4 lbs 1 oz

dear world,

i went to the doctor this morning for an ultrasound to check on the growth of this new baby. everything looks great! she said that my body measured how it ought to and the baby looks just like she should. then she told me the estimated weight of the baby.

this baby currently weighs 4 lbs 1 oz! when we brought V home from the hospital, she weighed a little over 4 lbs. i can’t really believe it. the baby is measuring proportionally in the 70th percentile for growth. suddenly, labor and delivery seem a little closer and a great deal more difficult than they did yesterday.

i’ve been planning to get clothes out of the bins, washed and into the dresser for this new baby, but i wasn’t sure what size to pull out. we have preemie, newborn and 3 months. i may just start with the 3 month clothes if this baby continues to grow like she is now.

still reeling from the surprise,
