Zoë's 2 week checkup at 12d old...

So she's up from 7.5 to 9.4 -- almost 2 pounds in 10 days! I Also grew 2.25 inches in length. She's going to be a big girl! Has a bit of thrush, so have to pic up a scrip for that, and sterilize her bottles and bink every day for two weeks while on the Rx, but the jaundice is gone so no more required sun time. Overall, healthy little baby.

Did a second newborn screen (no shots this time and none until she's 2mo) -- that's just awful. Prick her little heel and then bleed her. :smileysad: Makes me feel so bad, but I snuggle her real close and tight and she does ok. Screams bloody murder at first but calms a bit, mostly wimpers, not that blood-curdling crying.

Next visit is at about 1m, on Sept. 4.

Here's her passed out after her ordeal.

And another one with her Libby taken yesterday. We take entirely too many pics of this little girl. :smileyhappy: She's the best little thing ever. Doesn't fuss unless you dilly-dally with the bottle. Other than that, very peaceful babe. We're pretty lucky. :smileyhappy:

She's doing amazing!!!!!! And growing like a flower. We have that heel stick at our 2wk checkup on Thursday. I hate it. Hopefully Johnny gets a memo from Zo and takes it well.

She is just a precious little bundle! Good girl gaining her weight and growing! She's such a little sweetie. What a wonderful experience for Libby to have at her age. She'll be a better mommy when it's her turn because of all this great hands on experience she's getting.

Aw, bummer about losing your helpers!! Is Libby moving out all together or will she just be gone during the day?
