It’s been a week since the last post and it was a week loaded with activity. It’s been hot, in the 30′s all week, which adds to the exhaustion. We had to keep the baby downstairs until we could cool the house down later at night. A very busy weekend including Duncan & Carrie’s wedding with each of us attending stag and staggette parties while the other took care of Kahlara. Maureen is feeling much better and managed to make it through the weekend in one piece. It was Kahlara’s first wedding appearance which gave her a chance to meet more family and friends. The heat made it tough but Maureen managed to find shady areas and keep Kahlara cool. I was in the wedding party so I wasn’t much help but Grandma and Grossmami where eager to assist so it was all good in the end.
We got to relax a bit more later in the week as we got into some routines. She’s now feeding incessantly, always hungry. She sleeps pretty well once she’s out, but otherwise it’s food, food, food! We’ve also started regularly scheduled tummy-time while she’s awake. Surprisingly she seems to like it despite the fact that her face is buried in the blanket. She moves her head around alot more this way, and tries desperately to lift it. No cries though, just concentration. It seems to be good for her. She’s also giving us many more smiles and kissy faces.
Her second doctor’s appointment was today and all is well. The doctor is very happy with her weight progress. She gained 5oz back and is now 6lb 13oz and should be back to birth weight next week. We got visits from some of the neighbors and some nice flowers from friends at work as well as an endless supply of berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc..) from Grossmami! We’re very grateful! Thanks!
