I took Ellie to the doctor today to get her two week checkup. The doctor said she is looking good. Her weight is back up to 5 lbs, 9.5 oz! I’m beginning to see her fill out a little (but only just a little).
Samantha is doing very well around Ellie. She can be a bit rough, but loves to help pat and burp. And she’s a big help to throw Ellie’s diapers in the trash.
The doctor said she needed visual stimulation (already? She’s still just a blob! EDIT: Ok, so she’s not a blob. But she still sleeps a lot that it seems she wouldn’t need a mobile yet if she’s always asleep.) and she needed to listen to lots of music. We listen to plenty of Raffi (thanks to Samantha) so I need to add some other types in the mix. I got out a gym toy this afternoon for her to lay under. Guess what Samantha did?
And when did Samantha become a giant?! She is about 7 times Ellie’s size. Sam is doing very well on the potty (naptime is still an issue-I’m thinking of switching to diapers/pullups at nap) so the only time she wears a diaper is at night. After changing Ellie’s diapers all day, doing the one of Samantha’s at night seems so different! She’s growing up!

My granddaughter is no “blob.”
My daughter is no “blob” either. Also, pull-ups are evil.
neither of my nieces are a “blob.”
Do you only have two nieces, Alex?
That’s great news! I’m so glad she’s gaining, maybe things will get a little easier.
Just so you know, Jackson STILL wears a pull-up at night. UGH
My granddaughter is no “blob” either. A bit flexible and needs support – yes. You are doing great!
