Lauren's 2-week stats

At this writing, Lauren is actually 3 weeks and 3 days but way back on July 1 (our 11th wedding anniversary!), we took her in for a well baby appointment. At 2 weeks and 1 day, she weighed 9 lbs. 2 oz. (75th percentile) and measured 21.5 inches long (90th percentile). She's smaller than her brothers were at 2 weeks; both were over 10 lbs. at that point! But "small" is relative only to her siblings as she's obviously a large infant. I will say I'm a skeptical of her length measurement as it has her growing 1.5 inches in two weeks. Maybe she's just able to stretch out more easily now and it was actually the earlier measurement that was off. Although I knew she was nursing well, it's always nice to have the reassurance of a healthy weight gain. She is perfectly healthy in all respects. And we are so thankful. Here's a picture of her at 2 weeks old, snuggling with her big-big brother.
