I'm Still Kickin'

It's hard to believe that Rowan is two weeks old!  I feel like I've been gone from the blog world for a lot longer.  I  haven't been reading or commenting as much as I should on other blogs and I haven't really been writing on my own.  Mainly this is due to the fact that I'm no longer an incubator, but now I'm a one stop food shop.  Every two hours... or sooner.  I do have good news to report!  At her two week check-up, Rowan weighed 7lbs. 6ozs.!  When she was born she weighed 6lbs. 14.3ozs, but lost 8ozs. while in the hospital so she only weighed 6lbs. 6ozs. when she came home.  She's gained a whole pound in two weeks!  I'm so proud of her.  She's also grown almost 2 inches in length.  We still haven't received any news about her PKU test re-do.  Fingers crossed that we receive those soon.

I would like to be able to report all kinds of awesome happenings around here, but the truth is much more boring. The most exciting thing I've done in two weeks is take my oldest daughter out to eat at Cheddar's for her upcoming 10th birthday (on Monday).  We're planning a mini-road trip to Chattanooga to take her to the Tennessee Aquarium.  Last year we visited the Louisville Zoo and we all had a blast.

I'm not looking forward to getting up around 4am to make the 4 hour drive down there, but seeing how excited she was when we told her our plans was all the motivation that I needed.  I hope it's all the motivation that everyone else needs too!

  1. I'm sure you're busy, busy, busy even if it is boring. I can't seem to find much time to blog either. Mostly, I just don't want to make the time.
