Growing and growing

Lea had her one month well check this past Tuesday. She continues to gain weight, averaging about one pound every two weeks. So, she now weighs 10 pounds 2.5 ounces. She is in the 75th percentile for weight and height.

We also learned that she has reflux. I am so glad we found out early in the game! Poor thing would get fussy after about 10 minutes of nursing and I didn't know why. Now we can give her some medicine (Zantac in liquid form) to help her feel better. Other than that, she is as healthy as can be! We were told to start giving Lea 'tummy time' which we tried yesterday for the first time. She was amazing (of course), holding her head up and looking around!

Here she is, smiling, while we waited for the pediatrician.

Yesterday, my mom came up and we took Lea to the movies with us to see Where the Wild Things Are. It was a very cute movie and Lea did great. She slept in her Serena and Lilly Market Sling while I held a burp cloth over her ears to muffle the sound.

Tomorrow we are going to try a bottle for the first time. The pediatrician feels confidant that this is perfect timing to try it.


  1. She is so precious. Glad things are going well, I'd love to get together!

  2. Look at that cute little belly : ) Lea looks like her beautiful Mommy!!! : )
