3 Weeks Old!

Hard to believe, but Ansley was 3 weeks old on Wednesday! We went for her well baby check up, and boy has she grown! We didn't receive any of the percentages associated with the weight, length, etc, but the doctor seemed thrilled at her growth!

When we left the hospital, she weighted 5 pounds 9 ounces and was 19 1/2 inches long. On Wednesday, she was up to 7 pounds 8 ounces (almost 2 whole pounds!!) and was 20 3/4 inches long (growing 1 1/4 inches!).

Let me just say that I can totally believe that weight because she eats non-stop...especially at night! She is not the good sleeper that her sister was, that's for sure. I'm so ready for her to eat more at each feeding so that she might sleep a little longer between feedings!

Below is a picture of her in just a diaper. She's starting to fill out her thighs, belly, and cheeks.
Here's a photo from today while she sleeps in her swing. Look at those cheeks!! (and the fluff of hair that sticks straight up on top of her head!)
