Yesterday, we went to Amélie’s 2 week check-up. Besides a leaky eye (she’s got a blocked lacrimal gland, but we’re working on that) she’s doing great. Not only has she regained her birth weight, but she has surpassed it (we’re talking a 300g/8oz gain) weighing in at 7lbs 6oz. Yup, the little lady is a champ nurser. Of course, she has also grown, but I don’t know by how much as her hospital records put her birth length at 51cm and her 2 week measurements put her at 50cm *scratches head*. Hehe, that’s what happens when your baby is measured with a tailor’s tape measure on an overbooked and understaffed day I suppose ;).
On another note, Charles is deeply in love with his little sister. At least once per day, when I’m holding his Amélie, he comes up to me, taps on my nursing pillow, outstretches his arms, points to his sister and says “that”. Translation: I want to hold the baby.
