Kayla's checkup!

Yesterday we had Kayla's first checkup in 2 months. She weighed 10lb 6oz. I am such a proud mama. She is doing so good. The doctor said normally with preemie babys they have there own growth chart but with Kayla she is already on the charts with her peers. She is at the lower end of the chart but at least she is on it. She is 5% for head and length and about 25% for weight. It is her weight that the doctors are most pleased with. Good thing that girl likes to eat. She did get her shots, poor little thing. She only cried for about a minute and then she was okay. I think the shots wiped her out because I fed her last night at about 8:30 and she slept until 5:30. Our dog was barking and woke us both up. I bet she would have slept longer if the dog hadnt barked. So it is almost 10 o'clock here and she is still sleeping. The doctor thinks she has acid reflux too. Not fun but we are working through it. I am happy to say we are out of the preemie age. She is smiling more and more and starting to be more alert and active. Today our family is going to the apple orchard so we will take a ton of pictures and post them soon.

I'm just glad that every check-up seems to be so positive. What a little fighter she is...hmmmm does that mean she'll be competitive like her mom?
