ANNAmal is 1 Month Old!

“i’ve never been overpowered by a 1 month old!” said our pediatrician this morning at anna’s well visit when the MD was trying to test anna’s hip strength and anna was fighting her tooth and nail.

she’s one tough little beefcake.

i love it. #girlpower or some such.

she’s 90th % for both height and weight (now 11 lbs 2 oz, 22 1/4″ long). she’s gained about 3 lbs in 2 weeks. apparently i have soft serve instead of breast milk up in there.

all is well, she’s right on track. zantac to start for her fussy tummy and, between that and a raging diaper rash i’m having trouble gaining control of, we might be looking at some food allergies. i already don’t do dairy, so the other common culprits for newborn irritation through the mom are berries, soy and nuts. berries i can live without, but as a mostly vegetarian, soy and nuts are kind of my meat and potatoes, if you know what i mean.

so we’ll see where i go with that and what happens there.

but it’s agreed all around that anna is an awesome little blessing.

henry is having fun with my parents and got to celebrate my sister’s bday with her! so far so good on not missing us terribly, so apparently it hasn’t messed him up too bad spending the last month glued to the outside of my leg while i limped around the house.
