lanky chunkster

Little Miss finally had her 2 week check-up, a little on the late side. She is now 9lbs, 9oz and 23.5 inches long with a 14.5 inch head. Her last weight check was at 4 days old when she weighed in at 7lbs 6oz. So in just over 2 weeks she has gained more than 2 pounds.... Woohoo! I guess she IS getting enough to eat.

She is well above the 100% for length, 70% for weight, and 50% for her head size.

She has had a little cold for a few days now and had a temp of 100.2. I am so, so thankful it wasn't any higher. At our hospital if your under 2 month old baby has a temp of 100.3 or higher it means an automatic trip to the ER for a spinal tap. Umm, no thank you. We will check it often for the next couple days, but she should be fine. Micah had a similar thing happen at 9 weeks and came super close to getting a spinal tap. Thank God for a compassionate Dr. who spent extra time evaluating him so he could avoid a spinal tap.
