Little Miss Piggy

That's Lily's new nickname! She had a weight check today to make sure she had regained her birthweight. Little Miss Piggy was 6lbs, 10oz --- a 10oz gain in one week! I think the typical weight gain for a newborn is about an ounce a day, so she definately caught up.

She was 6lbs 5oz at birth (well, 6.59 technically, but I guess they never round up) so she's up 4-5oz from her birth weight.

Lily is starting to be awake a little bit more. What's funny is she sounds like a little pig several times a day! She grunts and groans when she's dealing with gas or digestion. It's kind of cute. Except not in the middle of the night!

Baby certainly loves mama. Her favorite place to sleep at night is in the crook of my arm. She spends her days sleeping in the swing, and is resisting sleeping in the co-sleeper. I need to start putting her in the co-sleeper during the day so she gets used to it.

But really, I'm not complaining. She's probably my last baby, so I want to eat all of this up. All my babies have slept with me quite a bit during their first few months and I don't have much problem transitioning them out as they get older.

Little Miss Piggy is turning red in the face and grunting, so I must go rescue her from her gas or whatever issue is going on!
