She's 10lbs 14oz today! She put on 600 grams (1lb 13oz) in just over 2 weeks. I'm pretty impressed. A few comments from my mother regarding High Butter Fat Milk (she grew up on a dairy farm, she can't help it), and I'm looking at a little girl who's no longer got that newbie look! At least, I think so.
One thing that made me chuckle today was the fact that the Plunket (Well Child) nurse said "Wow, she's so BIG for a 6 week old!". It's good to hear that from someone who actually sees newborn babies on a regular basis. Everybody else talks about how tiny she is, and to me she seems huge!
I'll update with pictures tomorrow (hopefully...), but today we've been at my Mum and Dad's place. Naomi had her first shots today (they do them at 6 weeks in NZ, not 2 months), so she was pretty grumpy. And since it was such a cold day today, I opted to come to their place as it's much warmer. I didn't want Naomi to be cold and in pain. Poor thing's having a rough day, lots of crying. I'm giving her Panadol (Tylenol) and if she really loses it this evening I'll probably try a bath (Thanks Jennifer C. B. for that idea!)
We leave for the US in a week. Oh geez.... I've got a LOT to do. And while I'm not complaining about the cold (coz I spent most of the summer complaining about the heat), I'm looking forward to June in Pennsylvania. Looking forward is an understatement. Winter arrived with the vengeance last night! Wow!
Enjoy the weather my dear North American friends! I'm coming soon!
