Katie's 2 week appointment

Katie's 2 week appointment was today. She is 2 weeks, 2 days old. Here are her stats:

Weight: 7 lbs 12oz

Height: 21 inches

She weighed 7 lbs 8.8oz at birth so she is above her birth weight, which is what her doctor looks for at the 2 week checkup. She is eating well so I am not surprised she has exceeded her birth weight. She doesn't really have a specific nighttime sleep pattern yet but every couple of nights, she will sleep for 5 hours in one stretch. That makes for a very happy mom the next day!

She is already starting to lift her head to get a look at the world around her. Her cord still hasn't fallen off yet so she doesn't get too much tummy time. She just uses the time on your shoulder as tummy time to lift her head and work her neck muscles.

Here are some pictures of Katie for your viewing pleasure!

She is just precious! I can't believe she's already sleeping 5 hours at a time during the night! That's awesome! How is big brother handling the changes?
