, the doctor has given me permission to top her up, but every time we do, she spits up - and not just a little, the entire feed. So I am exclusively nursing Meagan, hence the nervousness since you can't measure how much she is actually taking in.

Today she is 7 lb, 13.5 oz. When she was born, she was 6 lb, 14 oz and when we left the hospital she was 6 lb, 8 oz, so I guess she is doing well with nursing.

She is a little stuffed up, but overall, a content baby so far. The stuffy nose made for more awake time last night than I would like, but I am hoping this cold of hers clears quickly and we can get on some sort of nighttime schedule soon.

Here is a picture from the photo session my sister, Andrea, did the other day. Hopefully I'll be able to share more soon :)
