No news is good news!

Nothing new to report! Avery is getting so big and growing like crazy! She is giving lots of smiles now when you talk to her, especially in the morning. She's awake more during the day now.

She is getting over a little cold. Two nights ago she was up for the whole night minus an hour! That was a rough night for mom. She slept so much better last night but she did get up 3 times. She normally only gets up twice. It was fine with me, I'd much rather take that then up all night again. My throat is really sore today so I'm wondering if I'm getting what she had. No wonder she was so fussy! It hurts!

Avery is currently getting bottles of pumped milk during the day and nursing at night. I'm really sore and bleeding. I'm healing though so hopefully we can get back to more nursing during the day. I figured re-introducing the bottle would be a good idea since I will be going back to work at some point. She is doing good with the bottle but still, I think, prefers me. Pumping and then feeding her is very time consuming. It's worth it though.

Hope all is well with everyone! Love you all!

I'll post one.

One month doctors appointment today!

Avery had her one month check up today. I was very anxious to get there and see how much she weighed. I was preparing myself to hear that she needed the bottles again. I didn't want to start crying like I did last time. Avery weighed in at a whopping NINE POUNDS!! She went from 7lbs 3 oz to 9 lbs in two weeks! She also grew another whole inch. She is 22 1/4 inches long now. I'm so proud of my chunky monkey. She has only had a bottle once since her last doctors appointment too. Yay!

She got a shot today too. :( Her second Hepatitis B shot. At her next appointment she will get 4 shots. I don't know how well I'm going to handle that appointment.

I talked to the doctor about the rash on her face too. I told the doctor I was almost positive it was an allergy since it's clearing up with switching the soap. She thinks it's baby acne. Doesn't really matter as long as it's going away. Seems like a lot to be baby acne to me.

I officially need to pack up all her newborn clothes. She is wearing one of her newborn outfits today but the sleeves and pants are too short. Last day for them I think! I never thought she would be in newborn clothes before she was born and she has been in them for 5 weeks. I hope she stays in newborn diapers long enough for me to use them all up.

Yay for a great doctors appointment. She doesn't have to go back for a whole month!

Check out my facebook or myspace for a bunch of new pics. She is so freaking cute!

Love you all!
