This week Samantha had her one month check up at the doctor. She had a great report, is gaining weight like a champ, and was in perfect health (minus a small case of thrush). She weighed 9 pounds, 3 ounces, up from 7-11 at the last appointment. She also proved to be very strong, holding her head up and almost rolling over, so I'm sure I will blink and she'll be walking.
To us she looks like such a chubby baby... her clothes are finally beginning to fit, her face and body are filling out, and the size 1-2 diapers actually fit her now. But, for a little perspective, she weighted an ounce LESS than Addison did when she was born! For some reason that just astounds me.... it also makes me feel a bit better about how giant my belly got the first time!
Overall, Sam is doing great! She is smiling every now and then, awake more often, and last night she slept for five whole hours at one time. I see sleep in my future and it looks GREAT.
