Pediatrician Update

We went for a visit with Dr. Fleming yesterday to check on Sarah Graves' growth.  She weighed 7 pounds 15 ounces last Tuesday and at our appointment yesterday she weighed 8 pounds 12 ounces.  That's a gain of 13 ounces in 1 week!  Babies should gain about an ounce a day, so I think it's safe to say that she is nursing well!  We are now able to let her go longer than 3 hours between feedings at night.  That is, if she desires to. 
She also checked her heart and lungs and all of that looks good too.  We will go back for our next check-up in a few weeks when she is a month old.   
Here's a picture of baby girl at her new weight!
