baby papsan chair

A friend from work gave us this little seat for Ainsley. We tried it out today, and she was enjoying it until she realized that she wasn't being snuggled. That was the end of that. I think it will come in quite handy when Mama needs a shower, though. :)

We also saw the doctor today and he was quite impressed with Ainsley's weight gain. When we left the hospital a week ago, she weighed 6 lbs 13 ozs. Friday she was down to 6 lbs 8.5ozs. The doctor and lactation consultant were both mildly concerned about the loss, so we scheduled more appointments for follow up this week. It seems that my milk just needed a few days to catch up with Ainsley's appetite. On Tuesday she was up to 7 lbs 3.5 ozs and today she surpassed her birth weight (which babies are expected to be back to by 2 weeks) at 7 lbs 8.5 ozs! Everyone is so impressed with her. This is really great news for all of us since we were a little worried.

That's all for now...

It's normal for babies to drop weight a little at first. Sounds like she's doing just fine. I'm having fun reading of your adventure. Babies really are quite amazing and wonderful.
