Quick Update While She Sleeps

Ruth went back to the pediatrician this morning for a weight check since she'd had some feeding issues in the beginning.

She weighed in at 9 lbs. 9 oz., almost three pounds heavier than her birth weight of 6 lbs. 12.8 oz. She is now nearing the 55th percentile for weight (I forgot to ask about length).

Ruth is also becoming more alert and tracking objects. She makes noises now -- coos and ahhs and short shrieks. She smiles too, though not at anything in particular. Her hair is falling out but that is normal.

Can't wait until Ruth is able to fully verbalize what she is thinking - but, then again, maybe I should be careful what I wish for!
