It's funny how one of the first questions people asks about babies is "How much does she weigh?" No wonder our culture is obessed with weight!
Well, I hadn't gotten Eden's weight since her 2 month wellness check so I thought I'd go to the lactation center while Claire was at MDO today. At 2 months, she weighed 10 lbs. even and today, being 2 days shy of 3 months, she weighed in at 11 lbs. even. At first I was shocked and wondered if the scale was calibrated but a consultant came in to check. She said it was and then she eased my concern which was so nice of her. She said she looks healthy, has the number of wet diapers she needs, is satisfied after eating and is just low on the scale of weight gain. At this age they should gain 4-7 oz. a week and she is gainig the 4 oz. so she said Eden's good and I shouldn't be worried! All that aside, she is the most perfect little thing I've ever seen! Here she is with her heart cheetah shirt and the most perfect, round tummy! Look at those checks - you'd never think she was only 11 lbs. HA!! You should see her leg and arm rolls just like her sister!
