Doctor's appointment

Whitney’s morning appointment with the pediatrician went well today. She grew a quarter of an inch from last week, but unfortunately didn’t gain any weight. The doctor was not concerned one bit though and said 11 ounces over two weeks is very good. Since she didn’t eat before the appointment she was hungry and wide awake. This was actually a good thing because the doctor could finally see her awake and moving around. He said numerous times how happy he was with how good she looked, he was really proud of her. She was kicking and moving her arms and legs, tracking with her eyes and even let out a cry when he was “annoying” her.
We are now moving up to 4 ounces every 4 hours and will have her next appointment in two weeks rather than every week.
She continues to eat and sleep very well. The last three nights she has been sleeping 5-6 hours at night, what a blessing. Her monitor has not gone off either. I am still in awe over this girls progress, she truly is such a fighter. To see how far she has come in just over a month is incredible, I love her so much. We are so proud to call her our daughter and every little milestone means more than the world to us. We are so blessed to have her in our life.


  1. Such a sweet girl! Looks like the red hair is popping out now, glad to hear a good report and don't worry about weight as long as she is eating as much as the doctors want her to...Garrett still weighs under 30 lbs and he's over 3 years old! :) Love you guys!

  2. You lucky dog!! 5-6 hrs. a night? I used to dream about that day (during my cat naps.) Be very thankful that she sleeps that well- it really helps with the sanity issue. So proud of Whitney and you guys as well. Keep up the great work!!
