She's over 10lbs!!!!!!!
It's crazy. I couldn't understand in the beginning why anyone would need a nursing pillow....Until my child got heavy. I get it. Yesterday, I met a lady on the street who was walking her 2 week old baby girl. Her daughter was the same size as Autumn...Just floppier and still with that fresh newborn look...You know, fuzzy and wrinkly and red. It dawned on me that I had a pretty small baby. I mean, she was huge for a 7 weeks preemie, but small nonetheless. She is growing fast though...There is no slowing her down. I feel like I'm constantly pouting over clothes that fit yesterday and are too small today. Thank goodness for the generosity of Squirrel's friends and family...She has clothes to fit until she's a big girl!
We are really looking forward to visits from Aunties Rebecca & Melissa next week and Brian & Stafford too, of course! It's been very obvious lately that our girl is working up to some big smiles. We aren't totally there yet, but we are close!! Hopefully we'll have smiles and giggles for the aunties while they're here.
