So as I previously posted, our little Ellie was smaller than we anticipated due to an unknown problem with her umbilical cord.  She was 5 lbs 8.5 ounces at birth on Monday and 5 pounds 2.5 ounces  Wednesday night.  We took her to her first pediatrition appointment today (her 1 week birthday) and she was 5 pounds 15 ounces!  That's a 12.5 ounce weight gain in 5 days!  All breastmilk!  I'm so pleased!

Expecting baby #1 August 8th 2012! It's a girl!
