Instead of at the hospital, though, we were at the clinic with Ruby for her 2 week check-up. She is exactly 2 weeks today. And healthy as can be. I was anxious for her appointment today, I couldn't wait to see what she weighed! I can tell she's eating a lot. She consistently feeds every 3 hours. I don't even have to look at the clock. We've only given Ruby one bottle, and she sucked down 3 oz perfectly for Daddy. Otherwise I'm not sure how much she's eating, but Mommy is obviously providing enough.
Ruby weighed 7 lbs 3.5 oz at birth.
When we left the hospital she weighed 6 lbs. 12 oz.,
and today, less than 2 weeks later- she weighed 7 lbs. 14 oz!
Her doctor was very happy with everything he saw. He noted that she is already turning her head and trying to follow me when she hears my voice. We had a nice visit, discussed Ruby and her progress, and he made a point to chat with Eli and Adi about the new baby in the house, and was curious as to how they were adjusting.
I love our pediatrician, and am so happy to have someone like him to trust with the health and care of our kids.
|Big brother and Big sister were sure to be as close to the action as possible. Dr. McNamera was sure to explain to them everything he was checking with Ruby.|
