I was at work all day and wondering when I'd be able to take my 2 month vaca... little did i know it would start in 24 hours!
Tate had her one week checkup today (even though she's technically not 1 week till tomorrow, at 10:35 pm)
Dr. Arnold is her pediatrician and I love him. He was one of the on call doc's at the hospital, and the moment he walked in and I saw the plastic chameleon on his stethoscope I knew he was the doctor for us! :-)
She had dropped down to 6 lbs 1 oz when we left the hospital on thursday, but is back up to her birth weight exactly today! I guess it usually takes babies about 2 weeks to get back to birth weight but not this little eater! Dr. Arnold said she was a really good feeder and looks very healthy over all. I was so relieved to hear that she was getting enough food!
Its pretty stressful keeping track of every time she eats, and making sure it hasn't gone to long in between feedings, and getting enough diapers!
We discovered a little red birthmark on the back of her head under all that hair. Its about the size of a nickle and Dr Arnold said it will probably disappear by the time shes 4.
I actually got dressed the last two days, and it feel so good to get ready instead of sitting in Greg's t-shirts and basketball shorts all day. It was really good to be out of the house too. We were driving home from her appointment and had to try and think of more errands we could run before we headed back home! Tomorrow I think we're gonna try and go on a walk. Get the dishes returned from our great neighbors the Whites who made us dinner 2 nights last week! And to get little T some sunshine.
Its so funny, she looks different every day. Gets cuter every day for sure. Her cheeks are filling out more. I cant wait till that yucky cord falls off so I can give her a real bath. Today she decided that when the poopy diaper comes off to change into the next one, that is the time to pee all over before mom and dad know what hit them. I think it happened 3 times today!
And there was a mystery pee that got all over the bedspread and her back, but left the diaper completely dry! I seriously don't know what happened there.
Tomorrow is Dad's last day home with us before school and work start again. I dont know what I'm going to do without him here to help me, he has been SO AWESOME this whole week. He got the diaper changing down pat, and the swaddling. He holds her when she cries, and has been cleaning up after us. The two night time meltdowns when she would not go back to sleep, he totally took over and let me get the rest! Just brought her in to eat. I really might cry when he goes to school wednesday morning. Thanks so much Greg!! We loooooovve you!
