Two-Week Check Up

Nora had her two-week check up today. Here's her stats:

Weight: 9 lbs 9 oz, 90th percentile
Length: 22 in, 95th percentile
Head size: 14.5 in, 70th percentile

In the words of Dr. Kopas, "She's a chunk." Yeah, she gained a solid pound in 9 days. 'Normal' is an ounce a day. When I had Lillian, the lactation consultant said that my milk was more like heavy whipping cream instead of regular milk. So it's that, and the fact that I have enough milk to feed at least 10 babies. Maybe 15.

Nora fits comfortably in size three month clothes and I feel a little bit like I got cheated out of two months' worth of baby. Her head would appear to be normal sized, so hopefully we won't have to go through the whole rigmarole that we did with Lillian. Tyler's theory is that in order to get a baby with a normal sized head, we just had to super-size the rest of her as well.
