June 10

Isla had her official one week checkup today. She weighed in at 6 lbs, 1 oz (4%). That means she is back to her birth weight, which is a good thing. She gained about 5 oz. since Monday. She was 19 3/4 inches long (33%).

The doctor gave us the okay to stop waking her up to eat every 2 hours at night (though she still has to eat every 3 hours at night and every 2 hours during the day). I'm curious to see what she will do tonight. She is still not eating very much at a time (about 1.5 oz.), so I know she will still wake up to eat frequently. And while we can barely keep her awake during the day, it seems like she is more alert in the middle of the night. I'm hoping that she will sleep at least one 3 hour stretch tonight...because her mommy and daddy are kind of tired!

She was awake for about a half hour this afternoon, so I took advantage and took some pictures of her with her eyes open. Here she is showing you how she is getting "so big." Okay, well she is not really so big yet, but I know that she will be far too soon!
And here she's showing off her skinny legs and huge feet! (Audrey was the same...skinny legs and long feet. I was worried that Audrey would have giant, disproportionate feet as she grew up, but so far her feet have actually been a little on the small side.)
