This morning Aidan woke up and looked at Alayna and said, "mom she has gotten so big". It is true... Alayna is now 6 pounds 3 oz. No wonder she can't fit into any of those preemie clothes or diapers...She is 18 3/4 inches long (2 1/4 inch growth since birth). The doctor was SO pleased with her progress she said I don't even have to wake her up every 3 hours at night to nurse her anymore. Instead she can go 4 hours without feeding and we know from experience that Alayna wakes us up when she has gone that long so no more alarm setting for me. YIPPEE! Next check up with the pediatrician will be her two month visit (& shots).
After the doctors appointment we took the kids to the pottery place and had Aidan's hand prints and Alayna's footprints done on plates to commemorate their ages and size. It was really fun. (I took the camera but, forgot to take it out and use it while we were there.)
This afternoon Jason, Alayna and I are going to the Leann Britain Infant Development Center for a tour and to see what services they have to offer Alayna.
