We gave Ellie her first bath on Sunday night.
It took her a bit to get used to the idea, but once she did she calmed right down and enjoyed the warm water.
We set up a space heater in the bathroom to make sure Ellie would be comfortable,
and Nicholas walked in halfway through the bath,
walked around for a minute,
and then said,
"whew! It's hot. I need to go in the shade!"
and then he walked around the bathroom, looking for somewhere cooler.
He just kept repeating it: "I need to go in the shade!"
It's his Texan survival skills kicking in.
I took Ellie to be weighed today at the doctors.
Last week they were a bit concerned that she wasn't gaining weight fast enough-they wanted me to start waking her up more at night to feed her.
Last week she had gained 4 oz in one week.
This week she gained 12 oz.
Yeah, I think she's doing just fine.
She's now 8 lbs. 14 oz. and 20 inches long. She's pretty much grown out of her newborn size clothes already. I'm so excited-I think she's going to be a chubby one!
