A Post By Mom (Finally!)

By KimA Day in the Life

So, Syd is 6 weeks old today and going through her second growth spurt.  This means that she is a little more grouchy than normal and wants to eat much more often.  These add up to a tired Mom.  I tried doing some light yardwork today but Syd screamed every time I put her down.  We then came inside, she ate, and then fell asleep on my lap.  And all was right with our little world again.

Syd had her Pediatrician visit last week and we were amazed by her growth.  She weighed in at 10 pounds 12 ounces and 23 inches.  This puts her in the 97th percentile in length and 95th percentile in weight.  We are still trying to figure out who her real parents are.

By the way, people are asking why they haven’t seen Syd on the live cam yet.  This is above her crib and she is still sleeping in the bassinet in our room for a couple more weeks.  Check back then.
