Sophia had her two week check-up this morning and weighed in at 7 lbs 10 oz. She’s gained an entire pound since her appointment last Sunday! No worries about this little one’s appetite. And she sleeps too! I am so lucky.
Bella was a little apprehensive; but I’d made sure to repeat all morning that Sophia was going to see the doctor, that it was Sophia’s doctor. And so though she got very quiet and wanted to climb onto grandma’s lap, she didn’t fuss or cry when our doctor appeared. She did get a little….concerned on Sophia’s behalf, however, when we pulled off all her clothes and she started crying. Bella kept insisting that Sophia get dressed. So it looks like we’ve conquered the terror of the doctor or at least got it under control for now.
All in all it was a successful expedition; but it wore me out. We came home and I fed Sophia and then slept in the recliner with a blissed-out Sophia perched upon my chest. And isn’t that a pleasant way to spend an afternoon?
