i birthed a weed!

i took campbell to the doctor today for a follow up well visit. since she was a preemie, the doctor prefers to see her a little more frequently than a full term baby just to make sure she's growing right and is as healthy as she can be. well, we went to the doctor on june 10 and campbell was 18.5 inches and 5 lb 10 oz. today she was 20 inches (i think) and 6 lb 12 oz! i couldn't believe it! i was hoping that she would be around 6 lbs...boy was i wrong! everything else looked great, except that she is still a little jaundiced. i think i'm going to start putting her near some windows or maybe we'll start taking some walks to get her a little sunshine to make the jaundice go away. but overall, she's as healthy as a horse and growing like a weed! i love it! here she is home from her appointment - pooped!

They grow so fast, it always makes me sad. I love taking babies out cause it wears them out and then you have time to do stuff!! We are going to be in Edmond for the first 3 weeks of July, maybe we could meet up at Cuppies and Joe sometime, or where ever. So glad everything worked out so well with her being early!

She is adorable!!!
I remember my brothers being jaundice... and my mom would always let them nap naked in the sun (that was shining through the window) Worked like a charm!
