Miss Piggy

So, we've got a little porker on our hands. 

When this little lady was born, she weighed 6lbs 11oz. At her first doctor's checkup, she had dropped to 6lbs 6oz, which the doctor said was completely normal. 

Well, in the two weeks since her first doctor's appointment, she has gained almost two whole pounds. She had her second checkup last Thursday and the doctor had the nurse weigh her twice because she thought the scale was wrong. She was up to 7lbs 11oz, the doctor said it was great but she was surprised she'd gained so much. 

This made momma super super happy because we had a rough time really getting the hang of breastfeeding and I was quite worried that she wasn't getting enough or gaining weight like she was suppose to, turns out I had nothing to worry about!

We weighed her last night and she is 8lbs 5oz. That's gaining a pound a week! We took this picture just before bath time and were laughing away because her (little) belly is huge! Her cheeks are porking out and I just love it. 

I'm happy she won't be growing at this rate forever, but it makes me so happy knowing she's healthy and that she is getting enough to eat. And her chubby cheeks and baby beer belly...I can't get enough. 


  1. must have got the baby beer belly from her Uncle Jer :)
