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.
