All Bottle Feeding Now
Molly is gulping down milk at such an impressive rate that the doctor put her on all bottle feeding--no more tube. She practically inhaled 32cc today in less than ten minutes, a sure sign of vigor and maturity. Her legs and arms have filled out because of her steady weight gain. Today, she's 3 lbs, 10 ozs.
It may be hard to tell in the pictures, but her hair is light brown now, just like her mom's. Her eyes focus on us, and she seems to purposely look around when she's held. She also has embraced feeding from the breast. Molly's energy is such that Denise was able to nurse her for 30 minutes, although milk production is low.
In other news, Denise had a shower at Aunt Jennifer's house. Several good friends showed up, we made off with a pile of stuff for Molly, and we accepted a very generous money donation from all those sweet guys at Siemens Dematic, my former employer. Thanks, guys. And thanks Jennifer for being a superb host.
Craig and I hid out and played UT2004 the whole time.Posted by tat at March 13, 2004 10:12 PM
