Abigail’s 1st Week Checkup

Yesterday Abigail turned 1 week old! I feel like she has changed so much already. We met with a new pediatrician due to the fact that Andrew’s doctor is no longer seeing patients on a regular basis. I am now taking her to a local family practice and the young doctor was wonderful. He spent a lot of time with her and answered every question I had. I am glad I found someone so close and that is so good! Anyway Abigail’s appointment went well! She lost a few ounces, but the doctor said that it was to be expected. We will go for a weight check at 3 weeks. At birth she weighed exactly 9lbs and yesterday she was 8 lbs 12 oz. Her height remained the same as birth, 21 inches. She is in the 90th % for weight and height. I just can’t believe that! Andrew was and still is around the 25th in height and weight.

So how is she doing?

Height/Weight: 8lbs 12 oz and 21 inches

Eating: She eats about every 2 to 3 hours and takes anywhere from 1 1/2 to 3 ounces at a times. She has gone 4 hours at night.

Sleeping: Abigail is going to sleep around 8 or 9pm and waking around 12am, 3am, and 6am. Sometimes it takes an hour and sometimes she hasn’t eaten and gone back to sleep in 30 mins. It just depends. She does go back to sleep after 6 and usually sleeps about 2 more hours, but Andrew wakes around 6. I am doing pretty well on not much sleep!

Eating and sleeping is about I can update on for now. That is about all this girl does! However, she wanted to be WIDE awake while having her picture made today.

She is wore out now!
