The Maternal Child Health Nurse came to visit today for Amelia's first official checkup. Poor child is almost a month old and has not had her newborn exam, or her two week assessment recorded - but with the amount of tests she's had, I'm sure we have all the details, just on a million pieces of paper instead of in her neat little book.
She's doing wonderfully. Still feeding 3 hourly, although last night she fed at 11pm then not again until 3am and then 7am. The night before she'd fed almost every hour and I was stuffed by morning, then she decided she was going to sleep all day and I decided she wasn't. She won. It's actually REALLY hard to wake a baby up if they don't want too LOL. So I was thinking I'd have another marathon feed night, but she was good to me.
As of today (just after a feed) she weighed 3070g (6lb 7oz)... We've popped the 3kg mark :) She put on 190g in 8 days (much better than Liam's 10g a week!) I don't have a lenth for her yet. Sure I could measure her myself, but who has time to worry about that, and third baby... it's not like shes going to be shrinking.
I had to pack up one of her suits. She outgrew it already :( Brett's sister bought her some tiny clothes when she was born, but she only ended up wearing clothes once at Frankston, and not for long. They constantly need access to the tubes and wires and stickies, so it's easier to just have them nude, and being in the isolette, she was warm.
Now, my next predicament... I need a photo for a canvas. And I can't choose. Any opinions on either of these, or any from the last set? I also need to choose a photo for her (our) thankyou's and as much as I love these, the first thing people comment on when they see her is her hair, and there will be thankyou's going out to people who have never seen her, so as much as I love this hat, I need a pic with her hair showing. I took some more tonight, but she looks like a boy in them LOL Need some pink. (did I just say that?)
OK, I need sleep. And she's just waking up.
